Do you remember in rollercoaster tycoon when you kept taking out loans and making a sick park by raising and lower land and building rollercoasters and every once and a while you'd chill and go alright I'm growing like a madcunt and I'll make money if I stop and then keep taking loans to make it bigger
>>923376 They're spending huge sums of money trying to dominate in a ton of different areas at the moment.
They are pushing amazon prime hard and bundled it with their foray into netflix's territory of providing streamable entertainment. Along with a bunch of features such as amazon pantry trying to get people to order all their foodstuffs and basically 100% of everything they buy via amazon and that's very expensive.
It's all very risky and I don't think the move will pay off. Although the amazon prime free trial lasts a year and then charges some massive sum of money and they started beefing it up with all their free content (including the one thing netflix is missing, HBO content) and all their other features around 8 months ago I think. So it might be in a few months they rake in some massive income from all the people who signed up thinking they would cancel by the end of the year and forgot. It's like 100 dollars so if they have 10 million people signed up that's a cool billion.
>>923376 Amazon hasn't made money in 20 years. Why should they now when the stock is high? For 20 years wall street has believed that amazon has "no infrastructure costs" and therefore it would be some enormous monopoly with a high profit margin. In reality, any company with low infrastructure costs is going to have fierce competition if the margins are high which will drive profits way down. Amazon may never yield a profit and if it does then it'll be extremely small.
For every success they seem to have wasted a lot of money of development, both good and bad. It's like a kid who uses all his lego on the up ramp of a rollercoaster knowing the bigger the up ramp is the bigger the fun bit will be. But never gets to the fun bit and carries on building the up ramp.
If they actually stopped the bullshit for a year and took in a profit the price would soar.
The ceo, jeff bezos, hates paying taxes, so all profit is invested in the company to avoid paying taxes on profit. He says investors should look at free cash flow to get an idea of how well the company is doing.
