Amazon Q2 Earnings Miss Put These ETFs in Focus

Sweta Killa

The company offered upbeat revenue guidance for the ongoing quarter. For the third quarter, the company expects revenues to grow 17-24% to $66-$70 billion. The mid-point of the range is slightly above the current Zacks Consensus Estimate of $67.2 billion, which indicates 18.8% growth. Amazon is facing heightened regulatory scrutiny with antitrust officials in the United States and European Union launching investigations into the company’s business practices (read: Antitrust Probe Likely to Hit These Tech ETFs).

Market Impact

The earnings miss pushed shares of AMZN lower as much as 2.5% in aftermarket hours on elevated volume. The stock currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) and VGM Score of B, suggesting that Amazon is primed for growth in the future. Further, Amazon belongs to a bottom-ranked industry (top 21%).

Given this, investors could tap the beaten down price of Amazon in the form of ETFs with the highest allocation to this Internet giant. Below, we have highlighted five of them:
