Amazon confirms plans to train 100,000 workers in new skills

Amazon pledged to upskill 100,000 of its employees across the United States, dedicating over $700M to provide people across its corporate offices, tech hubs, fulfillment centers, retail stores, and transportation network with access to training programs that will help them move into more highly skilled roles within or outside of Amazon. Amazon's Upskilling 2025 pledge invests in a range of new upskilling programs to serve employees from all backgrounds and Amazon locations. Programs include Amazon Technical Academy, which equips non-technical Amazon employees with the essential skills to transition into, and thrive in, software engineering careers; Associate2Tech, which trains fulfillment center associates to move into technical roles regardless of their previous IT experience; Machine Learning University, offering employees with technical backgrounds the opportunity to access machine learning skills via an on-site training program; Amazon Career Choice, a pre-paid tuition program designed to train fulfillment center associates in high-demand occupations of their choice; Amazon Apprenticeship, a Department of Labor certified program that offers paid intensive classroom training and on-the-job apprenticeships with Amazon; and AWS Training and Certification, which provide employees with courses to build practical AWS Cloud knowledge that is essential to operating in a technical field. "Through our continued investment in local communities in more than 40 states across the country, we have created tens of thousands of jobs in the U.S. in the past year alone," said Beth Galetti, Senior Vice President, HR. "For us, creating these opportunities is just the beginning. While many of our employees want to build their careers here, for others it might be a stepping stone to different aspirations. We think it's important to invest in our employees, and to help them gain new skills and create more professional options for themselves. With this pledge, we're committing to support 100,000 Amazonians in getting the skills to make the next step in their careers."

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.
