Warren Buffett doesn’t have many tech stocks, which is jarring for someone who has outperformed the stock market for so long, but he has plenty of Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) shares. This member of the Magnificent Seven is up 22% year-to-date and has doubled over the past five years.

The company posted solid top and bottom line results to start 2024. Q1 2024 net income more than tripled YOY while net sales were up 13% YOY. Domestic and international sales both maintained double-digit growth rates while Amazon Web Services’ growth accelerated.
