What It’s Like Working For The Richest Man In The World
Angry Old Lady 4/9/2018 11:49:24 AM

You failed to mentioned in what capacity you worked for #Amazon. Supposedly, the conditions for their warehouse workers are sub-human and some have literally been worked to death! Those reports soured me on the company. $AMZN.

I'd really like to hear more about your experience working at #Amazon!

Is There A Turnaround Play At Western Digital?
Danny Straus 3/25/2018 1:51:55 AM

I'm not convinced #WesternDigital has any sort of competitive edge. I had thought they were making an impressive early foray into video streaming and turning TVs into Smart, all in one devices. But they were quickly eclipsed by #Roku, #Amazon, #Google and others. $WDC $ROKU $AMZN $GOOGL

Macy's Is Turning The Corner

Can you elaborate Larry Ramer? I don't see how any retailer can compete against the likes of #Amazon. $AMZN $M

Walmart is Not the Perfect Stock. So What?
Alpha Stockman 2/26/2018 4:40:00 PM

#Walmart's acquisition of #Jet was supposed to position the company as a viable competitor to #Amazon. But I've yet to see any technical innovation as a result. Can we still expect to see any benefits? Or was it just a waste of money? $WMT $AMZN

Bear of the Day: Pandora Media (P)

I like #Pandora, but don't see how they can compete against the giants like #Apple, #Amazon, and #Google, $AAPL, $AMZN, $GOOGL

Retail Apocalypse Accelerates: 200 Winn-Dixie Stores To Close As Parent Goes Bankrupt
Alexa Graham 2/18/2018 7:16:36 PM

I think it depends on whether you are talking about physical stores or online. Sure #Walmart has been taking an increasingly larger bite from grocery sales while it is still too early to tell if the #Amazon acquisition of Whole Foods will have a meaningful impact on it's marketshare.

But when it comes to online shopping, Amazon is becoming increasingly distruptive. It wasn't long ago that I started doing about 25% of my shopping online direct from the supermarkets' websites (usually as a result of a coupon being sent my way). But lately, I'd say about 75% of my grocery shopping comes straight from Amazon. Either direct or through Amazon Fresh. Prices are pretty good (especially when paired with their frequent coupons, shipping times are super fast, quality is excellent, and the customer service can't be beat.

Will Amazon Face Regulatory Measures?

Craig Newman 1/30/2018 1:26:14 AM

Sounds like an interesting product. But can you elaborate on how this differentiates from the advancements in voice recognition that companies like #Google, #Amazon and #Apple are making? Hard to see how you can compete with them. $GOOGL $AMZN $AAPL

Looking For The Next Amazon In The Technology Industry

So Edward Harrison, which companies are you betting will be the next #Amazon?

Roku, Next Big Tech Flop Or Opportunity?
Ayelet Wolf 1/18/2018 11:36:31 AM

Why is #Roku any better than #Google's Chromecast or #Amazon Fire TV Stick? I've never used Roku but the I have the other two. The Fire TV Stick was far superior in my opinion, with it's dedicated voice remote. Especially if you are deeply integrated into the Amazon Echo system.

But more recently Google seems to be winning out by having it's technology already integrated into far more TV sets. Why do you think Roku will win out in the end?

What Makes Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google So Special
Barry Hochhauser 1/16/2018 2:29:29 PM

There is something magical about #Apple, #Amazon, #Facebook and #Google. Did the author provide any insight into any other companies? $AAPL $AMZN $FB $GOOGL

What Makes Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google So Special
Ayelet Wolf 1/16/2018 12:58:13 PM

Sounds like an interesting read. But it doesn't sound like it answers the deeper questions. For example, I agree that #Apple creates a form of lust in it's loyal customers, to, as you said, "driving them to pay irrational prices when there are essentially identical products available from competitors at far lower prices." But HOW has Apple achieved this? Yes, #Amazon has built itself up from an upstart book seller, to essentially being able to provide for every aspect of our lives. but HOW did they manage to achieve this? Every other book seller is now either still just selling books, or out of business all together. $AAPL $AMZN $FB $GOOGL

Amazon "Basics" Well Beyond the Basics: World Domination?
Ayelet Wolf 12/20/2017 10:02:45 PM

Interesting article Mish Shedlock. But why does it matter? Virtually every store from pharmacies to supermarkets sell their own brand of discounted, comparable products.

And I wonder... how many Amazon Basic products does #Amazon sell as a percentage of it's total product offering? I suspect Amazon offers a far smaller percentage than their brick and mortar counterparts. $AMZN

The Case for Shorting Apple
Craig Newman 10/17/2017 9:55:28 PM

I'd say most people own one tablet and one phone. Maybe families with kids have more tablets for their children to play with, but I'd bet they are cheaper tablets like #Amazon Kindle Fires orones geared towards kids like the LeapPad. But tablets don't need to be upgraded as frequently and don't break as often. Phones are always on us and take a lot of abuse, get lost etc. And they tout many more new features with every generation.

By contrast, I can't tell much of a difference between the latest iPads and my older one. Sure they are fractionally faster, thinner and lighter. But barely noticeable. I see no need to upgrade. But regardless of the reason. tablet sales are down.
