Will Amazon Stock Reach $4,000 By 2022?

Every week, Benzinga conducts a sentiment survey to find out what traders are most excited about, interested in or thinking about as they manage and build their personal portfolios.

We surveyed a group of over 500 investors on whether shares of Amazon.com, Inc. AMZN will reach $4,000 by 2022. 

Amazon Stock Forecast

As one of the world’s highest-grossing e-commerce platforms, Amazon is more than retail services alone: streams of revenue for the tech giant also include Kindle, Audible and Music subscriptions as well as its IT service management subsidiary AWS. 

To get a sense for Amazon’s revenue streams: online product and digital media sales comprised 50% of net revenue for the entirety of 2019, followed by commissions, related fulfillment and shipping fees and other third-party seller services (19%). 

Next in revenue sources is Amazon Web Services' cloud computing, storage and database services (13%). Prime membership fees and other subscription-based services (7%), product sales at Whole Foods and other physical store retail formats (6%) and advertising services and co-branded credit cards (5%) round out Amazon's revenue streams.

Seventy-two percent of Benzinga traders and investors told us Amazon would reach $4,000 per share by the end of next year.

Traders and investors who participated in our study said shares of Amazon will see strength through 2021 given heightened demand for e-commerce products and services post-pandemic. 

Many respondents shared that they see Amazon as a tech company first and foremost.

In their view, the company’s impressive diversification of revenue streams by means of subscription services like Amazon Prime; digital streaming; as well as AWS cloud computing platforms for businesses will help ensure shares of the FAANG stock reach at least $4,000 by 2022.
