    Amazon's stock slips after President Trump tweet that company is doing 'great damage'

    Shares of Amazon.com Inc. slipped 0.3% in premarket trade Wednesday, but pared earlier losses, after President Donald Trump tweeted that the e-commerce giant was "doing great damage to tax paying retailers." The stock had fallen as much as 0.9% within a few minutes after the tweet, which went out at 6:12 a.m. ET. Separately, analyst Youssef Squali at SunTrust Robinson Humphrey initiated coverage of Amazon with a buy rating and $1,220 stock price target, which was 24% above Tuesday's closing price of $982.74. Squali said that while the stock isn't cheap on a relative basis, it is "fundamentally compelling" as it dominates the e-commerce space with about 40% market share. He said with the impending acquisition of Whole Foods Market Inc. , Amazon is also positioning itself as a major player in groceries. "Combined with a growing wave of physical store closings, rise of online private labels and strengthening of its logistics network, this move should help Amazon accelerate the pace of disruption of retail to gain share both offline and online," Squali wrote in a note to clients.
