Spiral, don't get your panties all bunched up in a wad. There is room for broad discussion here. Besides, after lammie falls on his shld sword, shorts will need to broaden out to further horizons.
Smellin yellin taper? Put down the bong dude. Won't happen in a thousand years. The national debt will explode if interest rates dial up. Besides, if rates go up, the common joe will actually make money on his savings, and they can't have that, can they? The feds in a box, and they won't stop the presses until the cows come home:) PM's haven't seen their last run by a long shot.
There are so many layers of lovely lard on amzn, and the thing is it keeps adding new layers. There will be billionaires made from amzn when she rolls over. No question.
No doubt shld will become toast one day. You are preaching to the choir on that front. However a much bigger scam that's simply biding its time before it gets wacked is amzn with its 20 times book! Imagine a glorified catalog company with razor thin margins on a good day selling at 20 times book? Really, tulip mania had nothing on that ruse.
Amzn profit margins are negative, and that excludes all the back taxes states are starting to claw back and the new ones they are installing. Long ago they hired the very best story teller on the planet, and to this day the BS continues unabated with wild reckless abandon about drones used for delivery etc. that negative PE and its earning miss every quarter spell one big disaster when the music finally stops, and it will stop one day, as it always eventually does to story tellers that lose money. Grant it, they will survive, but at steep discount to todays $400 a share imo. for this glorified catalog company/book-story seller.
And gentlemen that includes shld.
If not, then exactly how does yahoo shareholders monetize alibaba after ipo?
Andrew, that was a funny limerick indeed:) Thank you sir, I needed a good laugh this morning!
Spiral, since redemption of shares isn't selling shares according to longs, it must mean the purchase of shares according to longs... which reminds this poster of a phase heard long ago... 'Still the man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest'.
Wouldn't ya think if this thing was undervalued, the opposite would take place, since the ceo is very close to the pulserate? Or is that to tough of a concept for longs to get their arms around?
And that's a fact:)
CP, are you saying that 'distribution of shares is buying'? LOL, you must be related to jeffro Bezos:) My next question is when do the 'drones' arrive?
Jeffro has an imagination more fertile than Dr. Suess:)
PT BARNUM was a very smart man indeed. There is a sucker born every day!
To choose from. I think I will just use the dart board technique with my bets:)
