The surge comes as the Seattle-based company announced its third-quarter earnings, blowing Wall Street's expectations out of the water and causing its stock to leap 7.7%, to $1,045 per share in after-hours trading.
Although AWS has continued to be a massive profit driver, accounting for almost 10% of total revenue in Q3, sales growth for the cloud service actually slowed down for the eighth straight quarter. Q3 net income was $256 million or 52 cents per diluted share, which was roughly flat compared to the year-ago period but demolished the 3 cents-per-share Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S analyst expectation cited by Reuters. But this included $1.3 billion in sales from Whole Foods Market.
O'Shea also noted revenue growth and operating income at AWS "more than offset" the loss Amazon took on through investments in its worldwide business. Analysts had predicted just over $42 billion in revenue.

For the first time, Amazon broke its sales out for its business of online retail and for physical bookstores as well as its Whole Foods stores.
(Amazon often chooses to reinvest in operations, and many predicted the company would do so this quarter, as well.) Even more heartening, it offered a rosier outlook for the fourth quarter and says it expects sales to come in between $56 billion and $60.5 billion, or between 28% and 38%.
Amazon's third-quarter revenue increased 34% year over year. Operating income from e-commerce sales in North America was $112 million. "Of those services, Subscriptions (which includes Prime) and Other (which includes advertising) are its fastest-growing businesses". But Amazon Web Services' operating income was close to $1.2 billion, up from $861 million in the year-ago quarter. GlobalData Retail's Saunders said his firm sees Prime "as a critical tool to extend Amazon's customer reach, gather customer data, and to lock in loyalty in an increasingly fickle marketplace". Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said customers have now purchased "tens of millions of Alexa-enabled devices".
"With thousands of developers and hardware makers building new Alexa skills and devices, the Alexa experience will continue to get even better". The launch of new services like Amazon's unlimited music service in several European countries, and the rollout of Alexa services to India and Japan, have all taken their toll on the cost line. That pushed operating income, including $21 million from Whole Foods Market, down 40% to $347 million. The midpoint of Amazon's guidance for that period now sits at $68 billion, including a $4.4 billion Whole Foods contribution.
