    Where are the downgrades and lowered price targets?

    Earnings and revenue estimates are being slahed. The only reason for the optimism last Q after terrible release was that gross margin (revenue less Cost of sales and fulfillment) went from 14.6% to 15.5% .. this pushed many analysts to think AMZN could get to 4% net margin some day. Well guess what, in Q3 GM dropped to 14.3% - even less than Q1 !!! Lets see - growth has slowed, margins are declining, R&D spending is inccreasing at a breakneck pace to produce products they are losing money on, looking at piles of depreciation and new employees they don't need .... wow a P/E of 20 sounds about right on $2 earning next year ... $40. just a matter of time before big money has to throw in the towel.

      Institutions will not start putting out downgrades on a stock they own 84% of. They will start selling off their positions then issue a downgrade. Iff anything they will do like oppenheimer and reiterate as outperform.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell
