BofA Securities analyst Justin Post lowered estimates and the price target on (NASDAQ: AMZN) to $168.00 (from $188.00) while maintaining a Buy rating ahead of earnings. While the consumer outlook is cloudy, they remain positive on depressed profits and valuation.

The analyst commented, "Amazon (AMZN) reports 7/28 and we are lowering 2022 & 2023 estimates to reflect recent FX pressure and BofA outlook for mild 4Q recession. Ex-FX, we expect meet/beat 2Q, as BAC aggregated credit and debit card data points to 2pts of q/q US eCommerce growth, in-line with estimates. For 3Q, Prime Day results and our BAC data on Fourth of July (see reports) Online spending point to a good start to the quarter, but we still see some risk to margin guide given gas price inflation and industry gross margin pressure. FX is a big 3Q headwind (not fully in Street ests), but the good news is eCommerce industry comps ease materially going forward."
