The filing was made this week by an unidentified individual and the case has been assigned to the agency’s New York office, according to the agency’s website. It involved an alleged violation of a New Deal-era ban on punishing employees for involvement in collective action related to working conditions, according to a case summary posted online. This week, the internet giant came under fire from two leaders of the walkout, who alleged in a message posted internally that the company has been retaliating against them -- a claim Google has denied.
The announcement came after the online retailer Thursday reported first-quarter profit that exceeded analysts’ estimates, demonstrating the company’s focus on cloud-computing, advertising, and other high-margin businesses continues to pay off. Amazon Chief Financial Officer Brian Olsavsky later put the attention back on Amazon Prime, the subscription program that helped make the company the world’s largest online retailer. Established retailers and startups have closed the gap on Amazon’s offer of convenience.

Google will not have to pay 1.1 billion euros ($1.22 billion) in back taxes demanded by French authorities, an appeals court in France ruled on Thursday, dashing the government's bid to overturn a 2017 decision. The latest ruling comes at a time France is trying to crack down on digital service giants and the tax they pay, with the planned introduction of a French levy and as it pushes for broader international reforms. The back tax case centres on a claim by the French finance ministry that Google had declared advertising revenue in Ireland which had actually been earned in France, thus avoiding paying corporate tax and value-added tax between 2005 and 2010.
Investors anxiously await first-quarter results from Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) which reports earnings today after the bell. After dropping tremendously last fall, Amazon stock has rebounded. It now trades within 10% of the all-time high it reached last September.Source: Shutterstock Since AMZN usually beats estimates, the Q1 results will probably be good. The earnings could even send Amazon stock back to its all-time high. However, the near-term future of AMZN stock will likely hinge more on what happens after the earnings are released than on the report itself. * 7 Dividend Stocks That Could Double Over the Next Five Years Expect Much Higher Revenue, EarningsWall Street analysts, on average, predict that AMZN's first-quarter earnings per share will come in at $4.72. If AMZN meets that consensus estimate, , its EPS jumped 44.3% versus the same quarter last year. AMZN's revenue also looks poised to rise at least 10%. Analysts' consensus estimate for AMZN's revenue for the quarter is $59.65 billion , representing a year-over-year gain of 16.9%. On average, Wall Street analysts expect AMZN's profit to jump 36.2% this year and 45% in 2020.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThe owners of Amazon stock have become increasingly interested in the company's advertising business. Some view the business as a threat to both Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL, NASDAQ:GOOG) and Facebook (NASDAQ:FB). Amazon Echo also controls more than 60% of the smart speaker market. Furthermore, Amazon's retail operations continue to generate high revenues and eye-catching headlines, but they are not very profitable.Most of the company's earnings continue to come from Amazon Web Services (AWS), the company's cloud business. In Q4, AWS generated only $7.4 billion of AMZN's revenue of $72.4 billion. However, AWS accounted for $2.17 billion of the company's Q4 profit of $3.03 billion. A Key Level for Amazon Stock Is $2,050If the previous quarters offer any indication, AMZN tends to beat earnings estimates by a wide margin. I see little reason to expect anything different today. Also, AMZN stock has increased by about 45% since hitting its December low. Given that factor alone, I expect the equity to rise after the company reports its earnings. I believe Amazon stock will retest its 52-week high of $2,050 per share, an increase of about 7.5% from its current price of just over $1,900 per share.I see $2,050 as a critical level for Amazon stock,. I think if it can break through that level, it will continue to trade at a premium valuation. However, at the $1,900 level, its forward price-earnings ratio stands at 47.8, and its current PE ratio is just under 95.AMZN's top position in the cloud industry helps Amazon stock command a higher multiple than its peers such as Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) or Alibaba (NYSE:BABA). But AMZN stock appears cheap compared to emerging cloud companies such as Twilio (NYSE:TWLO). Driven by its rapidly expanding cloud business, Amazon's profit growth could enable Amazon stock to continue trading at its current, elevated level.Still, the bull market has entered its 11th year. Moreover, during last year's fall swoon in tech equities, we saw Amazon stock lose more than one-third of its value in less than four months. If market sentiment again turns negative, AMZN stock could easily drop by the same amount again. Concluding Thoughts on Amazon StockEarnings will likely take Amazon stock back to the $2,050 per share level. What happens afterward will probably determine the subsequent direction of Amazon stock.AMZN should continue its pattern of beating analysts' consensus estimates, making investors more positive towards AMZN stock and propelling Amazon stock back to $2,050.Investors' subsequent reaction will likely determine AMZN's near-term direction. If the shares remain above that level, I think Amazon stock will rise further.However, if AMZN stock falls, investors may start to care about its valuation and again take the equity downward.As of this writing, Will Healy did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned stocks.
