  • Amazon.com: Here's How Much Drone Deliveries Would Cost Per Delivery [View article]
    215304,

    Excellent comment Sir!

    Your last sentence says it all-"...an Amazon stock pump scheme with no substance."

    Amazon stock promoters-arguably the best and most imaginative in the business-having virtually exhausted the tiresome and ludicrous drone fiction will undoubtedly be moving their heavy artillery to promoting another fantasy-the alleged wonders of AWS and its potential for creating enormous profits several years down the road.

    Paulo,

    This incessant pushing by the wizards at Amazon and their minions of the uneconomic and unfeasible concept of using drones to deliver mundane household staples may eventually convince investors that Amazon has totally lost whatever "cool" image it once had.

    Ark Investments,

    When I first read this work of art, I supposed it had been composed by the Master himself with some assistance from the cohort of pseudo intellectual clones he employs as publicists for his zany concepts.

  • Why Amazon's Next Earnings Report Is Important [View article]
    The panoramic view,

    The "cloud" is not much more than an electronic data storage utility and as such will never be vastly profitable, much as few if any of Amazon's branches will ever be more than marginally profitable.

    In addition Amazon's well heeled competitors such as Microsoft, Google and others will eventually catch up with and eclipse AWS.

    Despite this certain so-called stock analysts-actually little more than cloned Charlie McCarthy's-acting for certain well known major brokerages keep touting the vastly overpriced stock of Amazon.

    Although the analyst's motivations in pumping this stock are somewhat unclear I suspect it is because almost all of Amazon's stock-other than that held by Mr. Bezos and other insiders-is held by institutions who acquired the stock at very low prices and are now anxious to reap substantial profits by unloading this obscenely overpriced stock on the gullible general public.

  • Amazon hires pilot-union exec for Prime Air [View news story]
    All the smoke and mirrors stories put out by Amazon about drones appears to be for the prime reason of disguising the fact that Amazon is a permanently low margin retailer which is not, has not, and never will be reasonably profitable while operating under its present model and with its current management of like minded clones..

    Drones have been around for close to a century. They will have some marginal future utility in the delivering of needed supplies to remote and inaccessible areas, such as emergency medical supplies, but will never be a major force in the delivery of every day household products.

    The main barrier to their wide use will be expense, coupled with the reluctance of regulatory authorities to permit the wide usage thereof and the revulsion of the general public to grasping sociopathic enterprises such as Amazon cluttering up the public's airspace with these noisome and intrusive products.

  • Apple Loss To The Smartflash Patent Troll Has Implications For Others, Including Amazon.com [View article]
    Mr. Santos,

    Thanks for the thoughtful and interesting article.

    Although Amazon might be severely impacted by patent lawsuits such as the one you mention, I believe that in the near future Amazon is more likely to be kicked in the butt by an unfavorable tax ruling by European Taxing Authorities looking into the Luxembourg tax fiasco.

    The penalties exacted by EU rulings are usually very substantial as Microsoft has found out on several occasions..

  • The Amazon Conspiracy Isn't [View article]
    eenk,

    Thanks for explaining, in a very polite way, to Mr. Beemer the weakness in his constant, carping, and unseemly "ad hominem" personal attacks on Mr. Santos and his beautifully crafted and eminently readable articles.

    Paulo also writes articles on a number of other companies for S.A. and he has a deservedly huge and devoted following.

    Whether Mr. Santos has lost money in shorting Amazon stock or purchasing puts is entirely irrelevant to the issue of whether he writes knowingly and honestly.

    Paulo always puts his cards on the table and deals with historically verifiable present and past facts not vaporous speculative nonsense about the unforeseeable future of Mr. Bezos and his tacky conglomerate.

    JR,

    Suggest you start with learning the definition of the word "detractors".

    Will further add that I admire Paulo's benign treatment of detractors with the intellectual heft of a fruit fly.

    Carpe Diem!!

    Paulo,

    I have been following your articles on a number of companies since early 2012. The most enjoyable and controversial are on Amazon and Tesla.

    You have defended your positions extremely well and have been proven right time and again.

    In defending your positions you have always like a true Heavyweight Champion displayed remarkable courtesy to boorish comments from uneducated and perhaps retarded featherweight detractors whose names are not worthy of mention in the same breath.

    If there were a Pulitzer prize for outstanding financial reporting coupled with steadfast integrity and graciousness you would be a unanimous winner.

    Congratulations for setting the gold standard for research, literacy, and accuracy. You always back up your opinions with solid facts.

    Please keep up the excellent reporting on the hot air balloon that is Amazon as it moves towards a very sorry conclusion..

    Allan,

    You are dead right in your assessment of this wretched misbegotten company.

    I personally have no doubt that the already lousy 2014 4th quarter earnings should be carefully examined by a team of independent forensic accountants to determine how much credibility they have.

    Keep up the good work! The full story of Amazon still remains to be told.
