LEDEAmazon Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN) has earnings due out on Thursday 2018-10-25 after the market closes. Special attention should be paid to the AWS business and the now burgeoning advertising business, which has become the fastest growing segment for the company.
Amazon - By the NumbersWhile the numbers are driven by the individual business segments, namely e-commerce, AWS (cloud), advertising, and hardware, when all rolled up -- there is an expectation set by Wall Street -- and there are numbers at the top tier of that expectation as well. Guidance, at times, moves the market more than the actual quarter being reported -- so watch those numbers as well.
But, if there is a surprise to be had, one of those Amazon "I can't believe it" moments, it's going to have to come from advertising... and it very well may.
