Amazon does better than expected

Written by Nick Farrell

Looks like its Christmas will be OK

Online book seller Amazon managed to surprise the cocaine nose jobs of Wall Street with quarterly results that were much better than expected.

Amazon posted a narrower quarterly loss and grew sales by a better-than-expected 24 percent.

Amazon forecast sales of between $23.5 billion to $26.5 billion. Much of that growth came from its home market, where net sales leapt 31 percent to $10.3 billion as a faster delivery by a growing network of distribution centres drove customer demand, Amazon said. International sales also expanded 15 percent, up from 13 percent in the previous quarter.
