AMZN Priced for Perfection: Should Investors Worry?
In its Q4 report, the concern for Amazon seems to be its growing expenses and what appear to be shrinking margins. The company has always demonstrated a commitment to tackle new markets and seek growth opportunities. To that end, it had taken on facilities expansion in an effort to provide broader ranges of entertainment delivered over its new Kindle Fire tablet as well as the launching of its movie-streaming Prime service to compete with Netflix(NFLX) .
The stock (then) took a pounding on the announcement. Wall Street wants growth and lots of it. But it seems that many analysts as well as investors do not appreciate the fact that such tremendous growth comes at tremendous cost. Leading into the company's Q1 earnings report, I was eager to see if Amazon can help avert my concerns of perfection.
