Amazon stock

Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) stock price soared above $2000 mark after analysts raised their price targets. The fourth-quarter results are playing a key role in strengthening analyst’s and investor’s sentiments. The world’s largest online retailer exceeded estimates by a large margin. Some analysts are anticipating an almost 50% increase for AMZN share price.

The company’s strategy of expanding its grocery business along with the potential launch of a large-format grocery chain this year is among the biggest catalysts for AMZN share price. Amazon stock price performance remained soft in fiscal 2019. AMZN share price grew in a single-digit during the last year compared to the S&P 500 rally of close to 30%.
