It is not the day traders that will determine the
fate of Amazon. It is the capitalists with the
millions of pounds. Quite frankly if these people have
given Amazon billions of pounds on favourable terms
they must have a lot of faith.
I work as a
computer programmer. What Amazon have accomplished is a
result of talented people. This does reflect on the
management as well. It is not enough for a few talented
programmers. There needs to be actual management there than
has a clue what is going on technically as well. This
is just so obvious to anyone with a technical rather
than trading background.
Amazon is not a scam.
Else why would people do such good
Organising a scaleable, searchable system that delivers to
the whole world is a great accomplishment.
behaviour of the shorts on this message board is to drag
down the hard work of a lot of people. It is shameful
It is the capitalists and not you
day traders that decide whether Amazon is a scam or
not. You people are only interested in making a quick
buck. You are more of a scam than Amazon. At least
Amazon creates something.

I spent the last half hour or so trying to find a
publicly-held company that WASN'T overvalued by 4 times or so
(Hell, even IBM has a P/E of about 30-1!)
people can see what one looks like, here's PACCAR (they
This is the kind of stock that doesn't have a lot of
"chat", and that INVESTORS would buy. See that "Div"
thing. You may not have known what that is...it's gone
out of favor lately. The P/E of 4-1 is what any owner
of a company would expect from his or her
corporation. If you think that this is unimportant, then I
have an enterprise which, while paying my salary, is
not making any more money. If you will give me
$10,000, I will still probably not make any more money for
the next five years or so...but I think that I will
make a lot of money after that, and I may pay you some
of it, but I won't promise.
Please send the
Uh ok, I'll be sending you my money! I trust you!
You're great! I gotta believe in something, so it may as
well be you! I love giving my money to strangers! It's
yours, here take it! I've been givin Amascam all my
money till now, and they keep losin like $3 million a
day, so why not give it to a nice guy/gal like you?
Sure, here take it, I don't want it! Take all of it!
Hey Nem, tell Jeff I want my money back and give it
to banko98273! I LOVE TO GIVE MY MONEY AWAY TO GOOD
PEOPLE I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT BECAUSE I'M DRUNK!
You confuse the Company with the stock price. If
Amazon is destined to be a long-term survivor, then
shorts & bashers have done no more harm than helping to
depress the price temporarily, enabling long term
investors to acquire even more shares at cheaper prices. If
Amazon is to fail, then what the shorts do is
irrelevant. As a matter of fact, when things get really grim
the only buying will be short covering.
has also confused the Company with the stock price,
and has bet the farm on meeting the expectations
implied with a 15B+ market value. He is losing the bet.
I cannot believe that you are over 30 years old.
OF COURSE the workers at Amazon are great, I know a
couple of them. Amazon, along with Microsoft, Oracle,
Cisco, etc. are, indeed, good companies, who turn out
fine products at, by and large, fair
The point is, and it is a point that people just
refuse to understand, is that the stock in these fine
companies is HORRIBLY overvalued.
In 1929, another
fine company, RCA, (I've owned several of their
products), was equally overvalued. It was the "tech" darling
of its day (similar to CISCO or Oracle). It stock
chart prior to 1929 is almost identical to that of the
4 Horseman. In the crash, its stock plummeted in
value, but only to a point where its earnings began to
bear some reasonable relationship to its stock price.
It was always a good company. It's just that its
stockholders were crazy.
As to wanting to profit on the
foolishness of others, and their failure to see the obvious
(despite history and a series of warnings) OF COURSE I
want to make a dollar here. I am the little pig with
the brick house. If the other little pigs lose a lot
of money because they fail to get themselves
educated in simple things (like expecting a dividend from
their company), then they are rightfully parted from

When these good companies start
earning money and paying dividends, then their stock will
be at a proper level.

Oh, just chill!
Everybody realizes that
AMZN's software, web design, fullfilment, and customer
service are about as good as it gets on the net, the
product of excellent thinking and execution.
its a horse race, Dude. AMZN is a very good looking
pony, but many are betting that it can't finish, and
they say why they think so on this board, backing
their opinions with real money.
But, if you
think your pony is fast - you should go long right
PS: "If you wouldn't buy this stock tomorrow, why do
you own it today?"
