i guess the subject header to this email couldn't be more appropriate. "estimate of earnings growth" What happened to the estimate two years ago that AMZN would be earning $4.95 a share in 2011? what happened was they can't and wont' deliver promised earnings. They never have. 15 years in the making and they make .44 a quarter. Where are these earnings going to come from? This company is one giant pass through. buck in buck out.
