In a note to clients this morning, Goldman Sachs analyst Heath Terry reiterated his Conviction Buy List rating and raised his price target on (NASDAQ: AMZN) to $1,050.00 (from $920.00) ahead of Q3 results on 10/27 after the close.

The firm sees revenue of roughly $33 billion, versus the consensus of $32.7 billion, as slight acceleration in AWS offsets deceleration in eCommerce. They expect adjusted operating income of $1.42bn, implying 4.3% margins.

For AWS, they expect +60% yoy growth in revenue in 3Q. For eCommerce, they expect N. America revenue growth of 27% in 3Q (28% in 2Q) and international growth of +28.4% ex-FX vs. +28% ex-FX in 2Q.

On guidance, they expect the company to guide to $43-46 billion in revenue (+20-29% yoy) and $1.0-$2.0 billion in GAAP operating profits.

"At 20X 2017E cash EPS vs. +23% FX-neutral sales growth in 2017E, we believe the risk/reward remains favorable as investments in web services, infrastructure, and logistics result in share gains, cash flow growth, and continued high returns on investment," he said.
