Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN-Q) shares slid on Thursday as a research note by Goldman Sachs suggested that the online retailer's sales growth in the current holiday quarter could miss Wall Street expectations.

Goldman in a note from Wednesday said Amazon has typically bested overall online sales growth by 23 points. That would suggest a 38-percent jump this season, below the 40-percent increase Wall Street expects Goldman wrote.

Earlier this week, data firm comScore said U.S. e-commerce sales in the first 8 weeks of the November and December holiday season rose 15 percent compared to the year-earlier period.

Separately, Amazon said on Thursday it has sold more than 1 million Kindle e-reader and tablet devices per week this month.
