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

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.

If You Use WordPress ‘WordAds’ Best To Check Your July & August Numbers.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE if you are curious.

If you are lucky enough to be subscribed to WordPress‘ ‘WordAds‘ and you check your numbers on a regular basis you may have realized that things have been slightly “off kilter” of late — especially the last two months.

Not sure what the full story is. You may have noticed that the August numbers were unusually late — i.e., getting posted a few days into October, when typically they would have posted them by the last day of the following month (i.e., September, in this case).

Well, my August numbers, when they were eventually posted did not look right. Defied logic, math and physics.

So after stewing on it for a couple of days I contacted the WordPress online support — via chat.

Initially they gave me the usual palava about how earnings aren’t directly correlated to ‘ad impressions’. Then they ran out of steam and realized that the waffle wasn’t working.

So they said they would contact their friends at “WordAds”.

Five minutes later they tell me to check my numbers. Wow! A FAIRLY LARGE CHANGE. Wow.

Am I glad that I questioned. No explanation as to why my numbers were hiked on the fly.


My past experience was that “WordAds” paid within days — though they reserve the right to pay you 30-45 days in arrears. Not so this time.


Things just seemed to have changed and not for the better.

Hope things go back to normal soon.
