Analysis of anisotropy of the arrival directions of galactic protons, helium, carbon and oxygen has been performed with the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer on the International Space Station. These results allow to investigate the origin of the spectral hardening observed by AMS in these cosmic ray species. The AMS results on the dipole anisotropy are presented along with the discussion of the implications of these measurements.
