    Thoughts on $AMZN's quarter? The stock is up 8% AH.

    • Ashraf Eassa: The stock market is fundamentally about supply/demand. What were beanie babies really worth? Didn't matter -- people wanted 'em.

    • Ashraf Eassa: So is the case with $AMZN, $CRM, etc.

    • Bob de'Long: $AMZN knows how to take my money. But last retailer I bought was Church's Chicken back in the 70s/80s. Free jalopeno w chicken dinner!

    • David Jackson: JM - just trolling for interesting points of view. :-)

    • David Jackson: BTW, if you're watching $AMZN and didn't yet read Tack's comment that losbronces linked to above, you should - it's superb.

    • J Mintzmyer: Good points by Tack, but $AMZN has had 15 years. In the end, all the matters are profits. Revenue alone is worthless. $WMT was profitable.

    • raykrv6a: Growth won this time, but in the end growth always slows down......................

    • Regarded Solutions: Tacks comment was dead on...enormous growth paid for the enormous cost of entry, and quite frankly, there is no equal now, not even close.

    • Boatyzaffa: Great link Los Broncos. Tack's comment remind me of Clayton Christensen's, How Will You Measure Your Life? http://bit.ly/VuVzOF

    • Boatyzaffa: Read the section on "Create a Strategy for Your Life." $AMZN is "investing in initiatives that are crucial to their long-term strategies."

    • Oceanstats: What do $AMZN customers want? Free taxes?

    • David Jackson: Given the discussion about Tack's comment, interesting that the focus is on margin expansion not rev growth: http://seekingalpha.com/n/gybz

    • vandeley: The focus changes to whatever the analysts can try to put a positive spin on another dismal earnings report.
