Amazon.com Just Crushed Department Store Stocks Again With Prime Wardrobe -- The Motley Fool
Prime Wardrobe is Amazon's latest foray into the fashion market. Should department stores be worried?
God it is so funny to read about all of these people bashing Amazon for destroying jobs and industries. LOL, let me order you some tissue paper, don't worry though it will only take about a day with my amazon prime membership. TIMES CHANGE, and if you cannot adapt then you will get left behind. Jeff Bezos can take over the world because people/companies stand by and watch, or #$%$ about it, as opposed to actually DOING something about it. Have fun "boycotting" Amazon or whatever, you cannot stop a company like this. I think it is actually more insane to believe that this company will eventually fail or head into a free fall compared to believing that Jeff Bezos could rule the world.
When is this going to 2000! Yawn!
Amazon Debt? No margins, no matter.
For those of you worried about Amazon's debt, every soon to be unemployed stock analyst has been saying this for the last 20+ years...guess what Amazon is still leaving boxes on your doorsteps.
Our own Government has 20+ trillion in debt, guess what? It’s also still here….debt no longer matters as long as world banks keep giving out money for free with low to no interest rates. As long as this continues the band will remain on stage.
Unfortunately debt only matters when businesses or individuals have no revenue stream or new money to service and pay it back. You really think Amazons revenue stream is going to slow down…or stop existing. Think again.
Consumer debt is the same as it has been for the last 20+ years, the same people that were in debt 20 years ago have since filled bankruptcy again and are now in debt again ,this will rinse and repeat for the next 20+ years as it has been.
Granted technology is displacing more workers today and adding them new into this consumer debt pool but it is being compensated by the 1% who continue to gain more and more lion share of wealth with each passing year making up the tax and revenue shortfalls.
Our own federal government uses Amazon AWS for mission critical services. Amazon will not be allowed to fail, Amazon is a part of the United States Critical infrastructure program through its use of AWS.
Amazon will be bailed out by all of us taxpayers in any type of “black swan” event. So Amazon debt? No margins, no matter.
Anyone else in here trading Amazon stock options? Just selling puts, or what? Personally I'm very bearish on Amazon commons. This doesn't mean that I will not occasionally buy calls if I believe they are about to rally for some quick gains. Even if I'm long puts I sometimes average my positions for a narrower range. As for the number of shares arguments I see on here it makes no difference as long as it's not sub 100 million shares. One billion, seven point sever billion, or seven hundred million it's really about all the same folks. They are ust numbers really. PE and market cap are more important to me (still are, even in this market we have today because they always see the light eventually). As for "splitters" better hope they do not split because that's a 100% sell signal if they do any forward split. You buy a ton of OTM puts on the "split stall" for about a 500% gain. But I buy them at around $3 each so I just look at the ones with around 30 days left upon split that are around $3 each ($300). Remember the 100 times multiplier folks.
Keep in mind Amazon only has 477 Million shares outstanding.
Microsoft has 7.7 Billion, Apple has 5+ Billion, Facebook has almost 4 Billion, even if Amazon does a 5 for 1 split they will still only have 2.3 Billion outstanding far below the rest of tech. I would say their piers but who knows who that even is anymore…
You still think its overvalued?
Think about it.
what is going to happen this incoming earning quarter. anyone?
Just FYI, Costco makes money...guess what shares be dumping. Go on short AMZN I dare you, I triple dog dare you LOL
Costco shares’ worst stretch since Great Recession was after Amazon–Whole Foods deal
Costco’s stock extended its decline in the wake of the announcement of Amazon’s planned takeover of Whole Foods, which “surprised” Costco management, a Stifel Nicolaus analyst said.
The more grocery companies you buy, the more you become a grocery company with a PE of 10. AMZN thinks they know food distribution better than those in the business. We will see.
Next big leg up for the entire mkt. has begun. Nasdaq 10K by 2020 along with AMZN 2K+. BUY big tech. with zero risk of a major correction for years. UP!!!!!!
America in a nutshell: Why Amazon is really winning and its not why you think.
American's are now the most obese they have ever been pound per pound compared to any other time in history. You think they are going to push a shopping cart around? They can barley put on their shoes now...
Throw in the extreme laziness of Millennials the soon to be largest contributors to spending and you have a super-cell of super fatties and super lazies. Its the ultimate combination for click and ship.
Guess what? It all means massive continuing online sales. Fat + Lazy = Amazon Prime
Think about your own kids...are you really going to tell me they are not "Lazy" and given a choice would not have everything shipped to them instead of physically driving around from store to store?
Look around...do you not see endless fatties as far as the eye can see...if they can't bend over can they really push a shopping cart around and bend over to pick up product off shelves or reach for them?
These 2 forces are real and gaining weight everyday. :-) I know it sounds silly but think about it? Really think about it...obesity continues to rise year after year...and Millennials, enough said.
razor thin profit margin, years from now, people would say, I wish I had sold everything at $1000. Amzn bit more than it can chew, the deal the broke the camel's back is Whole food, should never have gone into foods. You can ship electronics and alot of furnitures and items but not food that requires live inspections.
For whatever reason, my intuition keeps screaming at me not to buy. If I do, I have a stinking suspicion that someone or something is going to pull the plug on it. Besides tech stuff, tell me what fundamentally has changed in the last several months besides a Repub prez who is business friendly, the potential of a recent acquisition being successful, (note the word "potential"....meaning it hasn't happened yet, and may never. Oh...and BTW....buyouts cost lots of $$ up front), and the MSM keeps hyping this thing to the moon? I'm not being a smart-Alice in my comment here, I'm very serious. Convince me this isn't a huge bubble that's going to burst soon.
Mark mahaney recently said Amazon is cheap and trades at 18 times cash flow. I'm getting 28 times cash flow (470 / 16.5). Is my math off or is Mahaneys?
Amazon stock is at 'one of the cheapest entry points' in 10 years, says leading tech analyst Mahaney
Amazon shares are a really good buy right now, RBC Capital Markets' Mark Mahaney says.
Imagine if Bezos decided to buy a health insurance company.
New all time high today .. lets go 😀👍🏼
What would you rather own...a company like Amazon on its way to over 1 trillion a year in revenues. Or a Target with a PE of 10? PE will cost you dearly, value will be crushed moving forward. What happens when this spreads to Insurance, Real Estate, Autos..."“Your margin is my opportunity. ..." Love, Amazon
You really want to bet against this? Good luck and God Speed.
Nike to start selling direct on Amazon WOW! Soon that will add another 2.2 Billion in annual revenue to Amazon once the store apocalypse completes its collapse. Projecting Amazon gets 15% of Nike's domestic USA annual sales revenue of about 14 billion in total sales.
I'm sure Nike will want a better deal then the standard 15% Amazon commission rate for selling on the platform. So say 10% still looking at another 2+ Billion per year going into Amazon coffers over the next decade.
Who is next to throw in the towel to Amazon? High end brands I think your on deck...batter up!
Nike has agreed to sell some of its products directly to Amazon.com Inc., a person familiar with the matter said, a concession by the sneaker giant that it can no longer afford to ignore the online retailing behemoth.
