  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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?

    Here's the article:

    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.
  • 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 to Sell Some Items Directly to Amazon
    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.
  • No matter what their plans, you cannot buy a low margin declining grocery business and raise your valuation. On the contrary, the more low margin business you buy the lower your PE and P/CF. Amazon will not create gold from lead. The food business and home delivery have been slow to grow for obvious reasons. AMZN cannot change that.
  • from 910 to 1005 due to Wholefood? amazing
  • Let's review those well-known Amazon investments that turned out to be "under-performing" assets:
    - Drugstore.com
    - Pets.com
    - Homegrocers.com
    - Audible.com
    - Zappos.com
    - Woot.com
    - Diapers.com

    In two years, the cloud business will consolidate, just like the PC business in the 90s. IBM and Compaq were the first big players in the PC sector. The only survivor today is HP. By 2022, I predict AWS will be absorbed by one of the tech titan at much lower valuation.
  • Finally I can order underwear while being in my undies and try them on all while still being in my undies...its revolutionary! Low man on the pole at Amazon gets undie returns! LOL
  • In 10 years from now people will be saying " I wished I had bought Amazon at $1000.00. "
    (pre split) if any.
  • This bloated pig is going down. President Trump will finally stick it to Jeff Bezos where the sun don't shine.
  • I am 43 and I will sell this at 65.
    I will come back here and tell you guys how much profit I get. ^^
  • Buying has dried up...let her dump!!
  • WOW WOW WOW! Things are about to get real folks.


    Wal-Mart is reportedly telling its tech vendors to leave Amazon's cloud
    Wal-Mart is reportedly warning some companies that if they want its business, they can't run applications on Amazon Web Services.
  • Bezos first pick for the name of his company. Relentless.com. Obviously this is his attitude when it comes to world dominance.
  • 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.
  • Every little drop in the mkt. gets bought HUGE with unlimited global funds supporting the market so we can all keep making huge gains. This will last for many more years. BUY!!!!
  • Amazon has the $$ to invest in all sectors, but in reality their expertise are web commerce. All other investments are all average.
