    Short Simply Don't Get The Implications of the Walmart Move

    Anyway you cut it nem, this is not good for Amazon. Walmart knows a thing or two about moving product and since they are in all 50 states and 26 countries - this is not good news. Folks want to touch this thing and without Walmart and Target putting on their floors amazon market share will certainly stay in the single digits and Christmas sales will be lack luster.

    • "Walmart knows a thing or two about moving product and since they are in all 50 states and 26 countries - this is not good news."

      Why not? It was good news 15 years ago when Walmart could do nothing to blunt Amazon huge success when it was a company of a fraction of the size it is today so 15 years later it should be 15 times as much the good news it was back then. Walmart will not be able to stop Amazon shorts from being steamrolled over and over.

      "Folks want to touch this thing and without Walmart and Target putting on their floors."

      No, they want to buy things conveniently without waiting hours for a parking spot and in check out lines. Only unemployed shorts have the luxury of standing all day in lines.
