Amazon (AMZN) will report second quarter results this afternoon and will host a call at 17:30. 

Analysts expect Q2 operating income up 23% to $3.65 bln, with EPS up 9% to $5.54 and revenue up 18% to $62.6 bln. Amazon guided for Q2 operating income of $2.6-3.6 bln on revenue of $59.5-63.5 bln. 

The Street expects Q3 operating income up 18% to $4.38 bln with revenue up 19% to $67.36 bln. 

Amazon has beaten earnings estimates seven quarters in a row.

Amazon Web Services is expected to maintain strong growth (+42% in Q1) with healthy operating margins (+320 bps to 28.9%) after Microsoft's Azure showed the public cloud business continues to surge last week. 

Like big tech peers, Amazon is in the cross hairs of regulators. The company has nearly 50% eCommerce market share in the US.


With a market cap just under $1 trln, the stock trades at ~22x forward cash flow estimates, a premium to FB and MSFT
