The Nasdaq is poised to open higher following Amazon’s strong fourth-quarter earnings report — and more in Friday’s stock market recap.
While Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) narrowly missed on revenue estimates, it crushed earnings, delivering $5.80 per share versus expectations of $3.57.
Amazon’s strong fourth quarter was largely thanks to its cloud business, as well as its investment in electric vehicle manufacturer Rivian Automotive Inc. (Nasdaq: RIVN), where it reported almost a $12 billion gain.
Its strength helped pull the Nasdaq up Friday morning, following a drop on Thursday due to Facebook’s dismal report.
