Is Amazon Com well positioned for November economic uncertainties?
Amazon Com currently holds 91.4 B in liabilities with Debt to Equity (D/E) ratio of 1.24, which is about average as compared to similar companies. The entity has a current ratio of 1.16, suggesting that it is in a questionable position to pay out its financial obligations when due. Amazon is FAIRLY VALUED at 3,161 per share with modest projections ahead.
We determine the current worth of Amazon Com using both absolute as well as relative valuation methodologies to arrive at its intrinsic value. In general, an absolute valuation paradigm, as applied to this company, attempts to find the value of Amazon Com based exclusively on its fundamental and basic technical indicators. By analyzing Amazon's financials, quarterly and monthly indicators, and related drivers such as dividends, operating cash flow, and various types of growth rates, we attempt to find the most accurate representation of Amazon's intrinsic value. In some cases, mostly for established, large-cap companies, we also incorporate more traditional valuation methods such as dividend discount, discounted cash flow, or asset-based models. As compared to an absolute model, our relative valuation model uses a comparative analysis of Amazon. We calculate exposure to Amazon's market risk, different technical and fundamental indicators, relevant financial multiples and ratios, and then comparing them to Amazon's related companies.

Our Conclusion on Amazon

Whereas some other companies under the internet retail industry are still a bit expensive, Amazon may offer a potential longer-term growth to institutional investors. To sum up, as of the 25th of October 2020, our analysis shows that Amazon almost neglects market trends. The company is fairly valued and projects very small probability of financial unrest for the next 2 years. Our latest 30 days buy vs. sell advice on the company is Cautious Hold.
