It is hard to believe people still pay serious attention to the Street,didnt he have that CHK ex Ceo on the show several time?
The thrill is gone,will it come back?
Customers will come back,but they just wont be so enthused like before.
Like Kentucky Fried Chicken,like McDonald,like Wendy,like BurgerKing,like Benihana.
well,call me a liar,AGN did not go up today,Endo is the party spoiler,lowering forecast.
It seems the entire industry is doing nothing but lowering future sales and earnings.
AGN earnings May10th,we shall see,if it is good,it may help the entire industry,if it is bad???,well generic aspirin is cheap
Ebay store format is poor,all it is just a bunch of listings,dealers have been begging Ebay to separate store and auction,now most professional dealers have given up,either sink or swim with the auction sellers or take their better merchandise elsewhere ,say Rubylane or Etsy or both.
Etsy has a nice store format,you enter a store and browse the items,very few distractions like asking you to report the seller,report the item,beware of fraud,and tons of #$%$ waving in your face.
But Ebay would not buy Etsy,as Etsy format is for collectibles and home furnishing,small stuff while Ebay has Ebay motors,house,machines,auto parts,wholesale,the formats are not the same.
NEVER SAY NEVER,
I have seen PHILIP MORRIS ,(MO)AT 12 BEFORE THE SPLIT (OVERSEAS OPERATION WHICH IS NOW PM).
It is not the past earnings which keep a stock at high PE,it is the expected future growth and earnings which send some of these stocks to the moon,and back !
Like Netflix,Twitter,Ebay,AOL,MSFT,HP ,the list is a mile long
Third party retailers are free to join,quit or boycot AMZN,in fact some of the merchandise are considered guarded categories and AMZN would not want every John#$%$,Mary to sell on its site-toys,electronics,jewelry are some of these categories.
Bestbuy used to sell on AMZN until it realised by selling on AMZN it is promoting AMZN,and the fee,it aint cheap either.
I can name you list of vendors who quit selling on AMZN
You must be kidding.WMT crying foul ?
How many small busineses have been pushed into bankruptcy by Walmart? When stores closed,they go to work for Walmart at minimum wage and collect state aid$ for dependent children.
If you are a supplier and visit Mecca,AK,you know how Walmart purchasing agents drive a tough bargain.
What happens to SEARS and Walmart will some day happen to AMZN,
The problem with Etsy is that all it has is a retail platform for homemade and vintage goods,but it is doing quite well.
Final value fee (so called commision when item sells) is only 3% compared to Ebay 10-12%(ebay also charges FVF for shipping fee) and AMZN one click is 15% plus transaction fee of one dollar if you dont have a promerchant account of 49.99 with them.
Etsy has room to raise its fee,from 3% to 5%,I dont think sellers will complain
yes,few sellers still accept Paypal,but if you read the seller protection,Etsy will protect seller if he uses Etsy direct checkout,
When buyer claims item not received,all the seller has to do is to prove he has shipping,with Paypal and Ebay,seller has to prove not just shipped but delivered and anything over $750,signed for.
But I dont know how far Etsy will go to protect seller on just proof of shipping.
direct payment-Etsy has a merchant account to accept credit card payment,once paid,it deposits into seller bank account every week.
Paypal is the same,but Paypal has more bells and whistles like Paypal debit card,money order,etc
