"When you command 10 million
customers, then you become attractive to advertisers," says
Ravi Malik, a portfolio manager at Froley-Revy
Investment Co. "In the short run it's going to be volatile,
but in the long run, I think Amazon is using the
This line of reasoning usually
ends with Amazon being compared to America Online. The
idea is that Amazon can increase its customer traffic
enough to attract advertising dollars, just as AOL has.
But there are some important differences between AOL
and Amazon. First of all, AOL provides a service for
which users get charged $20 a month. It also offers
e-mail, which insures steady traffic and is a pain to
change once a client's friends and business contacts
have his or her address. Simply put, torpidity keeps a
lot of customers coming back to AOL.
has amassed what's considered to be the biggest
audience of users on the Internet, 16 million subscribers
in all. Amazon has only half that many clients, and
most view the site as a retailer rather than as a
source of information or entertainment. That's why they
don't tend to hang out on the Amazon site for hours at
a time the way they do at AOL.

he said if AOL would break 112 ,which it did.
that would bring it down to the 95 -105 buc area, it
did and its old news. AOL tried to break it again
friday and it couldnt (113 and change was the low ) .
AOL is done finding lower lows, as you can see now we
will start seeing higher lows and higher highs in the
future. lower lows is old and friday proved to me its
moving higher ! do a triangle chart like CNBC did,
Kernen said its either breaking out or breaking down the
early part of last week . if you watched CNBC friday
after the close AOL was the only stock Kernen was
watching and he even said that this stock is in a bullish
move based on a triangle chart of lows and highs !!!
shorts are Fu@ked !!
AOL may, thats may !!!! see the 95 buc area short
term . my opinion it`s done that did that !!! last
week and up from here !!! 95-105 is safe and it
touched that zone area !! up up up up we go from here
!!!!! he never said 50 bucs !!! sounds like a scared
I guess Barrons feels that whenever they want
AMZN's stock, or any Internet stock to plummet, they can
just come out with a really really negative article,
specifically, for now, about Amazon, afterall, it's starting to
feel like clockwork with them. It wasn't too long ago
they came out with an article bashing and trashing
Amazon which made the stock plummet the following
Monday. Now they are doing it again.
It's a sad
statement to our society that this sort of Junk Journalism
can be so easily published nationwide and promoted as
coming from a so called respectable publication (or is
that now past tense?) In reality, Ms. Doherty's
article is nothing more than junk journalism, the kind
that the tabloids put out.
I woke up about an
hour ago, and actually had nightmares while sleeping
of Jeff Bezos's puffed up, horror stricken head in a
bomb, as Barrons had plastered in horrofying display on
their cover. If this isn't tabloid junk journalism with
a clear and very distinct personal grudge against
Jeff Bezos and Amazon by Barrons, then I don't know
The good news, is that after this
article, Barrons reputation will most likely begin its
downard spiral as nothing more than a tabloid junk
publication. Was it once a respectable newspaper? I don't
know, I can't remember back that far.
nice Memorial Day, and remember why we have this
