[Updated 07/10/2020] Amazon’s stock is at an all time high, but will it rise further?

After rising nearly 70% since the market bottomed on March 23 of this year, we believe Amazon stock has no room for growth at its current record price of around $ 3,200 per share. While the company is expected to continue to experience strong revenue growth for the foreseeable future, and the growing contribution from its high margin Amazon Web Services business is also expected to have a positive impact on profit margin, we believe the current figure of the P / E multiple of almost 140x is already too high – making further stock price gains very unlikely.

AMZN’s stock rose from around $ 1,900 to $ 3,200 as of March 23, 2020 – better than the S&P 500, which rose around 41% during that time. The share price soared as Amazon took advantage of millions of people in the United States and abroad turning to online marketplaces to meet their basic needs such as groceries, food, toiletries and medicines. In these uncertain times when companies are cutting wages and jobs, Amazon has raised wages and hired more than 100,000 warehouse and delivery workers – and plans to hire more as it struggles to meet demand. huge and unexpected increase in demand. At the end of April 2020, the company had a workforce of 935K employees. In the first quarter of 2020, the company recorded a 26% growth in turnover compared to the previous year.

Part of the increase in stock prices over the period 2016-2019 is justified by the fact that revenues have more than doubled. Amazon revenue grew from $ 136 billion in 2016 to $ 281 billion in 2019, mainly thanks to the contribution of Retail

North America segment sales. The improvement in the net margin from 1.7% in 2016 to 4.1% in 2019 allowed the net income to increase by 137% over the period.

The share price rose during this period as margins and revenues increased, despite normalizing the P / E multiple from 150x in 2016 to 79x in 2019. However, the multiple increased again this year, as people turn to online retail and web services. during the coronavirus pandemic, and the figure is currently at a high level of around 140x.

Coronavirus effect

The global spread of the coronavirus has resulted in lockdowns in various cities around the world, affecting industrial and economic activity. This is likely to negatively affect consumption and consumer spending. Notably, Amazon’s stock has increased by around 58% since Jan.31, after the World Health Organization declared a global health emergency in light of the spread of the coronavirus. However, during the same time period, the S&P 500 Index experienced a decline of about 2%. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, the company saw 26% growth in total revenue in the first quarter of 2020. Amazon’s web services led the recorded revenue growth to 33% year-on-year, while sales revenue retail in North America grew 29% year-on-year.
