Amazon will be new Target for more competition from Microsoft, Apple, Google, IBM, now that they all know Amzn grabbed decent market share in Cloud Segment. Expect similar promtions by others and injurious competition from bigger much better capitalized firms.
that's the bottom line. Amazons margins after all overhead, all promotions costs are a Loss. And overall growth for the whole co. was 15%, less than Apple did year over year.
ok, but Amazon loses money at its web-based shopping catalog type retailing. If Amzn raises prices to have positive margins, down goes its sales.
The Cloud concept is not new. Its back to what computing was for small people pre-PC era. It was called dumb terminals hooked up to an IBM mainframe computer via time-sharing over a data network or phone lines via a modem. Key problem is the Mainframe computer has all your data, documents, and so the Government can eavesdrop on u anytine and u won't even know it.
I made money on the PUTS I sold on Amazon. Great. Price rose, the Puts I AM SHORT now will expire Worthless. I will take that $ and now reverse, BUT PUTS (if the stock's up alot tomorrow).
I was SHORT PUTS going into earnings. So i will clean up (pocket the Puts Premiums). But now with Amazon stock up alot after-hours, on WORSE EARNINGS and only so-so Revs. growth of 15%, I will take profits and INSTEAD LONG PUTS. If the stock is up alot tomorrow, I will BUY PUTS.
Just wait, no-one in 1929 could understand how RCA got to well over $100 a share. After the 1929 Stock Correction, it was $4. Same thing with Amazon, no Earns. nor Positive Cash Flow nor increasing StockHolders Equity to underpin even 25% of its current stock price. Once Stocks start down in price, when the Correction hits, it will be a VACUUM under Amazon's stock price.
good idea, BABA worth buying, a great purchase. I've made money on BABA... plus BABA earns money unlike AMZN riddle.
but that does not make a valuable business. in fact it leads to eventual bankruptcy. Amazon still has not shown its capable of ever making money.
now that Amazon is "hyping" that it got a good chunk of the Cloud Business, Amazon will become a TARGET for GOOGL, MSFT, IBM and eventually APPLE too, all with much deeper pockets than Amazon's puny $5 billion accumulated positive cash flow since going public in 1996. Amazon's sales growth in Cloud Computing therefore will slow alot by next quarter. AMAZON THE NEW TARGET, will be eaten alive by Microsoft and Googl.
Amazon's disclosing its Cloud Div revenues for first time, will make AMAZON a "TARGET" for much larger and hugely capitalized companies that make tons of Pos. Cash Flow. Amazon soon will see lower growth even in its division having good growth, once Amzn is a "target". Unlike Apple in Smartphones, Amazon does not have sufficient capital to fight off other companies that will be better able to cut prices and costs in Cloud Services, to grab market share. If Amazon loses any more money, it will be forced to do PIPE Financings, selling convertible bonds into its shares at lower prices.
congrats to Longs. But this is not the first "Bubble Stock" in history. RCA stock in 1929 got to over $100 a share ( Radio then was the internet hype), after the US Stock Market Crash RCA was down to $4. CMGI. internet hype stock in Search was $50 a share in 2000, down to $3 in 2003 stock market bottom.
yep that's it, In all European countries Google is " forcing " consumers to use its search and its system, by providing better Search System...etc. Here consumers make own choice... The EU however exists by police powers and threats, and seeks $$$ from Google, regardless of true interpretation of facts.
Hydrogen, as in lighter than air, and what happened 80 years ago in Lakewood? NJ, ended the Zeppelin Era.
When the next correction comes, AMUZON, RUNNING ON HOT AIR (no earnings, almost no positive cash-flow since AMZ N IPO in 1996), will... well lets just hope its up there on Hot Air and not HYDROGEN, cause Hydrogen if Sparked...
