EPS of $0.52 came in below consensus at $0.77. 4Q guidance was below expectations and reflects the step up in investment. Management expects net sales of $42.0-45.5B (midpoint of $43.8B), below cons at $44.6B.

Analyst Brian Fitzgerald commented, "AMZN reported a mixed qtr with in-line rev and a bit soft margins. Guidance came in below expectations as AMZN keeps investing in India, fulfillment, digital content, and AWS. We continue to believe that AMZN should be a core eCommerce holding as it still has plenty of growth opportunities ahead. The company remains one of the best large-cap ideas in our coverage universe, with one of the most significant moats. We reiterate our Buy and $950 PT."
