    Exactly. Even if AMZN were to remain at $260 for the next 2-3 years AND the company actually meets these ridiculous expectations, the company would still carry a trailing price-to-earnings of roughly 30. This is absolutely atrocious. If anyone is looking for value, check out Bed Bath and Beyond ($BBBY), Apple ($AAPL) or Priceline ($PCLN). All three companies are trading and incredible value in comparison to 13' estimates. Load the boat now.

    • No one buying Amazon is looking for value. Many funds who haven't thought very clearly about what is meant by "inflation" see it as a growth/inflation hedge. What they haven't done is rigorous analysis on the underlying economics of Amazon's business model. If they did, they would see that Amazon is NOT a good "inflation" hedge (nor is it a good "deflation" hedge...). But, that would require a real understanding of the cost drivers...
