    Mr. Santos, what do you think will make Amazon go below $100?

    That long-term chart is scary. Looks like it could easily go to $28-29, perhaps below.

    Apple is a one-trick pony. Amazon is a three-ring circus!

    Mr. Santos, when do you think Amazon will reach $400 a share?

    Gary, did you drive to Rockefeller Center in your BMW or did you take the train?

    Well, then, Mr. Santos, clearly your analysis cannot predict the movement of this particular stock if it only looks at the numbers in the SEC filings and press releases. You are analyzing the wrong things.

    You need a new model of analysis that looks at what actually affects the price of this stock, not at a bunch of numbers and trends that the stock price apparently does not reflect. You just need to figure out what those variables are and how to measure them and then how to present them in a meaningful manner conducive to making decisions about when to buy and sell.

    I think Amazon may be a textbook case where technical analysis is superior to fundamental analysis because it actually illustrates past market behavior. Does technical analysis allow you to predict the future behavior in an actionable manner, with some element of timing?

    The real question should be has traditional fundamental analysis been able to do that? No, it hasn't.

    That does not mean that your analyses have been done incorrectly. It just means that you have not been using the correct model. Technical analysis may not be enough, either. You may need to look at other predictors of how people feel about investing money in Amazon.

    The FBA items in Amazon's warehouses still belong to the 3rd party sellers. Amazon is just providing a service of storing and handling them.

    "drones will be shot down by the US government"

    Are you joking? One just landed on the White House lawn a couple of days ago and they didn't even know about it until they found it on the ground. There drones were hovering over the Super Bowl and nobody bothered to do anything about it. They won't shoot them down over all those people even when they know about them.

    Mr. Santos, what about the drones? I think it can work. If we can put a man on the moon, we can deliver sundries by drone.

    Are people shorting AMZN below $300? 'Cuz that might explain why it goes up like it did after hours. Maybe the only real buying just above $300 comes from shorts scrambling to cover before it heads back up to $400. Like a whole bunch of little booster rockets. Then they stop buying it drops again, and then the same people short it again below $300. Analysts find something, anything positive to say about one number on an earnings report, stock rises a little and frightens the shorts. Rinse & repeat.

    My advice to shorts is, don't cover! Just keep shorting more and maybe that will make it go down. Ride those shorts up to $400 and then short some more.

    Mr. Santos, it's time for you get serious about this situation and figure out why Amazon stock does not do what you think it should do based on your analysis of Amazon, the underlying company.
