amzn could grow eps at a 100% rate for the next 10 yrs and still a 10 times higher valuation than Walmart
"they could easily earn $9/share in 2yrs" -
what a joke - they are going the opposite way - more and more revenue and lower and lower margins that are not the result of "investment" The fact is they have not built a more efficient model and they have little no hope of reversing course unless they actually introduce a profitable line of business! The reason the forecast for 2013 is $1 share is because they little pricing power with costs rising. They are hoping once the "investment" cycle has run its course and they can get from under the depreciation but that is not going to work - never has. One thing you can guarantee is declining margins because they have to continue to push revenue higher because that is the only myth that can keep the stock higher.
