JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth wrote in a note to clients last week that he is sticking to his $1110 December 2017 price target and overweight rating for Amazon, saying the retailer is still in the early stages of its growth.

"We believe Amazon is well positioned as the market leader in e-commerce, where it's still early days with U.S. e-commerce representing ~12 percent of adjusted retail sales (ex-gas, food, and autos)," Mr Anmuth wrote.

"We believe Amazon continues to show strong ability to take share of overall e-commerce, and its flexibility in pushing first-party vs. third-party inventory and its Prime offering both serve as major advantages."
