Netflix’s Race Against Time
Marcy Brown 8/16/2018 12:41:10 AM

Very well done. Though I will say that #Netflix has high customer loyalty which should be factored in. I remember when #Amazon was losing money like crazy in it's early years but look at it now.

The Star-Making Sizzle Of The Economy
Dan Jackson 8/2/2018 2:54:49 PM

Agreed. I'd say the only company that has ouysourced it's customer service abroad, yet still offers excellent customer service is #Amazon. One of the reasons I'm bullish on $AMZN. It shows you CAN have good customer service while still getting the savings from outsourcing.

Google Vs. Amazon: Choose Your Flavor
Carol D. Richards 7/20/2018 2:21:35 PM

Good article. What I find most interesting is how #Amazon and Google evolved from such different companies (Amazon a book seller vs. Google an online search engine) to going head to head in so many diverse categories. $AMZN $GOOGL

Will Small Auto Part Stores Survive Amazon?
Bruce Powers 7/2/2018 1:44:26 PM

With the exception of the cell phone, #Amazon has conquered every industry they've gotten into. I see no reason why it can't do that here as it already has tremendous related expertise and everything in place to outsell the existing leaders. $AAP, $AZO, $ORLY may very well follow in the footsteps of ToysRus. I'm very bullish on $AMZN.

Why Amazon Might Launch Its Own Cryptocurrency
David M. Green 6/11/2018 3:45:48 AM

This would be great! I'd actually trust #Amazon far more than #bitcoin, #litecoin or any of the others. $AMZN

Victoria's Secret Called 'Broken' By Analyst As L Brands Cuts Guidance
Alexa Graham 5/24/2018 4:38:30 PM

I disagree. Yes, #VictoriaSecret ($LB) is facing increased competition from American Eagle Outfitters ($AEO)' Aerie, #Gap's ($GPS) Love brand, and #Amazon's ($AMZN) Arabella brand. But VS's sales performed better in the first quarter of 2018 than in the same period last year. And they've been making a big push to increase it's online sales. And it's starting to work with an increase of 1% so far.

Disney Trying To Woo Fox - Technology Stocks
Ayelet Wolf 5/24/2018 4:30:45 PM

Unless #Disney terminates it's agreements with other streaming providers like #Amazon and #Netflix, I don't see the value in having a standalone product featuring their films. Most are already available elsewhere, why would I sign up for yet another service $DIS

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!

Momentum Tech Stocks (Tesla, Facebook, Nvidia, Alphabet) Hammered
Alpha Stockman 3/29/2018 7:32:20 AM

And don't forget #Amazon after #Trumps's announcement to go after them. $AMZN

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
Beating Buffett 3/2/2018 12:25:48 AM

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)
Alexa Graham 2/26/2018 4:12:45 PM

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.
