Amazon’s Toys Cheaper Than Wal-Mart Online

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-11-1 ... nline.html

Amazon.com Inc.’s toy prices were lower than those available online from Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and Target Corp. last week as retailers seek to attract shoppers heading into the crucial holiday selling season.

Amazon’s prices, excluding those from its third-party sellers, were 3 percent lower on average than Wal-Mart’s on a basket of 87 toys, according to a study conducted by Bloomberg Industries on Nov. 14. Including the Marketplace vendors, which use Amazon’s platform to sell their own products, the pool of comparable goods expanded to 115, and Wal-Mart was cheaper by 1.2 percent, on average.

The pricing battle may help determine which retailers win consumers’ toy purchases during the holiday season. Sales in November and December account for 20 percent to 40 percent of U.S. retailers’ annual revenue, according to the National Retail Federation.

“Being competitive on toy prices is crucial to drive market-share gains during the holiday season,” Poonam Goyal, a Bloomberg Industries analyst in Princeton, New Jersey, said in a telephone interview.

Blue Chips Crushing Earnings: Amazon.com, Inc. (AMZN)

Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) didn’t even have any earnings, and yet it blew the market away with its results, sending shares up as much as 15% at one point.

As has become par for the course at AMZN, INVESTMENTS in the business led to another net loss for the company, albeit one that was narrower than Street forecasts by 2 cents a share. Revenue also came in ahead of analysts’ expectations.

But the real star of the quarter was the surprising strength in Amazon’s cloud-computing BUSINESS. Revenue rose nearly 50% last year to $1.57 billion. That put it on pace to be a $6 billion business by the end of the year.

The earnings report launched AMZN STOCK out of a multimonth period of stagnation, though AMZN has pulled back a little since then.

As long as this is just some healthy consolidation, though, AMZN should easily build on its already impressive 35% YTD gain.

Stocks to Take Profits on NOW

Amazon Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) rocketed higher after earnings, spurred by surprisingly good news regarding the company’s cloud service division.

AMZN shares are up 37% year-to-date alone, thanks to a 14% jump the day after the earnings announcement was made.

As hot as that move was, however, it doesn’t change the fact that Amazon.com still booked a loss for the quarter, and still saw margins on its cloud business shrinking rather than widening.

The only thing that’s changed between now and before earnings? Now AMZN has not one but two major chart gaps beckoning it lower.

In fact, Amazon has been nothing but weak following its post-earnings jump.

7 Big Tech Stocks Worth Your Attention: Amazon.com, Inc. (AMZN)

Remember when Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) was just a bookseller? Yes, it was a disruptive concept back then. And it has certainly changed the face of publishing in the ensuing years.

But AMZN wasn’t a new kind of bookseller. It was a new business model that proved its worth in the publishing sector.

Since then, AMZN has taken on big-box retailers, cloud storage networks and tablet makers.

And most recently it started the whole stir about drones. When CEO Jeff Bezos announced on the TV news show 60 Minutes that he was looking into delivering packages using drones, it captured the imagination of a huge swath of Americans.

Its Bezos’ ability to reimagine seemingly mundane things in new and exciting ways that continues to fuel this business. But that growth hasn’t come cheaply. The company spends when it sees opportunities and doesn’t really concern itself with steady-Eddie quarterly growth.

But the risks have paid off handsomely as of late; the stock is up nearly 40% in 2015 after a less-than-stellar 2014. But if you stretch out AMZN’s growth over the long term, it is a great tech stock to have in your portfolio.

Large-Cap Leaders: Amazon (AMZN)

Market cap: $200 Billion
Year-to-date gains: 41%

And that brings us to Amazon (AMZN), which I recently wrote about to remind investors that fundamentals are anything but relevant for shares of AMZN.

The stock sports a forward P/E of 170, a PEG ratio of more than 30 and a negative return on equity, plus earnings have declined by an average of -13% annually over the last half decade … and AMZN stock has still produced a sweet 41% year-to-date climb.

It’s also a mega-cap pick; the e-commerce play just keeps on expanding its offering and its worth, boasting a monster market cap of $200 billion — a massive chunk of change that’s difficult for most of us to even imagine.
