E-commerce and cloud-storage giant Amazon has been one of the biggest beneficiaries of changing consumer behavior during the COVID-19 pandemic. Its sales jumped 35% to more than $260 billion in the first nine months of 2020, as people stopped going to stores and spent more online. The company’s market-leading cloud-computing division, Amazon Web Services, has also benefited in 2020 as the hosting platform for everything from Netflix to Zoom.
