Amazon plans to train 100,000 workers in new skills, WSJ reports

Amazon.com is expected to announce on Thursday it plans to retrain a third of its U.S. workforce to help its employees move into more advanced jobs or find new careers, including in aircraft mechanics and nursing, The Wall Street Journal's Chip Cutter reports. Amazon will spend $700M to retrain 100,000 workers by 2025 by expanding existing training programs and rolling out new ones meant to help its employees move into more advanced jobs inside the company or find new careers outside of it. The company will note that the training is voluntary and most of the programs will be free to employees. Reference Link

Outperform
Amazon's Prime 1-day delivery to drive higher conversion rates, says Cowen
Cowen analyst John Blackledge maintained an Outperform rating and $2,500 price target on Amazon.com, telling investors in a research note that he expects the company's move to Prime 1-day delivery to drive higher conversion rates, leading to increasing unit growth in the second half of 2019 and into 2020. Blackledge, who raised his U.S. unit forecast to 12.6% y/y CAGR for 2019-2024 vs. ~9% prior, says he thinks Prime 1-day could drive an incremental $1B-$2B in revenue this year.

Overweight
Amazon.com should be bought ahead of Q2 results, says Barclays
Amazon should report revenue acceleration in Q2 and guide below for operating income, Barclays analyst Ross Sandler tells investors in a pre-earnings research note. The analyst would add to share positions into the results. In periods of accelerating growth, little else has mattered for Amazon shares historically, contends Sandler. He believes the combination of core retail picking up slightly earlier in Q2 and the extra 3%-4% to run-rate from next day shipping should take Amazon's growth rates up from Q1. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on the shares with a $2,050 price target.

Disney battle with Netflix in OTT to be 'expensive', says Needham
Needham analyst Laura Martin keeps her Hold rating on Disney (DIS), saying that while the valuation on the stock has gapped up based on investor expectations of it "winning" the OTT battle, she believes that it will take longer for the company to "displace" Netflix (NFLX) and beat the other competitors in the space. The analyst raises her FY20 revenue estimates to $83.4B from $76.6B to account for the contribution of the new Fox assets, but also lowers her EPS view by 15c to $6.39 to reflect the higher investments tied to Disney's OTT service, as the management will have to incur higher TV production costs due to digital platform competition coming from "Netflix, Hulu, Amazon (AMZN) Video, etc."

Costco price target raised to $289 following 'solid' June comps at Stifel
Stifel analyst Mark Astrachan noted that Costco (COST) reported "solid" June comparable sales growth of 5.1% total and 5.3% for its U.S. core business, which were both a bit better than consensus forecasts. He reads the results as an indication that Costco can coexist with large hardline competitors like Walmart (WMT) while having limited cannibalization from Amazon (AMZN), Astrachan tells investors. He also continues to view it as "reasonable" that Costco could declare a special dividend in the next few quarters given its "sizable and increasing" cash balance. Astrachan keeps a Buy rating on Costco shares and raised his price target on the stock to $289 from $261.
