Trump establishes Task Force to evaluate operations, finances of USPS

The President has issued an executive order to establish a Task Force on the United States Postal Service to be chaired by the Secretary of the Treasury, as Secretary and as Chairman of the Federal Financing Bank, or his designee, to evaluate the operations and finances of the USPS, it was announced yesterday night. While the executive order makes no specific reference to Amazon (AMZN), President Trump has frequently criticized the e-commerce giant's relationship with the USPS in recent tweets. Stamps.com's (STMP), whose software allows customers to print stamps and subscribers to buy postage at a discounted rate, fell over 7% today following the issuance of the order. Reference Link

Amazon mindshare down slightly in Piper's semi-annual teen survey
Piper Jaffray's semi-annual survey of over 6,000 U.S. teens showed a slight decline in Amazon (AMZN) mindshare and that Prime adoption continues across all demographics, analyst Michael Olson tells investors in a research note. Amazon mindshare decreased two percentage points versus the prior survey. At 44% mindshare, however, Amazon has nearly eight times more mindshare than its nearest competitor Nike (NKE), Olson points out. He notes the also survey indicates that the number of U.S. Prime households would be in the high-70M range and growing at a decelerating rate. The analyst reiterates an Overweight rating on Amazon shares with a $1,650 price target.

Credit Suisse seeks 'silver bullet' for Amazon, finds 'sticks and stones'
Credit Suisse analyst Stephen Ju conducted a sensitivity analysis to examine the potential range of outcomes for Amazon (AMZN) in the event of a USPS price increase, saying that while he was looking for a "silver bullet," he found "only sticks and stones." In a research note to investors, Ju said he went into the analysis seeking a possible "silver bullet" which may disrupt the level of service given Amazon's dependency on the UPS to push its consumer value proposition, adding that the current assumption is that USPS accounts for about 40%-50% of Amazon's shipping cost in the U.S. Ju said he arrived at about $1B-$1.8B in potential incremental shipping costs this year that Amazon may decide to absorb, or it could pass some, if not all, of the incremental costs onto the consumer via a Prime price hike. He believes the pullback in Amazon shares has more to do with devaluation of its megacap Internet peers, including Facebook (FB), versus the new round of tweets from President Trump which highlighted the reliance Amazon has on the USPS.

Zillow move into iBuying 'Amazon-esque,' says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Jonathan Lanterman noted that Zillow (ZG) announced its entrance into "iBuying" with the expansion of its Instant Offers program, via which the company will get into the home buying and selling transaction market. While Zillow will potentially be taking on balance sheet risk and utilizing higher debt loads than it has in the past, Lanterman sees the move to target a market with lower margins but one with a larger total addressable market as "Amazon-esque." He expects investors who were bullish on Zillow to view the entrance into iBuying positively and for already bearish investors to view this move skeptically. Lanterman currently has an Overweight rating on Zillow shares, but noted that his model is under review.
