    AMZN lslashes prices on AWS ... another short signial

    You don;t lower prices on your growth & margin driver if you aren;t having growth issues. Not a good sign for AMZN web services. If this part of their business doesn;t maintain a massive growth rate, their margins are in big time trouble.

    • it is taken as bullish by the WS community. Everytime AMZm loweres prices in anything, it's thought to be bullish as today's bottom line numbers don't matter. I would think this price slashing in AWS is no different. Hedge fund performance chasing such as Soros funds is the reason AMZN is going parabolic here. Those funds couldn't care less what AMZN earns, as long as they can move the stock price up and lock in gains. Why else would a fund like Soros have been buying into this 4th qtr? I'm sure other funds are doing the same.

        I hope you can see where this ultimately leads, and it won't be pretty. Also "locking in gains" by definition means selling. When more hedge funds decide to lock in gains than performance chase by adding to positions this will reverse in spectacular fashion.
