Several major Wall Street analysts predicted that Amazon's stock would jump by more than 30% after the e-commerce giant smashed expectations for its second quarter on Thursday night.
The company reported $10.30 in earnings per share and $88.91 billion of revenue for the quarter, easily topping consensus estimates on both fronts.
The stock has already been a big winner for investors this year, rising more than 60% as the pandemic put a premium on online shopping and delivery services. Shares rose sharply after the earnings results were announced, gaining 3.7% on Friday after closing Thursday's session at roughly $3,052.
