Along with all other market cap weighted indexes have been stuffed thoroughly with float scams... In AMZN's case, collusion between certain growth fund managers and quants has taken this up from 220 in Oct 2012 to 370 on declining fundamentals by float jam option scalping (wouldn't have been possible without our friendly infinite leverage boys and their QE...)
Pigs at absurd valuations have been dumped on the general investing public / retail through market cap weighted passive index stuffing. The reality is that the LC value stocks have been hammered in exactly the opposite direction in an extended anti-fundamental rebalancing pain trade made possible by abuse of QE flow...
It is glorified theft and it is destabilizing. It has created absolutely enormous internal imbalance within the market. As soon as they cannot stuff any more, the float scams will fall hard and index selling will create a vicious circle.
AMZN is losing this quarter's battle so Cap'nSandsCrew better get to work. AAPL has held even with Scamazon. Google has significantly outperformed and FB has become the stuffing of choice.
When rises in market cap fly in the face of fundamentals, eventually the scam falls apart. This one MIGHT make it into Q2, but it will implode this year and those behind it (and all the Scamalysts and their pumpgrades) will have plenty of explaining to do.

" If your kid gets married and is starting a family, the only advice you need give is blah, blah, blah..."
... is just bet 100% of your savings shorting Amazon on the so extensively researched and unbiased basis of "not surprised if $35" and you'll never have to worry about putting kids through college or saving for retirement.
The whole problem with being an idiot short is that you never realize how idiotic your notions about markets really sound or are for the reason you are an idiot in the first place.
So maybe the YMB police deleted the post because I said deposits can/will be used for bail ins or have capital controls placed on them. let's test...
It seems that YMB now longer like posts that advocate exchanging float scam currency for gold (might have been the part where I explained why physical cash is very important...).
Reality is that gold is very cheap priced on CB assets while AMZN and float scams are still very expensive. Physical cash and gold will prove to be a better performing (and far less risky) portfolio than owning stocks.
"Sybil - Since November!"
Dont quit your job unless it involvez buying or selling anything. If it involvez buying or selling then quit immediately - You do not know how to buy and sell.
Its understandable, if you are not philjoe, then your genetically related. Both of you have an extra chromosom
"Sybil: "Gawd dam that waz a great week for sybby!!!" "
Thats you.... Do you have any idea how much you lost for 2013? Of course not - you either dont bet , or the amount of money you put day trading and losing 70% of one $20-80 weekly optionz contract at a time - insignificant - so insignificant
"Sybil is ecstatic after making 10% in a week"
29% in a week - sybs made 29%, geegee..
"And that's after losing 25% in 2013. She is still 17.50% in the red."
Last year - written down book closed ; 25% . new year started JAN 1, but With average position short pricez 50-300% higher over the same period last year
"Like all other shorts here, her goal has changed from making money to breaking-even. Stoopit."
No- actually sybby stated financial goalz - its more in the neighorhood of 7-10x over the next 6 yearz of sybs existing gun powder. In another 0-6 weeks sybs will be 'even' and positioned to make much more then break even with last year
"A few more gusts against her and she'll be history"
You call your method of not surprised if 35 any more unbiased or extensive? Sounds more like the pot calling the kettle black. If a target of 35 came out of 35 tomorrow you and all the other shorts would be singing a different tune. UBS came out with a $375 target when the stock was at $349 so it looks like the proof is in the pudding.
Sybil: "Gawd dam that waz a great week for sybby!!!"
Sybil is ecstatic after making 10% in a week.
And that's after losing 25% in 2013.
She is still 17.50% in the red.
Like all other shorts here, her goal has changed from making money to breaking-even. Stoopit.
A few more gusts against her and she'll be history.
Nope, and hey MY CCJ short actually paid off, though I'm down 29% for the year, so we are about even in our stupidly...
If it's any help I'm canceling my margin account on Monday, can't let day trading the best of me.
Cash: I'm not giving sales presentations... It's anonymous and not looking for capital or partners. Just trying to encourage people who want to invest to look at alternatives. I agree that the moral hazard on WS is epic, which is why main street will want scalps this time. Having said that, we are essentially now positioned for max pain for the only adjustment that can balance global flows and end the vicious spiral in the global economy. The system will come back into balance and all US consumer stocks will get crushed, including this one.
Nobody that tradez az badly az this idiot doez with this new a handle would still be alive even with a 3-month old handle... The newness of the handle , coupled with the idiotic posts everyone of which iz unmistakably a huge losing bet relative to hiz puny cash gun powder just dont add up with the level of margin this phvckhead claimz to trade at.
Philjoe haz been suspiciously absent while sybby iz cleaning up. And Philjoe haz been known to be VERY determined to target and bait sybil by direct engagement with a VARIETY of mysterious handlez ('amychristine' probably being the trickiest one to spot). Now we have this idiot 'koyota' denouncing sybby's phat cake in the same philjoe fashion .
Philjoe, iz this you ? We miss you buddy - so if it iz you can come out of hiding now, dont be embarrassed.
People post on this boards because of trading. u give them sales presentations, but people don't invest in something they don't understand anyway. he is right, this is traders market and i add its been this way since mid 2012. every gap gets filled by them have u noticed. they don't care about valuations since they came with weekly option casinos. no one cares about anything.
It's also weird stock dropping, 3 shares don't count for anything:
19:59 $ 373.26 3
18:53 $ 373.74 7,103
18:42 $ 373.74 8,188

is more representative, we shall see come Monday though! one things's for sure you are in this for longer then I am! ^_^,
You are bloody crazy, there is no way someone with your attitude + writing skills could somehow get ahold(besides inheritance) of a few million dollars.
Geegee iz right... Sybby just cant resist stamping out repliez to idiots - better close down the board, grab a quick late day nap, and be ready for tonight. Geegee iz gonna miss sybby while sybs out an about on a care free weekend... Sybby iz gonna take a drop by the marina and maybe take the boat out.
There are plenty of reasonably valued investments in the real economy. Simply cash out of AMZNopoly money (or any float scam) and get to cash where you can invest the real world private businesses that aren't valued on CB balance sheets. I've secured global rights to foundational MEMS IP (with no counterparty risk and 10-20 years to expiration) for a very modest amount of capital. Now, TI and ADI, amongst others, are interested in working with my co-founder to develop new products based on it and license it. Reality is that domestic, knowledge based productive assets are wildly undervalued because the Street is all about consumer facing float scams and it cascades backward into VC/PE funding.
It will get interesting when our creditors who also have a large share of global trade decide to move away from the dollar... Consumers are going to have a tough time paying for all the much more expensive foreign goods. But, those of us who have developed globally protected technology and manufacturing solutions will enjoy the easier export markets.
Everyone is assuming the dollar will strengthen when TSHTF. Only with respect to the even bigger train wrecks (Japan and EU). We are at an inflection in global influence and our adversaries have been far more farsighted in planning for it than we have because our planning is dictated by which direction the wind blows in the capital markets...
