Future outlook and Mark Lehmann’s comments
For the current fiscal quarter, Amazon forecasts operating loss in the range of $1.0 billion to $3.0 billion on $116 billion to $121 billion in net revenue. This compares to analysts at $6.78 billion of operating income on $125.33 billion in revenue.
According to Amazon, its annual Prime Day sale this year will be in July. On CNBC’s “Closing Bell”, JMP Securities’ Mark Lehmann said:
Amazon’s guide wasn’t great, which isn’t very surprising considering the year we have ahead. They wanted to set the bar a little lower. But the market’s very disappointed. And it is concerning. There’s fears of a consumer that’s a bit softer and they didn’t see explosive number out of the cloud. So, that’s a tough pill to crack.
