Amazon Return on Average Assets are quite stable at the moment as compared to the past year. The company's current value of Return on Average Assets is estimated at 9.71. Return on Average Equity is expected to rise to 31.08 this year, although the value of Return on Investment will most likely fall to 13.54. Amazon Net Current Assets as percentage of Total Assets are quite stable at the moment as compared to the past year. The company's current value of Net Current Assets as percentage of Total Assets is estimated at 5.69. Asset Turnover is expected to rise to 1.69 this year, although the value of Goodwill and Intangible Assets will most likely fall to about 12.9 B.
The company currently holds 48.74 B in liabilities with Debt to Equity (D/E) ratio of 1.2, which is about average as compared to similar companies. Amazon Inc has a current ratio of 0.92, indicating that it has a negative working capital and may not be able to pay financial obligations when due. Debt can assist Amazon until it has trouble settling it off, either with new capital or with free cash flow. So, Amazon's shareholders could walk away with nothing if the company can't fulfill its legal obligations to repay debt. However, a more frequent occurrence is when companies like Amazon Inc sell additional shares at bargain prices, diluting existing shareholders. Debt, in this case, can be an excellent and much better tool for Amazon to invest in growth at high rates of return. When we think about Amazon's use of debt, we should always consider it together with cash and equity.

Pair trading also minimizes risk from directional movements in the market. For example, if an entire industry or sector drops because of unexpected headlines, the short position in Amazon will appreciate offsetting losses from the drop in the long position's value.

So, investors can't just sell and buy back Amazon - that would be a violation of the tax code under the "wash sale" rule, and this is why you need to find a similar enough asset and use the proceeds from selling Amazon Inc to buy it.

This measure is expressed in what is known as the correlation coefficient, which ranges between -1 and +1. A perfect positive correlation (i.e., a correlation coefficient of +1) implies that as Amazon moves, either up or down, the other security will move in the same direction. Alternatively, perfect negative correlation means that if Amazon Inc moves in either direction, the perfectly negatively correlated security will move in the opposite direction. If the correlation is 0, the equities are not correlated; they are entirely random. A correlation greater than 0.8 is generally described as strong, whereas a correlation less than 0.5 is generally considered weak.
Correlation analysis and pair trading evaluation for Amazon can also be used as hedging techniques within a particular sector or industry or even over random equities to generate a better risk-adjusted return on your portfolios.

The market value of Amazon Inc is measured differently than its book value, which is the value of Amazon that is recorded on the company's balance sheet. Investors also form their own opinion of Amazon's value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is Amazon's true underlying value. Investors use various methods to calculate intrinsic value and buy a stock when its market value falls below its intrinsic value. Because Amazon's market value can be influenced by many factors that don't directly affect Amazon's underlying business (such as a pandemic or basic market pessimism), market value can vary widely from intrinsic value.
Please note, there is a significant difference between Amazon's value and its price as these two are different measures arrived at by different means. Investors typically determine Amazon value by looking at such factors as earnings, sales, fundamental and technical indicators, competition as well as analyst projections. However, Amazon's price is the amount at which it trades on the open market and represents the number that a seller and buyer find agreeable to each party.
