    we are offering a FREE DOWNLOAD of one of our Stock Reports, Inc. seeks to be the world's most customer-centric company, where customers can find and discover anything they may want to buy online. The company lists unique items in categories such as books, music, DVDs, videos, consumer electronics, toys, camera and photo items, software, computer and video games, tools and hardware, lawn and patio items, kitchen products, and wireless products.

    Amazon was in the news this week with a new business venture that seems just a bit more "real" than the Black Friday PR stunt concerning drone delivery, the creation of the Fire Smart Phone. For now, our models remain unimpressed. The company is still rated a sell, as it has been for much of 2014.

    ValuEngine continues its SELL recommendation on AMAZON.COM INC for 2014-06-19. Based on the information we have gathered and our resulting research, we feel that AMAZON.COM INC has the probability to UNDERPERFORM average market performance for the next year. The company exhibits UNATTRACTIVE Book Market Ratio and P/E Ratio.

    The jury is still out on the "Sell in May and Go Away" maxim this Summer, but the warmer weather certainly hasn't cooled off the ValuEngine View's performance. For May/June, the ValuEngine View returned to its winning ways with a great month, We saw winners almost across the board with a hit ratio of 80%. Strong market gains were met with even stronger results from our picks. Our portfolio posted a big gain in excess of 9% and more than doubled the S&P 500. The trailing 12 month gain of the VE View is 33.44% versus the S&P 500 return of 17.57%. We are almost doubling the S&P over the past year. The return since inception of the View is 119.65% versus the S&P's gain of 71.48%. It remains our best performing newsletter under current market conditions.
