Earnings for the fiscal second quarter came in at $309.9 million (40 cents per share), compared to $261.6 million (34 cents per share) a year earlier.
Amazon.Com Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) shares surged nearly 15 percent. The world’s largest online retailer reported impressive first-quarter earnings after the closing bell. Net income for the quarter was $130 million (28 cents per share), compared to $201 million (44 cents per share) a year earlier. Although profits declined, the results beat expectations.
