Amazon Reveals Where Its Bond Money Will Go

Amazon (AMZN) has tapped the bond market to raise about $12.8 billion. The e-commerce and cloud computing giant sold multiple bonds maturing between 2024 and 2062, and has hired investment banks Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan Chase (JPM), and Morgan Stanley (MS) to help with the bond sale.

Amazon plans to use the bond proceeds for general corporate purposes, which it says may include working capital, acquisitions, and share repurchases. In March, the company launched a $10 billion share repurchase program without a fixed expiration date. Amazon also plans a 20-for-1 stock split.

Wall Street’s Take

Consensus among analysts is a Strong Buy based on 34 Buys and one Sell. The average Amazon price forecast stands at $4,143.76 and implies upside potential of 37% to current levels. Shares have declined 11% year-to-date.
