eBay's revenue miss and light Q2 guidance are taking a toll on Amazon (AMZN -3.6%), which delivers its own Q2 report in 7 days. eBay's earnings call remarks about European weakness probably aren't going over well either, given Amazon's strong exposure to the continent. Yesterday, Nomura raised its PT on Amazon to $315 from $300, albeit while respectively cutting its 2013 and 2014 EPS estimates to $1.67 and $3.44. The firm is now modeling higher D&A (heavily tied to AWS capex) and fulfillment expenses, but also higher revenue and gross margin.
