Reiterating its overweight rating, Morgan Stanley raised the price target on the stock to $2,500 from $1,850, which would value the e-commerce giant at over $1.2 trillion.

Amazon shares were up 1.5% to 1,963.62 at 10:30 AM ET on Wednesday. The stock has rallied 65% so far this year, while the S&P 500 index is up just 8%.
