Its growth is slowing due to sales tax advantage is gone, and more serious competition in retail, media contents and cloud computing. Since its base is already too big, it is tough to keep have 25% growth.
Last quarter it only showed 22% growth, this quarter will be less than 20%. We may see 15% in 3rd quarter.
Growth funds will dump it if its growth ratio drop below 20%. Its share price will drop like what Apple did.

I should be clear that Amazon the stock is a ponzi, not the company. Although the stacked loss leader strategy with almost no net cash flow amidst structurally rising energy cost with free two day delivery to a growing number of people does come close...
