    Even if this goes below 200, the P/E is still in tripple digits.

    Unlikely.... EPS has been slowly getting revised down and so has the stock price since it hit 700+.

    I think this is a positive for AMZN. The bears are just plain wrong! With losing money now there is no need to worry about a P/E ratio :)

    From hereon, AMZN's earnings won't matter. After all, who cares about profits when you can increase sales by losing money on every Kindle Fire tablet sale? Third-quarter revenue was $13.81 billion, up 27 percent from a year earlier, but that includes the Kindle Fire which was absent a year earlier. Without the Kindle Fire, revenue growth would have been less than 25 percent from last year. This is far slower than the 40% revenue growth rates it enjoyed just a few years ago.

    TTM P/E is only 2476. The profits will be coming. Just hang tight while we keep selling more stock.

    You'd have to be nuts to own this bubble stock.

     

    The fundamentals suggest that investing here is an automatic money loser.

     

    2014 price target: $75

    Just continuing a ton of stocks that are missing a very low bar. The consumer is going back into it's shell.

     

    Plus look at this !!!Worst things to worry about imo

    It's probably Ben Bernanke buying this stock with the patented "One-Click" print and buy.
