  • The back-to-school shopping season has kicked off firmly, cooling some concerns about U.S. consumer stability, according to Bank of America Corp (NYSE:BAC), Bloomberg reports.

    Spending on school items, including college, will likely hit a record high of $111 billion in 2022, a 1% increase over last year, estimates National Retail Federation.

    BofA acknowledged the trend of consumers stocking up earlier this year as price-conscious shoppers look to lock in the best deals. While the shift would be conducive for July month, it will impact the month of August.

    The findings reflect resilient U.S. consumers despite surging inflation and recession concerns. Shoppers will likely spend a record amount this school year due to the higher prices and economic conditions, as per a Deloitte survey.

    Competition has also heated with Amazon.com Inc’s (NASDAQ: AMZN) midsummer Prime Day sale.

    Tigress Financial expressed bullishness in Amazon, citing ongoing momentum in Prime Membership, increasing traction with third-party sellers, strength in AWS, and growth and share price gains. 

    BofA acknowledged that consumers also shopped earlier during the past winter’s holiday season for better deals and to avoid delays due to supply-chain issues. Similar to 2021, e-commerce is also likely to play a vital role, BofA added. 

    Price Action: AMZN shares closed higher by 2.07% at $143.55 on Friday.
