Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) is a good growth stock investors should keep an eye on.
Although the e-commerce giant has helped compound investor capital considerably, it shouldn’t be taken as a mega-cap stock in potential investment returns. Interestingly the stock is in growth mode and currently trades at a reasonable valuation to long-term prospects.
In 2020, the company had revenue of $386 billion. Although this may look awful, it’s vital to note that retail sales globally are approximately $25 trillion per year, and in the US, it is $6 trillion. However, e-commerce accounts for only $4 trillion globally and 1 trillion in the US. In the coming years, e-commerce will grow, with retail sales increasing to 22% by 2024 from 18% in 2020. Therefore, there is potential to grow sales in the long term. Besides e-commerce, the company generates revenue from cloud computing, a market currently growing faster than even e-commerce. The stock looks to have strong fundamentals, and although there will be some downturns from time to time, it is still a stock investor should watch.
