UPDATE: Amazon buys back zero shares again, and stock keeps outperforming

2:38 pm ET February 1, 2019 (MarketWatch)
Print

Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) said in its 2018 annual report filing that although it can, it chose not to repurchase any of its shares during 2018. The e-commerce giant is cleared to spend up to $5 billion to repurchase shares, but hasn't bought back any stock since it spent $960 million worth in 2012. In addition, Amazon still has never paid a dividend. But before shareholders complain about the company not returning cash to shareholders--it has pledged to spend more on growing its business this year (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/amazon-will-spend-more-cash-in-2019-and-thats-a-good-thing-2019-02-01) than it did in 2018--consider that the stock continues to outperform Apple Inc. (AAPL), which spent over $70 billion on share repurchases in calendar 2018, including $8.2 billion in the December quarter (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/apple-buys-a-lot-of-stock-high-then-stops-buying-low-2019-01-31), and about $14 billion on dividends. Amazon's stock soared 28.4% in 2018, while Apple shares returned (including dividends) a negative 5.4%. In comparison, the S&P 500 fell 6.2% last year. In 2017, shares of Amazon ran up 56.0% and Apple returned 48.5%, while the S&P 500 climbed 19.4%.
