  • Soros' Selling Of Amazon Position May Be The Catalyst For A Broad Sell Off

    George Soros exited his entire position in Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) in his latest 13G filing. This could finally provide the catalyst for broader fund selling as fund managers may have lost their cover in explaining to their management why they held onto a momentum bubble stock with astronomical valuations after Soros decided the stock had gone to far and took profits.

    Disclosure: I am short AMZN.

  • Amazon Consensus Raised Slightly For Q4 Tonight, Lowered Again For CY13

    Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) Analyst consensus estimate for earnings tonight was raised the second time this week from $0.27 last week to $0.28 over the weekend, and now to $0.29 this morning on revenue of $22.26B. With expectations rising it may be difficult to AMZN to meet expectations as US e-commerce revenue growth came in below expectations for the quarter.

    The key number may be the Q1 revenue quidance vs. current expectations of $16.86B. Analysts also reduced full year CY13 EPS estimate to $1.70 from $1.74 last week (and $1.82, 90 days ago). That places AMZN 2013 FWD P/E at 162.

    My analysis suggests $0.22 in earnings on $21.9B in revenue for Q4, and guidance of $16.5B in Q1 revenue. I am expecting $1.26 in earnings for CY13.

    AMZN stock is trading down about $15 (5.3%) over the past 2 days prior to the earnings release after close of the market today.

    Disclosure: I am short AMZN.

  • Bad News is still Good in this market. Bad jobs report (on consensus) = more QE. Clearly not ready for a correction yet. No summer swoon.

  • $AMZN has now re-traced 100% of the drop since that terrible Q1 earnings report. How quickly the market forgets how bad the numbers are.
