eCommerce giant Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) has been one of the most prolific growth stocks, gaining over 1000% in value in the past decade. Its tentacles are spread across multiple tech verticals, with a diversified business model that’s second to none. Moreover, its strategic expansion has proven incredibly rewarding for its shareholders, with AMZN stock outpacing broader market gains repeatedly throughout the past decade.

Though it’s known for its pioneering eCommerce business, its true profit engine has been its game-changing cloud computing service in Amazon Web Services (AWS).

In highlighting AWS’s contribution to Amazon’s success, the division’s revenues were up 13% year-over-year (YOY) to $24.2 billion in the fourth-quarter (Q4) of 2023, while the company’s total quarterly sales increased by 14% to $170 billion.

Moreover, there’s plenty that’s going for the business at this time, positioning it for robust gains ahead. It aims to achieve streaming profitability by the tail-end of this year with its powerful direct-to-consumer platforms of Disney+ and ESPN+.
