Calling Amazon a “great company,” Munster said Deepwater, a fund management firm he co-founded, does not own Amazon stock. There are other companies to own to gain outperformance, he added.
He, however, sees things changing by the middle of the year. “What keeps me up at night not owning AMZN: The company’s growth rates should start to improve in the back half of this year,” he said.

“This is a setup for the stock to act better mid this year,” he added.
Munster also delved into the weak AWS performance. Management commentary that the cloud business is tracking down 500 basis points in April suggests 11% growth for AWS in the June quarter, the tech analyst said. This would mean the company could undershoot the Street estimate for 11% growth, he added.
“If that holds for the quarter, AWS growth will slow for 7 consecutive quarters.”
In premarket trading on Friday, Amazon shares shed 1.66% to $108, according to Benzinga Pro data
