    Amazon Stock Looks More and More Bulletproof Every Day

    Warren Buffett revealed May 3 that Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.A, NYSE:BRK.B) had invested in Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) for the first time in the holding company's history. On May 15, we found out that its initial bet on Amazon stock was $860 million or less than a half a percent of Berkshire's $199 billion equity portfolio. Source: Shutterstock Since the announcement in early May, Amazon stock has retreated in price, delaying hitting $2,000 for only the second time in its history with the first being last August. So, while the media seem obsessed by Berkshire's ownership of Amazon stock (Google search the term "Warren Buffett Amazon stock," and you'll get 812 results) you could hardly call a weighting of 0.5% a significant commitment on Buffett's part. By comparison, the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board has an Amazon weighting of 1.1% on a $51.8 billion equity portfolio. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThe fact that Buffet is a reformed value investor has investors speculating about where Amazon stock is headed next. * 6 Chinese Stocks That Could Pop On a Trade Deal As I said previously, Amazon hit $2,000 on August 30. Then, after hitting its 52-week high of $2,050.50 on September 4, it ended up retreating to below $1,400 prior to Christmas before doing the 2019 climb back to $2,000.Is $3,000 in the cards or will AMZN face another 30% correction in the second half of 2019 and into 2020? I'll make a case for both scenarios. It's Going to Continue Its Trek to $3,000Let's consider Amazon's free cash flow for the past five years. It will tell us a great deal about the company's success trajectory and overall financial health. Keep in mind that free cash flow, especially when we're talking about a serious growth company like Amazon, can be a bit lumpy as investments are made to grow segments of its business.Year Free Cash Flow YOY Growth 2018 $17.30B 167.0% 2017 $6.48B -33.3% 2016 $9.71B 32.5% 2015 $7.33B 275.9% 2014 $1.95B Source: MorningstarAs I said, you're not going to be able to avoid the lumpy factor. Long-term, however, the trend is unmistakable. Over the past four years, has grown its free cash flow at an annualized annual rate of 72.6%. So, when Buffett talks about value being the price you're willing to pay today to get more back later, he's talking about Amazon. A simple look at its free cash flow grow suggests that it's not as simple as saying AMZN is overpriced because it trades at 3,9 times sales or 53 times free cash flow.Why is that?That's because free cash flow is king. If you grow that by 73% annually and you'll find new ways to keep improving it. A Recession Could Put Amazon Stock in Full RetreatAmazon's business is going great guns right now, but what happens if a global recession takes hold?I know the odds aren't good at the moment, but investment professionals are increasingly worried that we're on a slippery slope; once we get on it, it will be tough to stop it in its tracks given interest rates are still reasonably low. "The risk of an economic downturn has increased substantially," Morgan Stanley chief equity strategist Mike Wilson stated May 13 in a note to clients. "While last week's correction helped move the risk-reward closer to balanced, we think there is likely more downside than upside based on our high conviction view that earnings expectations remain too high by 5-10 per cent."The reality is that if a 25% tariff is slapped on the remaining $325 billion in Chinese imports that don't have already have the tax applied to them, the hit to the economy is more than enough to send us into a recession. Every day that goes by that President Trump and his trade delegation don't have a signed deal with the Chinese, the likelihood of a recession increases and the probability of Amazon's share price getting anywhere near $3,000 goes right out the window. The Reality Is Likely Somewhere in BetweenI believe that most things we fear in life don't come to fruition. That is to say that life usually happens in the boring middle. Yes, there could be a recession, but even if there is one, it won't last very long. It's also possible that Amazon's AWS business will continue to print money because it's pretty hard to take away the servers once you've got a need for them.So, where to from here? If I knew that, I'd have already bought some Amazon stock. What I do know is that Warren Buffett's a patient man. As long as the fundamentals (free cash flow being a primary one) remain healthy, $3,000 will happen. It's only a matter of time.At the time of this writing Will Ashworth did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

    Friday’s Vital Data: Cisco, Amazon and Boeing

    U.S. stock futures are trading sharply lower this morning, snapping the market's three-day winning streak.Heading into the open, futures on the Dow Jones Industrial Average are down 0.78%, and S&P 500 futures are lower by 0.77%. Nasdaq-100 futures have lost 1.06%.With bulls running the tables yesterday it should come as no surprise that calls proved more popular than puts. Overall volume climbed to above average levels on the session with 19.8 million calls and 18.9 million puts changing hands.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThe uptick in call activity was enough to pull the CBOE single-session equity put/call volume ratio down from its lofty panic-induced levels. It fell to 0.66, which is a one-week low. Meanwhile, the 10-day moving average held firm at its highest reading of the year at 0.69.Options activity was a mixed bag on Wednesday (Options traders zeroed in on analyst actions yesterday). Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO) jumped following a robust earnings report and solid forward guidance. Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) benefited from Warren Buffet revealing the size of his stake. Finally, Boeing (NYSE:BA) scored its third up day in a row.Let's take a closer look: Cisco Systems (CSCO)Cisco Systems surged 6.66% on the back of strong earnings. For its fiscal third quarter, the technology conglomerate raked in earnings-per-share of 78 cents on revenue of $12.96 billion. Both metrics topped analyst estimates of 77 cents and $12.89 billion, respectively. * 10 Stocks to Sell Before They Tank Your Portfolio Its revenue forecast for the next quarter was also robust, adding to the excitement surrounding the event. Cisco expects 4.5% to 6.5% revenue growth, handily beating analyst calls for 3.5% growth.The sharp rally carried CSCO stock back above its 20-day and 50-day moving averages, effectively healing all the damage inflicted during the recent market temper tantrum in a single session. It now sits within striking distance of its 52-week high of $57.53. With solid sales growth at its back, CSCO shares should be viewed as a buy into any weakness this quarter.On the options trading front, earnings enthusiasm spurred call demand. Activity lifted to 305% of the average daily volume, with 193,495 total contracts traded; 68% of the trading came from call options alone.With the uncertainty of earnings now in the rearview mirror, sellers slammed implied volatility down to 27% or the 22nd percentile of its one-year range. Premiums are now pricing in daily moves of 77 cents or 1.4%. Amazon (AMZN)Warren Buffet surprised the Street recently when he revealed his flagship Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.A, NYSE:BRK.B) was buying shares of Amazon. On Wednesday, in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, he finally revealed the size of the purchase: 483,300 shares.Based on Thursday's closing price that pegs the value of his investment at $921.9 million.AMZN stock scored its third up day, rising 2% amid a comeback in the tech sector. This week's successful defense of the rising 50-day moving average confirmed that dip buyers are still alive and well. With the bounce, $1,815 has established itself as the crucial support zone to watch. As long as we remain above it, the path of least resistance is higher.As far as options trading goes, calls outpaced puts by a slim margin accounting for 56% of the total. Activity ticked higher to 130% of the average daily volume, with 245,923 total contracts traded. * Top 7 Dow Jones Stocks of 2019 -- So Far Implied volatility sunk to 25% placing it at the 25th percentile of its one-year range. The expected daily move is now $28.23 or 1.5%. Boeing (BA)Boeing shares finally achieved liftoff, but with overhead resistance looming large it's bound to be a short flight. Yesterday's 2.4% climb marked its third up day in a row and recovered some of the ground lost during last week's nasty breakdown.The $362 area was a significant support level on the way down, and I fully expect it to prove stiff resistance moving forward. This run-up smells like a dead-cat bounce.Nonetheless, yesterday's jump was enough to create a surge in options trading. Speculators favored calls almost 2 to 1 over puts. Total activity grew to 109% of the average daily volume, with 118,273 contracts traded.Meanwhile, on the implied volatility front, the reading fell to 27% which lands it at the 26th percentile of its one-year range. Premiums are now pricing in daily moves of $6.12 or 1.7%.As of this writing, Tyler Craig didn't hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
