    Am I missing something here?

    Apple down $275 dollars since its $730 high based on low P/E, no debt and still with ;profit while Amazn has over 3000 P/E, with debt and losses. What am I missing here? Someone enlightens me please.

    • Amazon is a growth stock that is promising to be huge and *one day* make a ton of money. But that's the rub, Amazon is growing by spending everything it take in leaving nothing for profits. The question is: is that a good investment of funds? If it is, then down the road (1, 2, 5, 10yrs?), Amazon should be making tons of profit for its shareholders. On the other hand, if it needs to keep spending like this just to keep growing an undercutting the competition, then this is just Jeff Bezo's hobby, and shareholders are just funding his fun. I'm sitting it out as I think all companies of this size owe their shareholders some decent return, even if it means slowing growth, or raising prices slightly. Its too easy to just keep growing, but never making a dime. What happens to the stock if the growth falters? 50% drop? A true traders stock to play the market.

      Sentiment: Sell

    • you are missing Bezos. Apple needs to replace Cook, he doesn't cut it.
