Earlier, Wall Street analysts predicted Amazon stock prices to rise to $3 thousand. The increase in value is due to increased demand for Amazon’s e-commerce and cloud computing services.

It was previously reported that the Amazon brand was valued at $415.9 billion. At the same time, the aggregate value of the world’s leading brands grew by 5.9%, despite the economic and social consequences of COVID-19, and reached $ 5 trillion, which is equivalent to the annual GDP of Japan.
