It?s hard for headline metrics to sum up everything you need to know about a company as big and varied as Amazon. Amazon?s online shopping revenue expanded by 12 percent, part of a trend of decelerating growth in this sector. On the other hand, Amazon Web Services (AWS) saw a spike of 49 percent, while Amazon?s subscription revenues jumped by an even more formidable 55 percent, representing six percent of Amazon?s total revenue. Other revenue sectors, driven largely by Amazon?s thriving ad sales, grew by a very impressive 129 percent.
