Amazon Posts Second Quarterly Loss But Jumps On Revenue

Amazon shares goes up more than 13% in afterhours trading on Thursday This happens after the company reported better-than-expected second-quarter revenue and gave an optimistic outlook

Amazon said it expected to return to double-digit quarterly revenue growth now that the year-on-year comparisons with the coronavirus pandemic-affected periods in 2020 and 2021 had passed 

Amazon said it expects to post third-quarter revenue between $125 billion and $130 billion, representing growth of 13% to 17%. Analysts were expecting sales of $126.4 billion,

Strong performance from its Amazon Web Services cloud business and its fast-growing advertising arm were credited for the better than expected revenues.
