This POS will trade under 260 prior to earning report. Smells like a pump and dump. There was zero interest @ 259 on Friday, but the Village Idiots must buy today @ 269? Once 4th quarter number hits the tape, the EPS for 2013 will again be reduced, just like in years past.
No company in the history of the market can compete with tech titans (like GOOG, AAPL, MSFT, ORCL, IBM, etc) on all fronts and win.
who cares if earnings are reduced. they were reduced from growing on $2.52 peak earnings to coming in almost negative into 2012 and the stock is still skying: earnings mean little to AMZN stocks: it's in the hands of WS support , earnings or no earnings.
