SYF, ‘Synchrony Financial’ As A Cheap Proxy Stock For Amazon (AMZN).

Not sure why I had NOT thought of this before. Maybe because I was already in AMZN, big time, and had been so for over 2 years.

But, this morning I happened to see SYF on CNBC and it got me thinking.

Why is it a PROXY for AMZN?

Because Amazon Store Credit Cards are issued by Synchrony Financial (via their Bank).

So more people that get Amazon Credit Cards the better it is for SYF.

AMZN at $900 is expensive and it is going up …

Yes, SYF will NOT MATCH AMZN performance.

But, SYF is 30 times CHEAPER.

So just a thought. Worth considering. I am.

Fuji Getting Desperate Enough To Offer Topless Model To Launch Its Latest Camera!

by Anura Guruge

I saw it on the ‘DPReview’ forums which I check multiple times a day to see what is new. Click image to access the relevant forum.

This is the U.K. ‘Metro’ article they reference — which does have a picture of the topless model. Click image to access original.

Does seem a bit strange and inappropriate — though, of course, taking topless pictures are part of what many photographers do.

You somehow want to think that Fuji could have done better than this. If nothing else it seems to LACK imagination. Like the first idea thrown up at the first planning meeting.

Just wanted to share.

I have no qualms about topless women or pictures of topless women. Just find it rather strange for a Japanese company to think that offering topless models is a way to promote their latest camera.
