    This is still a growth company in a market with huge potential returns.
    Ask any Amazon's competitors and you will get the same story. Shoppers are using our stores to check out products before they buy them on Amazon. Keep your eye on the Kindle sales. Amazon's investment in the Kindle will pay off in increased sales of books and movies.

    Consumers check the prices mostly to see the gap vs. paying state sales tax as a trade off to wait to have it delivered.

     

    Most states and even Feds are looking at legislation to have sales tax charged at transaction by Amazon - will be huge hit to their already miniscule margins and/or to their value proposition vs. brick & mortar

     

    They've had "Huge potential returns" for 10 years now
    what's missing is the actual returns
