Shares of Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) are back above $1,000. As of early Wednesday, the online retailer was trading at $1,003.45, about $14 shy of its all-time intraday high reached in mid-June.
The gains come after Amazon's much-hyped Prime Day on July 11. The annual event offers significant discounts to Prime members in an effort to boost membership. Prime Day sales were up 60% compared to last year's event and even surpassed those for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Amazon's Echo Dot interactive speaker led the way with a seven-fold sales increase over last year's Prime Day.
