Amazon could hit $1 trillion in market cap in the next 12 to 18 months, analyst Dan Ives said Monday.
The GBH Insights analyst raised the price target for the e-commerce giant to $1,850 from $1,500.
"The Prime membership moat that [CEO Jeff] Bezos & Co. have built is gaining further steam in the field, and the Amazon 'flywheel effect' is further playing out globally among consumers," Ives said in a note.
"The Bezos strategic path, both on the consumer and enterprise fronts, [is] still in the middle innings of playing out and Amazon remains a 'green light' name to own at these levels," he said.
Amazon's "1-2 punch" of consumer retail growth and Amazon Web Services — combined with Whole Foods tailwinds and a move into health care — could push the company past the milestone, Ives said.
