AMZN Should Buy Up Retail?

|Includes:, Inc. (AMZN), KORS, KSS, M

AMZN accounts for over 40% of North American ecommerce sales.

Amazon Basics: adding apparel & retail would boost sales.

Perhaps a good move during the current political regime.

This came up when rumors began around the American Apparel bankruptcy. The idea for American Apparel was perfect. They would buy up the IP and inventory and stores. A seamless integration could begin. If AMZN were to buy M, KSS and KORS $36 billion (give or take) - would this be a good thing?

$36 billion is not going to shake AMZN. Additional questions arise like: Will this hurt AMZN's bottom line? Amazon has a strong history of selling $1.00 for $0.99 (or 98 cents) but how will that equate if they take on additional retail liabilities.
