Amazon (AMZN +0.7%) reports 51% growth in orders on its peak selling day (Dec. 14), and a 25% increase in shipments, and notes Kindle book sales on Christmas Day were greater than physical book sales for the first time ever. "AMZN likely had another very strong holiday season, partly fueled by the Kindle, and we believe the stock could outperform in the very near-term in likely thin overall holiday trading," Barclays says.
