    Yet the price includes (among other stories):

     

    (1) The Kindle selling as much as the iPod (last year's story)
    (2) Barnes & Noble's being "for sale) (summer's story)

     

    Meanwhile the stock trades at a 72 multiple and Bezos himself is a seller.

     

    What gives?

     

    Stocks go up and down because people buy and sell. Analysts are irrelevant at best.

     

    Incidentally, why is this story labeled "Tech?"
