Amazon.com Inc. is expected to report another solid financial period when it reports third-quarter earnings after the market closes Thursday, fueled by stronger e-commerce sales and increased appetite for its cloud-computing service, Amazon Web Services.

Total Amazon AMZN, +2.33% revenue is expected to rise by 29% year-over-year, with U.S. e-commerce sales increasing by 16% and AWS revenues rising by 52%, according to Cantor Fitzgerald, which recently raised its price target on Amazon shares to $1,000.

“Our checks show healthy double-digit pace of growth in e-commerce and we view Amazon as one of the prime beneficiaries of such a trend,” Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Youssef Squali said in a note to clients Monday.
