Current Price: $113.00
Current Value: $11.18
AMZN has a current Value of $11.18 per share; compared to a Price of $113.00 per share, this stock is currently overvalued. Value is computed from forecasted earnings per share, forecasted earnings growth, profitability, interest, and inflation rates.
RV is an indicator of long-term price appreciation potential. AMZN has an RV of 0.17, which is very poor on a scale of 0.00 to 2.00. This indicator is far superior to a simple comparison of Price and Value because it is computed from an analysis of projected price appreciation three years out, AAA Corporate Bond Rates, and risk.
SAFETY (Relative Safety/RS)
RS is an indicator of risk. AMZN has an RS of 1.13, which is good on a scale of 0.00 to 2.00. RS is computed from an analysis of the consistency and predictability of a company's financial performance, debt to equity ratio, sales volume, business longevity, price volatility and other factors.
TIMING (Relative Timing/RT)
RT analyzes a stock's price trend. AMZN has a Relative Timing of 0.66, which is poor on a scale of 0.00 to 2.00. RT is computed from an analysis of the direction, magnitude, and dynamics of a stock's price movements day-over-day, week-over-week, quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year. If a trend dissipates, RT will gravitate toward 1.00.
OVERALL RATING (Value-Safety-Timing/VST)
VST is the master indicator for ranking every stock in the VectorVest database. AMZN has a VST rating of 0.78, which is poor on a scale of 0.00 to 2.00. VST is computed from the square root of a weighted sum of the squares of RV, RS, and RT. Stocks with the highest VST ratings have the best combinations of Value, Safety and Timing.
STOP (Stop-Price)
Stop Price: $111.59
Stop is an indicator of when to sell a position. AMZN has a Stop of $111.59 per share. A stock's Stop is computed from a 13 week moving average of its closing prices, and is fine-tuned according to the stock's fundamentals.
CI (Comfort Index)
CI is an indicator which reflects a stock's ability to resist severe and/or lengthy price declines. AMZN has a CI rating of 0.45, which is very poor on a scale of 0.00 to 2.00. CI is based solely upon a stock's long-term price history.

GRT (Earnings Growth Rate): GRT reflects a company's one to three year forecasted earnings growth rate in percent per year. AMZN has a forecasted Earnings Growth Rate of 1.00 %, which VectorVest considers to be poor.

EPS (Earnings per Share): EPS stands for leading 12 months Earnings Per Share. AMZN has a forecasted EPS of $2.24 per share. VectorVest determines this forecast from a combination of recent earnings performance and traditional fiscal and/or calendar year earnings forecasts.

P/E (Price to Earnings Ratio): P/E shows the dollars required to buy one dollar of earnings. AMZN has a P/E of 50.45. The average P/E of all the stocks in the VectorVest database is 36.36.

EY (Earnings Yield): EY reflects earnings per share as a percent of Price. AMZN has an EY of 1.98 %. This is below the current average of 2.75 % for all the stocks in the VectorVest database.

GPE (Growth to P/E Ratio):  AMZN has a GPE rating of 0.02. This stock, with a GPE less than 1.00, is commonly considered to be overvalued.

DIV (Dividend):   VectorVest reports annual, regular, cash dividends as indicated by the most recent payments. Special distributions, one-time payments, stock dividends, etc., are not generally included in DIV. AMZN does not pay a dividend.

DY (Dividend Yield): DY reflects dividend per share as a percent of Price. AMZN does not pay a dividend, so it does not have a Dividend Yield rating. DY equals 100 x (DIV/Price). It is useful to compare DY with EY. If DY is not significantly lower than EY, the dividend payment may be in jeopardy.

DS (Dividend Safety): DS is an indicator of the assurance that regular cash dividends will be declared and paid at current or at higher rates for the foreseeable future. AMZN does not pay a dividend, so it does not have a Dividend Safety rating. Stocks with DS values above 75 typically have RS values well above 1.00 and EY levels that are much higher than DY.

DG (Dividend Growth Rate): Dividend Growth is a forecasted annual growth rate of a company's dividend based on historical dividend payments and dividend predictability. It is a subtle yet important indicator of a company's financial performance. It also provides some insight into the board's outlook on the company's ability to increase earnings. AMZN does not pay a dividend, so it does not have a Dividend Growth rating.

YSG (YSG-Vector): YSG is an indicator which combines DY, DS and DG into a single value, and allows direct comparison of all dividend-paying stocks in the database. AMZN does not pay a dividend, so it does not have a YSG rating. Stocks with the highest YSG values have the best combinations of Dividend Yield, Safety and Growth. These are the stocks to buy for somewhat above current income and long-term growth.
