This shows that rising shipping costs is actually good for AMZN. With additional shipping costs for ALL retailers AMZN can now charge the same and be even more competitive with the likes of walmart. Sales will go thru the roof and thus drive the stock price to 400. They should still be able to earn 7 cents per share thus proving that they CAN be profitable no matter what. With increase in costs lets hod that line and SELL SELL SELL.
.....Or I can just drive down the street and pick it up for free at my local B&M establishment. Increase in shipping is going to eat away at margins if AMZN wants to stay competitive with WMT, TGT etc. Especially with them now collecting sales tax it makes little sense (or cents ) to wait for next day when I can just have it now. - PJ
