Technical analysis shows that AMZN may run up to $62 3/4 by sometime next week.... So $62 may be a good time to short AMZN and anywhere between $60 ~ $60 3/4 seems like a reasonable shorting range for a conservative shorter(it there is such a thing...)
JSlicker and others were way too early to short AMZN last week.
Any other tech analysis?
BTW, DO NOT rely too much on ta for your decision making...
My formula: 80% Fundamental Analysis, which tells me to short.
10% Technical Analysis, which tells me not to short at this time and price, and wait for a better price and graph...
and 10% praying hard, God tells me to short this baby!(just kidding)
With exceptions (story stocks being hyped, primarily), the market is rational. You will find a very high correlation between Cash Flow Return on Investment and Price/Earnings ratio and a fairly good correlation between average annual return on assets employed and the P/E ratio.
As I speculated in my previous message, I believe that Amazon.com is a good stock for long term investors who are willing to
build up their positions over time while enduring high volatility. Right now, the stock does seem to be overpriced and
speculative, since we can only see the Company from a bookseller framework. But long-term investors such as the Motley Fool Portfolio are
counting on the company to expand into new businesses as it builds on the value of its brand name (Amazon.com's most valuable
What price should we buy AMZN at? Some people pull out numbers from thin air like 20, 30, and 40... while others think that
62 3/16 is a good price. But what do these numbers really mean? The current stock price reflects a real optimism about the
future of the Company. But as we all know, the stock market is not a rational animal. I think to figure out where to buy, we have
to just watch the company and the stock closely. If you are confident about the future of this company (and I'm talking about
decades of future growth here), then just keep dollar cost averaging. But keep your eyes open -- things change very quickly in the
Good luck to all and it's good to see plenty of people who aren't just hypeing or ranting!
rbco, please dont take this personally but, you are a moron! Don't you understand sarcasm when you see it?.....my point is
clear to those who do. Valuation, based on P/S and earnings is ridiculous and the small float is the only thing keeping this up.
The real float will increase by 19 million shares this year as the insiders sell out. They do this 2 ways. By straight share
selling (probably coming after the earnings release) and by selling NAKED IN THE MONEY CALLS....ie. selling Feb 45 calls, take in
the premium and then get the stock called away from them at expiry. You will notice how at each expiration the 'float' will
increase...................anything else I can teach you?
Please dont take this the wrong way. Your posts are idiotic and offer no insight to this board. I'm sure you are a decent person, eventhough your posts portray you to be a jerk.
Everyone on WALL STREET is going to be recommending this stock. Just close your
eyes and BUY. You can NEVER lose. It's only 63 dollars a share. SO CHEAP. Only
1.5 BILLION dollar market cap! Sales are going to be OVER 100 million for last
year! Who cares about all the competition?! AMZN is now a superior brand name.
Who cares if BKS sells books cheaper, and gives you a nice place to stroll around and
get out of the house and enjoy the real world! REAL people BUY online and never
leave the house! 15 times P/S ratio is a BARGAIN...No earnings for the next 2 years
is IRRELEVANT as long as we keep buying and never sell!.....the float is only 3
million shares and the small investor controls it all! I am sure the insiders and venture
capitalists who funded AMZN will NEVER sell their 19 million shares to realize a
profit. They will ride it to 1000$. And so will we! WE will all be RICH. It is so EASY.
BUY AMZN and retire in 2 years...................;^)
Come on everyone! It just downticked 1/8!!! Where was your bid?! 1000 dollars in 2
years is a SURE THING....Forget about normal valuations! This is different! This is
AMZN. Everyone will buy the stock and Wall Street will ALWAYS recommend it. If
you just buy and hold there will never be any stock to sell! The insiders will NEVER
sell their 19 million shares! We control the market with our 3 million share float! We
will drive it to 1000$ or more! Call your friends, mortgage the house , break out the
kids college fund! This is a SURE THING!!!................;^)
I guess I was wrong. Silly to ever sell short AMZN. Books are the most valuable asset
in the world and I personally will spare no expense until I have bought every book
AMZN has for sale. Just keep buying the stock. As long as we keep buying the stock
it will ALWAYS go up. Nothing on planet earth is better than AMZN. 300 dollars by
yearend is a sure thing. 700$ by next year. Even that may be too conservative. Since
noone will ever sell the stock (insiders will NEVER realize their profits) there will be no
way this stock can ever come back down. Soon everyone will hear about this
phenomenon and the stock will be in even more demand. AND NOONE WILL
SELL! And soon everyone on the planet will be on the internet buying everybook they
ever wanted only from AMZN. The stock is sure to go to 1000 $ or higher by 2001.
This is early retirement time for all the longs ......hang on we are all gonna be
I agree with your post #238, and i
also sold AMZN at around $60 a share.
I most definitely want to own this
company again in the future. When
would you Repurchase AMZN(at
what price, when?)
Thanks for your informed view.
Not to harsh at all. Give me some time to do some in depth research and i will reply back with my answer. BTW, Jim Rogers,
who I follow closely and was surprised to see how similar are portfolios are this year, has been down on all these types of
stocks for years, remeber he was short intel at 30. I believe what Jim does is balance his portfolios ( just as i do). If he is
wrong on 20 % of his picks, he will do just fine. If I (and my clients for that matter) am wrong on this one and it goes to ZERO,
we will do just fine.
So, I'll respond, it might take a week. Also, thanks for the site, I will check it out. I too like these debates, questions like yours force me to look deeper. I dont expect to change my opinion, but, i would have no shame in doing so if my analysis and more of a hunch was wrong.
