    Earnings (again)

    Here we go again

    Earnings from AMZN started out at the beginning of this
    quarter at $0.34 and has slowly been reduced over the
    last three month downward to $0.09.
    Expected sales stood at $16.84 B stands now at $16.16 B

    So folks, load up tomorrow with AMZN, this stock
    can do no wrong, no matter what they may produce.

    But remember that tax collection on every item sold
    is just around the corner

    Just a little humor folks

    • latest revision to the earnings
      posted #$%$09 yesterday revised DOWN to $.07 this morning

    • Even better - 2 years ago (Q1 2011) Analyst consensus for AMZN earnings in 2013 Q1 was for $1.25. They had $5.45 for the full 2013!!! (source: E*Trade)

      Now consensus calls for $0.09 in Q1 and only $1.47 for full year. Now that's progress.

      Over that time frame stock has moved from $175 to $270 on a 73% decline in actual to predicted EPS.

      That $5.45 on $175 was 2-YR FWD P/E of 32.

      Today 2-YR FWD P/E is even higher @ 39 that on terrible performance ($270 with 2015 EPS consesus of $6.95)
