Amazon (AMZN) now +9.3% AH in spite of its Q4 miss and light Q1 guidance. The earnings call (live blog) featured pointed questions about slowing paid unit growth (32% Y/Y vs 39% in Q3), but also positive comments about gross margin, which rose 340 bps Y/Y 24.1% (up from Q3's 180 bps increase). The fact 3rd-party sales accounted for 39% of paid units (up from 36% a year ago) helped, as did a 67% Y/Y increase in "Other" North American revenue (dominated by AWS) to $769M. Active customer accounts surpassed 200M (up from Q3's 188M). EBAY +0.7%.

    This latest miss of WS estimates with declining earnings and EPS will rapidly push the stock price above the $300 resistance level, which will trigger a strong buy signal and another rally that could potentially get the stock to test the $350 level before end of Feb. Both institutional and retail investors will run over each other to get in. Time to buy naked weekly calls to cash in big time.
