  1. could you make a forecast of where you think Amazon's profits, cash, p/e and stock price might be in some future year (2000) and then indicate whether or not that is reasonable? All my forecasts show that if Amazon maintains growth rates and stock only increases 6% per year from current levels (market average more or less), than it's price to operating income is still higher than Oracle and Microsoft in 2000 and therefore crash-worthy.

  2. I got one question bro please if you get the chance to answer i would highly appreciate it. I want to get into buying stocks but how or what will be my first step as in to buy or where can i go for thorough information.

  3. Amazon bought whole foods recently for 13.7 billion dollars. This was a stupid move by by Amazon. Managing a grocery chain won't be easy. Amazon's arrogance will lead to them losing big.

  4. Wal-Mart actually does have a video streaming service, Vudu, more a virtual Red Box, than a Netflix or Amazon Prime video.

    I've actually started ordering toilet paper, paper towels and the like through Wal-Mart online. Their prices are a lot better than Amazon for that kind of stuff, and it is so much better than going to the store.

  5. Thanks Ryan. Hit all the points ! thanks for the great insights… I am also interested to understand any possibility of stock split on Amazon which may be a factor in stock price. Any info on this possibility ?
