Its shame how people live in denial of losing their investment. Game over, cut your loses before it goes down further. You can always pick few up when company come up with new business plan. NEXT QUARTER WILL BE WORSE for SPLS. Who knows they might suspend dividends. Play with your profit if you dont want to cut ur loses. GL
Question, amazon has been operating a break even to get revenue. What do you think will happen when they raise prices to actually make a profit? and when they have to pay sales tax in every state.. coming very soon?
My view is that Amazon will lose a significant amount of market share and most likely will not be able to compete with staples.office.max combined online, same day shipping. I can't imagine that businesses like the multiple shipments they get with amazon orders of products.
It's a very good question. Personally I think the stock gets crushed. It is one of the most overvalued companies out there right now as it is. However, SPSL is very profitable compared to AMZN overall sales right now. That is why I think they would be better off acquiring them instead of going toe-to-toe.
To answer your second question, not only do companies not like getting multiple packages & shipments for an order, they down right HATE it. AMZN isn't going to be rewarded mega Fortune 500 contracts anytime soon the way it is operated now which why they will need to make some drastic changes if they are serious about competing in the OS segment.
Why would Amzn will buy spls, amn has better business structure then spls. Secondly if amzn want cheap stores to buy office depot is 10 times less then spls. Maybe in future when dust settles down some other company might look into spls at the price of $5 and under. IMO
