E-Commerce Times Talkback
See Full Story
Timing is everything in life. And for Amazon.com, the timing lately couldn't
be much worse.
It's clear to anyone following along that Amazon is making a full-court press to get to
pro forma profits in the fourth quarter, as it had said it would earlier in the year. And
it's also clear to casual observers of the U.S. economy in general, and online retail in
particular, that Amazon's job is getting harder every day.
pro forma profits are a lot of bs. even if jeff reaches that, amazon will still go chapter. if we pay for stocks we expect profits and dividends or we will sell our stocks and short the company.
As a former frequent customer of Amazon over the years, I have increasingly experienced the site being down and having a lot of computer glitches, orders not arriving on time, etc. So much that I go on to somewhere else to order my products. I predict that if things do not change in the 4th quarter they will not be around much longer after that. I had high hopes for Amazon and used to own stock.
