American e-commerce and technology company Amazon’s (AMZN) share prices fell over the past two weeks, reversing gains made after it reported rising income for the fourth quarter and full-year.

Seattle-headquartered Amazon provides e-commerce, cloud infrastructure and streaming services across digital content, including TV, movies, music and books. According to CompaniesMarketCap, Amazon is the fourth largest company by market capitalisation at $1.528trn.

The NASDAQ exchange-listed company stock price closed at $3,052.03 on 18 February, down 3.2% from $3,152.70 on 4 February. Amazon stock value also fell 1.3% compared with a year ago.

According to the Amazon historical stock price, shares have been rising in value since January 2020. The price hit an all-time high of $3,731.41 on 8 July 2021. Amazon stock came under pressure after outages on the cloud infrastructure Amazon Web Service on 7 December, and fell as low as $2,776.91 on 3 February 2022.

However, following the release of a strong quarterly and full-year financial result on 3 February, Amazon stock climbed back above $3,000. Cliff D’Arcy, of investment guide website The Motley Fool, wrote on 4 February:

“Despite a predicted sales slowdown and rapidly rising costs, investors have yet to lose faith in the e-commerce Goliath.”

Amazon’s Q4 and 2021 net income jumped

Rising retail sales and non-operating income from Rivian Automotive stock investment boosted Amazon’s net sales and net income in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Amazon’s net sales in Q4 increased to $137.4bn, up 9% compared with the same quarter in 2020. The company’s Q4 net income nearly doubled year-on-year (YoY) to $14.3bn.

Higher Q4 net income was partly driven by Amazon’s common stock investment in recently listed Rivian Automotive, which generated a pre-tax valuation gain of $11.8bn of non-operating income.

Amazon’s 2021 full-year sales jumped to $469.8bn, up 22% compared with 2020, while net income spiked by 57% YoY to $33.4bn.

Sales in North America generated the most revenue, accounting for 60% of the total, or $279.8bn in sales. They were followed by revenue from non-US markets, which made up 27% of total sales at $127.7bn. The company’s cloud infrastructure segment, Amazon Web Service (AWS), accounted for 13%, or $62.2bn, of the sales revenue. 

Amazon net sales in $ millions

Andy Jassy, CEO of Amazon, said:

“As expected over the holidays, we saw higher costs driven by labour supply shortages and inflationary pressures, and these issues persisted into the first quarter due to Omicron. Despite these short-term challenges, we continue to feel optimistic and excited about the business as we emerge from the pandemic.”

In Q1 2022, Amazon expects net sales to grow between 3%-8% YoY to $112bn to 117bn, and operating income at $3bn to $6bn.

Amazon said it will continue to invest heavily in Prime, its premium membership service that provides free, fast unlimited shipping for its e-commerce platform and digital content streaming (including TV, movies, music and books) for its members. 

In response to higher wages and transportation costs, Amazon will be raising its Prime membership fee for the first time since 2018. In the US, the monthly Prime membership price will increase from $12.99 to $14.99 and annual membership from $119 to $139. For new Prime members, the price change will go into effect on 18 February 2022, and for current Prime members, the new price will apply after 25 March 2022, on the date of their next renewal.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
