    First shot on AMZN: Wall Street might get enough of AMZN and thinks it is time to let it go and tomorrow is the option day.

    So let's see, that means that based on JPM estimates AMZN trades at 95x 2014 earnings. Keep in mind those are earnings two years out!! This year's EPS estimates are lower. To give this some perspective, let's say someone were to ask you to lend them $100. They promise you that most likely they will be able to pay you $0.50 interest in the first year, $1 in the second year and after that, we'll see how it goes but possibly it will be more. Would you take that deal?

     

    If this isn't a bubble I don't know what is.

    Please understand the pressure analysts face. First they fear to be wrong and alone. No matter how good analysis you did, if you were wrong on timing and in minority opinion camp, you could lose your job. Second, you do not want to upset your Investment banking people. Companies like AMZN and Netflix constantly need to raise cash through debt or equity and they also do a few deals. IB business is important for the banks.
