Four Reasons Amazon is a Bear Killer (NASDAQ:AMZN)
Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) did it again. The world’s best merchant came into this quarter with substantial, aggressive shorts all seemingly betting a miss would send AMZN shares into a tailspin. The basic idea of shorting Amazon was that the stock was “overbought,” company margins are horrible, and the price to earnings ratio was effectively infinity.
If revenues and earnings came in light, Amazon’s stock would plunge, and the bears would finally at long last take down one of their white whales.
To their considerable chagrin, the bears got their earnings miss but the stock didn’t do what it “should.” After a brief drop, Amazon shares quickly roared to all-time highs after hours, a reversal of more than 10% in less than 10 minutes.
Here’s what Bears don’t understand about analyzing Amazon:
- Bezos Effect
- P/E and Cash on Hand Are Overrated
- Amazon is the Roman Empire of eTail
- Too Many Angry Shorts
