On Friday, Amazon shares rose nearly 8% after the e-commerce heavyweight company reported reported stronger-than-expected sales in the holiday quarter, and its profitable cloud business saw early gains thanks to AI-powered features.

They grew more than 80% last year amid broader price increases on technology stocks and outperformed the benchmark S&P 500 index.
