    Amazon on Thursday posted its third quarter results, posting earnings far below market expectations.

    Overall, Amazon's net income came to $252 million in the third quarter, or 52 cents a share. Revenue came to $32.7 billion. In the same quarter last year, Amazon reported earnings of 17 cents a share on $25.36 billion in revenue.

    Wall Street was looking for earnings of 78 cents a share on revenue of $32.69 billion.

    Operating income was $575 million in the third quarter, compared with $406 million in third quarter 2015.

    Amazon Web Services earned $3.231 billion in revenue, up nearly 55 percent year-over-year. Its operating income came to $861 million -- more than three times the operating income of Amazon's North American e-commerce business, which came to $255 million.

    Meanwhile, its international business lost $541 million.

    Amazon earnings: 52 cents per share, vs. expected EPS of 78 cents

    Amazon misses, stock crashes.

    Amazon shares fell in extended trading after it reported earnings per share that came in far below analyst estimates on Thursday.

    The company posted third-quarter earnings per share of 52 cents on revenue of $32.71 billion on Thursday. Analysts expected the online retail giant to post earnings of 78 cents a share on revenue of $32.69 billion, according to a Thomson Reuters consensus estimate.

    The stock fell more than 4 percent in extended trading as more than 1.2 million shares changed hands.

    The e-commerce giant saw $18.87 billion in North America sales during the quarter. That figure comes in below analyst expectations for $19.09 billion, according to FactSet. International sales, however, came in at $10.61 billion, above Wall Street projections for $10.44 billion, according to FactSet.

    Amazon's revenue outlook also came in slightly below expectations. The company said it expects fourth-quarter sales between $42 billion and $45.5 billion. The midpoint of that range came in below analyst expectations for fourth-quarter sales around $44.58 billion, according to a Thomson Reuters consensus estimate.

    Amazon Web Services, the company's cloud computing business, brought in $3.23 billion in revenue during the quarter. Wall Street projected AWS to bring in $3.17 billion in sales during the quarter, according to a FactSet consensus estimate.

    Operating margin for AWS climbed to 31.6 percent, up from 29.9 percent in the previous quarter.

    Last week, Pacific Crest Securities raised its full-year revenue estimate for Amazon Web Services and said the segment's revenue could grow 61 percent and 60 percent annually in 2016 and 2017, respectively.

    While the cloud services market is increasingly competitive, "the shift to cloud is still early enough that multiple vendors can continue to grab new business while maintaining high growth trajectories," Pacific Crest said in a research note.

    The stock has been on a tear this year, gaining 21 percent and hit a new all-time high as recently as Oct. 6 at $847.21 a share. Historically, Amazon has been a good stock to hold going into the holiday season, Nomura said in a research note.

    "In 8 of the last 11 years, AMZN has out-performed the SPX between October 1st and the end of the year and has seen double digit out-performance in 3 of those 8 years," the firm said in a note published Monday.

    The company said it expects to create 120,000 seasonal jobs this holiday season and that it expects to transition more of those seasonal workers into full-time roles. Amazon said it transitioned 14,000 seasonal workers last year.

    Amazon Drops 6%: Q4 Revenue, Profit View Miss Consensus

    October 27, 2016

    Amazon (AMZN) this afternoon reported Q3 revenue in line with consensus and EPS that fell far short, and forecast revenue this quarter lower as well, driving its shares down 6% in late trading.

    Revenue in the three months ended rose 29%, year over year, to $32.7 billion, yielding EPS of 52 cents, excluding some costs.

    The company delivered operating profit of $575 million.

    For the current quarter, the company sees revenue of $42 billion to $45.5 billion, and operating income in a range of break-even to $1.25 billion. That is below consensus for $44.577 billion and $1.7 billion in operating income.

    Sales in Amazon’s North American segment rose by 26%, down from Q2′s 28% level and the year-earlier 29% rate. International sales of $10.61 billion rose by 28%, speeding up from 24% a year earlier.

    Amazon’s Amazon Web Services cloud computing facility rose by 55%, year over year, slowing from the 58% in the prior quarter and 78% a year earlier. Operating income at AWS was $861 million, double what it was a year earlier.

    CEO Jeff Bezos took the opportunity to trumpet the company’s “Alexa” intelligent assistant, saying “Alexa be Amazon’s most loved invention yet — literally — with over 250,000 marriage proposals from customers and counting.”

    He continued, “And she’s just getting better. Because Alexa’s brain is in the cloud, we can easily and continuously add to her capabilities and make her more useful — wait until you see some of the surprises the team is working on now.”

    Amazon shares are down $52.16, or 6.4%, at $766.20, in late trading.

    Amazon Wants to Open 2000 Grocery Stores Across the US

    Amazon has big plans for its brick-and-mortar grocery stores.

    The e-retailer wants to open 2,000 Amazon Fresh grocery stores in the U.S. within the next 10 years, according to documents obtained by Business Insider. Amazon will start by opening 20 stores over the next couple of years as a pilot program, while also testing out two different store concepts.

    One concept is a “click and collect” store, where customers can pick up groceries they previously ordered online. The second is similar to a traditional grocery store. The documents also show that the company is considering whether or not it should make the stores exclusive to members of its grocery delivery service, Prime Fresh.

    The 20 test locations are expected to open in metropolitan areas like Seattle, New York, Las Vegas, Miami, and the Bay Area by 2018.

    While other retailers are struggling to compete with Amazon in the digital space, Amazon is working to pick up a slice of the brick-and-mortar business. Fortune has previously reported that the company plans to open 100 pop-up stores by next year. Additionally, pleased with results from the bookstores it opened up at the beginning of this year, Amazon says that it “definitely” plans to open up more.
