We recently published a list of the Jim Cramer is Recommending These 10 Stocks in June. Since Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN) ranks 1st in the list, it deserves a deeper look.

Jim Cramer in a latest program talked about the effect of inflation on US consumers and discussed how it’s impacting the Haves and the Have Nots. Cramer said while everyone is feeling the “pinch of inflation,” the Have Nots are feeling a “heck of a lot more” than the Haves.  Cramer said that the difference between these two classes of consumers is very important for investment portfolios. He complained that many retailers don’t even know their consumers and that’s why they have a totally different reading of the current economic situation and its effects on consumers. Cramer criticized those who aren’t careful about the differences between consumers and use “the consumer” as a blanket term.

Cramer talked about several retail companies and how they are directly feeling the effects of inflation as consumers cut back on spending. The CNBC host said that Americans are making tough choices because of rising prices but we usually don’t talk about it.

Jim Cramer said that many strategists demand several rate cuts because “they want stocks higher.”

“I want higher stock prices too but if we get multiple rate cuts and inflation comes roaring back, it’s the Have Nots that will get hurt.”

Jay Powell Is Worried About Tens of Millions of People With Almost Nothing in the Bank, Cramer Says

Jim Cramer said that while many people won’t be happy to see a strong jobs report (because that decreases the chances of rate cuts), they should keep in mind the tough situation the Federal Reserve is in.

“Jay Powell isn’t worried about those of us with big portfolios. He’s worried about the tens of millions of people with almost nothing in the bank.”

In a recent program, Jim Cramer said that he thinks Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN) has a “lot of room to go higher.” Cramer is bullish on Amazon.com Inc’s (NASDAQ:AMZN) advertising business. He also praised the company’s AWS business and said Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN) is “back with a great growth number.”

AWS is indeed growing rapidly. AWS operating margins crossed 37% during the first quarter. AWS operating margins have now came in more than 30% for the past five straight quarters. Amazon.com Inc’s (NASDAQ:AMZN) revenue in the first quarter jumped 12.5% YoY and its adjusted EPS more than tripled. Revenue in North America and International segments grew as well. Analysts believe digital ads is another strong revenue stream for Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN), with revenue from the segment increasing 24% YoY to $11.8 billion in the first quarter.

Baron Fifth Avenue Growth Fund stated the following regarding Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) in its first quarter 2024 investor letter:

Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) is the world’s largest retailer and cloud services provider. Shares increased 18.7% on quarterly results that exceeded consensus expectations, with revenue growth of 13% year-over-year and operating margins of 7.8% (up from 1.8% a year ago). We believe that Amazon is well positioned in the short to medium term to continue improving its core North American margins, which have reached 6.1% in the fourth quarter, the seventh straight quarter of margin improvement and an overall improvement of 800bps. Amazon has been rearchitecting its fulfillment network, improving efficiency, reducing cost-to-serve and accelerating delivery speeds thanks to initiatives such as regionalization, with the number of items delivered during the same day or overnight increasing by nearly 70% year-over-year. Reducing the cost to serve also enables Amazon to sell lower priced items and expand its addressable market to everyday purchases. Additionally, Amazon continues to benefit from its fast-growing, margin-accretive advertising business winning market share in digital advertising thanks to its structural advantages of a closed loop system, which enables a deterministic calculation of Return on Ad Spending. We also believe that e-commerce still has long duration growth ahead as it still accounts for less than 15% of retail. Similarly, Amazon’s cloud service, AWS, remains relatively early in its S-curve with cloud representing around 13% of worldwide IT spending13 incremental tailwinds across the three layers of the GenAI stack – infrastructure with NVIDIA’s own AI chips (Trainium and Inferentia) as well as with its offering of NVIDIA chips, platform (Bedrock), and applications (first and third party).”
