I Have A Feeling That Amazon Will Split, 10-to-1, Before Jeff Bezos Leaves — But I Could Be Wrong.

by Anura Guruge


Just a hunch. But, I could be wrong. It doesn’t really matter to I. As some of you know I have BIG into AMZN for many, many year. That said, I do like splits. Why? Two reasons, both of which were amply demonstrated with Tesla’s split last year. These being:

  1. News of the split will drive the price up. It shouldn’t, but it always does! So, that would be fun. Yes, the price will fall, but the run-up is exciting & some can profit majorly — though not I. I rarely sell any AMZN shares. I am in AMZN for the long-haul.
    ….
  2. A 10-to-1 split will open up MORE opportunities for option trading. That is the BIG DRAW as far as I am concerned. You can ONLY trade options in 100-share blocks. With AMZN’s $3,000+ price amassing 100-shares is expensive –> $300,000! But, following a 10-to-1 split it would be 10 times easier. SMILE. You will only need $30,000. HUGE difference. I talked about this with TSLA. Yes, I benefited from this with TSLA. Think about it.

As the stock chart above shows there has NOT been a split of AMZN this millenia! It has been over 20-years. At $3,000+ the price is ripe for a split, & 10-to-1 sounds good to 1. Even a 5-to-1 will not be bad.

However, I think that Jeff Bezos’ departure in June is the real catalyst & motivation. Jeff has already wrought miracles in terms of both the company & AMZN stock price. But, a split prior to his departure will give the AMZN price another spike. That would still be under Jeff’s tenure. When history is written that spike will also be credited to him. So, rather than leave when AMZN was at (say) $3,250, it might go as high as $4,500 (pre-split). Will make Jeff’s legacy that much richer. Think about it. SMILE.

That Jeff Bezos Is Relying On Psychics To Tell Him Of The Future, Does NOT Bode Well For Amazon’s Future.

This is getting worrying. Jeff Bezos, the once MIGHTY VISIONARY now paying psychics!

This whole affair thing and the Dick Pictures had me concerned. Now I am real worried.

I have fairly decent financial stake in Amazon. Jeff Bezos has done me proud. But, I don’t want him blowing my gains.

He has to know better than to be consulting psychics.

This is not good. I assume that the Amazon Board and other executives are beginning to feel on edge.

Has all the pressure over the last 30-years been too much? Finally catching up on Jeff.

Well, at least I warned you.

No Sympathy For Jeff Bezos; 53-Year Old Who Does ‘Dick Pictures’ Deserves To Be Exposed.

by Anura Guruge


Click image to access original. Google for more coverage.


Why Jeff Bezos, 53-years old & the world’s richest man, felt a need to send ‘dick pictures’ confounds me.

He is 53. Has 4 kids.

I am not joking. I just don’t get it. He is past middle-age. Why does he feel a need to send ‘dick pictures’?

He totally deserved to be exposed!

Shameless.

I think he has issues. Something has got to be wrong. I am pretty sure that most 53-year old men do not send ‘dick pictures’.

He should be so ashamed of himself. Doesn’t matter that it is claimed that he has a BIG ‘dick’. He should not be sending ‘dick pics’. He is old enough to be grandfather.

I feel bad of his kids. One of them an adopted Chinese.

What he did was so wrong. A sick man.

I Am Miffed With Amazon’s Jeff Bezos For His Affair (& Divorce) BUT Not For The Reasons YOU May Think.

by Anura Guruge


From the UK ‘Daily Mail‘.
But you can get the story anywhere …

Click to ENLARGE.


As a huge, very long-term fan of Amazon, an Amazon shareholder and an admirer of (the incomparable) Jeff Bezos I was rather disappointed when I read about the divorce and, of course, the affair that prompted it. As soon as I heard ‘divorce’ I knew that there had to be at least one ‘affair’. So, that part shocked me none.

I feel that Jeff has let many of us DOWN. First and foremost he is now 54. I think that that it is a tad too old to be carrying on like this. I think ’50’ is a good, respectable age to settle down.

Then, my main beef. IF you are going to have an affair and get a divorce AT LEAST do it with a YOUNG woman — or with his unprecedented wealth 2 or 3 young women! Jeez. She is 49. 49. Jeff, what are YOU thinking. You should have got yourself TWO 24 year olds.

And … sending pictures of your — supposedly BIG — genitals. Jeff …. That is not on. A 54-year old man does NOT sent pictures of his genitals — however, huge — to a 49-year old MARRIED woman.

Oh, that is the OTHER thing. Jeff … why a married woman … and OLD one at that. At your age and with your wealth.

I am disappointed Jeff. I expected better from YOU.

Those pictures?

How can YOU face your staff. You could be worth $1T but will people ever respect YOU again.

Poor show Jeff. You might be the smartest man alive — and definitely the richest — but you let yourself down BADLY.

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos Is Building A 500′, 10,000-Year Clock To Promote Long-Term Thinking!

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE and gain the highlights here. From CNBC. Google for this or much more from numerous sources.




This is so cool. Just the kind of thing we have now come to expect from the mega-brilliant Bezos.

This, though it will cost him $42 million, is NOT even petty cash to him these days — Amazon stock is doing so well. The total cost to build this giant clock is more, but Jeff, with his $42M is the largest benefactor.

Appears that they have been talking about such a clock since 1984. A prototype for this clock, built in 1999, is now on display at the Science Museum in London.

Will Amazon Stock Take A Hit From The Weinstein Stories — Especially Now That It Is Above $1,000 Again.

by Anura Guruge

From what I can deduce, AMZN crossed the $1,000 mark, for the first time in weeks, on Thursday, October 12, 2017, before these stories gained much currency.

Now the question and concern is whether these and others like it will take a toll on the stock price.

To be fair, Amazon, and Jeff Bezos, tend to be Teflon-coated. Plus we are coming up to Amazon’s third quarter earnings report — believed to be on October 26, 2017. Basically 2 weeks from now. Customarily the stock will climb, as much as $40 to $100, leading up to earnings. Then the fun begins.

So, the desire to get into AMZN prior to earnings may override any negatives from these stories.

Just giving you a heads up.

Today, September 4, 2017, Is Google’s 18th Birthday — It Is Now ‘Of Age’.

by Anura Guruge



Click to ENLARGE and read here. Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google


Wow, Larry Page and Sergey Brin incorporated Google on September 4, 1998, while still postgraduate students at Stanford. One of their early, Angel investors was Jeff Bezos of Amazon! No wonder he is so rich. I don’t recall seeing any mention, of late, that Jeff Bezos is still an investor. He most likely is, in which case we have a Google — Amazon relationship that I have never heard talked about by financial gurus.

The domain name ‘google.com‘, with “google” per se a misspelling of “googol“, i.e., 10 to the power of 100, September 15, 1997 — just under a year ahead of the incorporation.

I guess Larry and Sergey had NOT Googled “September 4” to realize that it was “E-Day”, for Edsel, a day remembered for spectacular failures. I guess Google proved that wrong.

Amazon Stockholders Should Sue Donald Trump For Unethically Causing Stock Price To Drop.

by Anura Guruge


Click image to access ‘Market Watch’ original.


I commented on this, ALREADY, yesterday itself, as it happened!



Donald Trump’s ‘no-tax’ claims against Amazon (AMZN) are BOGUS.

As of April 2017 Amazon is collecting Internet sales tax on shipments to ALL states that have a sales tax. That is an irrefutable fact. So for Trump to claim that Amazon has a ‘no-tax monopoly’ is wrong.

But his bellicose rantings is hurting Amazon, the AMZN stock price and Amazon shareholders — and I am one of them. I am NOT happy.

This is wrong.

I would be OK if he was not lying. This is illegal stock price manipulation.

Jeff Bezos should help us get a lawsuit going.

Trump’s gripe is really NOT against Amazon. He, irrationally, is MAD at the ‘Washington Post‘ but rails against Amazon because Jeff Bezos owns both Amazon and ‘The Washington Post’.

Donald Trump Continues His FALSE Narrative That Amazon Does Not Charge Sales Tax.

Today’s, i.e., August 16, 2017 tweet — post Charlottesville, VA ramblings.

This is essentially FAKE NEWS and Trump should know it is FAKE unless he really is even more ill informed and confused than we realize.

As of April 2017 Amazon is collecting Internet sales tax on shipments to ALL states that have a sales tax. That is an irrefutable fact. So for Trump to claim that Amazon has a ‘no-tax monopoly’ is wrong.

Yes, prior to April 2017, Amazon like so many other online retailers did not collect (and handover) sales tax to states that had such a tax. But, Amazon did not have a monopoly and the whole issue of Internet-tax has yet to be fully thrashed out yet.

So, yes, it is true that Amazon in the past was ‘no-tax’.

And yes it is still true that Amazon does NOT force 3rd-party sellers on Amazon from charging sales tax. It probably should to be consistent and avoid Trump having a sliver of an excuse.

Well, as I said just a few days ago, Trump’s vendetta against the Jeff Bezos owned ‘The Washington Post’ could BEGIN to harm Amazon — though AMZN hit an all time HIGH on Monday!
