No no, not drones, not shipping to centers before customers buy, no no. The tall tale being told: that the brick and mortar retail sales numbers were sooooooo bad because Amazon drank their milkshakes. The truth: Amazon's sales were OK, but not as spectacular as the unwashed masses expect. And even worse, the economy is now slowing, so forward sales will be worse.
Ebay has just confirmed this by lack luster earning, and lowered guidance for the 1st quarter. I see Scamazon making 28 cents last quarter, and a few pennies at best for the 1st quarter of 2014. Watch as EPS for 2014 goes down again to less than $1 by the 3rd quarter of 2014.
