UBS upgraded (NASDAQ: AMZN) from Neutral to Buy with a price target of $385.00 (from $305.00).

Analyst Eric J. Sheridan said, "We are upgrading shares of Amazon from Neutral to Buy & taking our PT to $385 (from $305) on the back of a bullish secular backdrop for Amazon's position in multichannel commerce & specific items that we think could propel both higher operating results and stock outperformance over the coming 12-18 months. Specific drivers for our upgrade: a) our expectations for a reacceleration of revenue growth and paid unit growth in Q4 and beyond (indicators being strong seasonal hiring trends, video game/console sales, easing paid unit comparisons, AWS); b) the globalization of its Kindle ecosystem; & c) its under-appreciated Advertising business."
