Amazon reports a tripling of Q1 earnings

Earnings came in at 98 cents per share, better than the 84 cents anticipated, revenue also beat forecast, rising 13% to $143.3 billion, $700 million more than thought. Other parts of the business also did well including Amazon Web Service revenues $25 billion on estimates of $24.5 billion and advertising revenues of $11.8 billion, just beating estimates of $11.7 billion.

But the market was disappointed by Amazon’s expectations for the current quarter. The company sees revenue between $144 billion and $149 billion, compared with analyst consensus expectations of $150 billion.

Earnings per share were 98 cents, surpassing the predicted 84 cents. Amazon Web Services and advertising revenues also exceeded expectations, contributing significantly to their financial performance.
