Betting against Amazon post-Black Friday and during what is really ‘Cyber Week’, rather than just Cyber Monday, is PLAIN STUPID.

You know, and I know, that Amazon is making out like a bandit.

Others might do well, but in the end Amazon would still have done better.

Why bet against Amazon (AMZN) to YOUR detriment.

Today’s 1.9% drop should be a buying opportunity.

Amazon will go past $800 before the year is out AND ahead of the Fed’s, inevitable (spite Trump), December rate increase.

This is not the time to sell. Wait for it t0 get to $800+ — then sell JUST ahead of the December Federal Reserve meeting December 13 – 14, 2016.

But for now … BUY, BUY, BUY AMZN.

Full disclosure: I own AMZN and I am very long.

Amazon Rather Than Leasing More Cargo Planes Should Buy UPS, Possibly FedEx.

Though I have always, as for as long as I can recall, been a huge fan of Amazon, and as of 2011 used them for ALL of my book publishing, it is only this year, as a fully-paid up Amazon Prime member and an AMZN stockholder that I truly started to see that Amazon is invincible — at least over the next few years. These days I am just in total awe of Amazon. Like Google they really are at the top of their game.

Click to ENLARGE. Guess what line is UPS and what is AMZN.

Given the amount of online shopping that I do with Amazon, 88 orders in the last 6 months (i.e., 14 orders a month), I know their shipping habits pretty well and, moreover, I keep them honest. IF they miss the 2-day shipping on a Prime item I call them up. So far I have had 2 months of FREE Prime and $10 of gift credit. While they do quite well with UPS outside of the Christmas window, Christmas is always a challenge — as is the number of items now getting shipped directly from China, outside of Prime. I know that AMZN dearly wants to fix that. 

That they are thinking of doing some of their own shipping has been an open secret for months. Makes a lot of sense.

But to me what would make sense is for them to buy (or merge with) UPS or FedEx. I am sure UPS shareholders would LOVE IT. Their shares have been going nowhere while AMZN keeps on defying gravity. Also in terms of Market Cap AMZN is 4 times that of UPS and 8 times that of FedEx.

There will be synergies PLUS Amazon can get a piece of the eBay action! Sweet. Talking of which I am surprised that AMZN hasn’t started offering auctions. They could kill eBay (and I own eBay shares too).

So just a thought.

We all got up at 4 a.m. to see Comet ISON and the others!

Us getting up that early, especially I, does not happen often.

I knew we were taking a chance. Weather forecasts don’t typically tell you cloud conditions for 4 a.m.

But we went up Prospect Mountain to Ridge Road — where in April we saw Pan-STARRS.

There were breaks in the cloud cover. We could clearly see the Big Dipper and Jupiter.

But the clouds (and possibly fog) was worst low down, by the horizon. So we were foiled. Thwarted.
It was cold too.

We might try again Saturday morning.

But, here is the MAP for New Hampshire for the Comets.
I hand ‘drew’ it for you in PowerPoint.

It is no great secret that I set out to OWN ‘Comet ISON’ when it came to books.

Well check this out. This is what Amazon showed if you did a search on ‘Comet ISON‘ (for books).

#1, #2 & #3.

Didn’t make me rich or famous BUT as achievements for a year go, this is far more satisfying, far reaching and fun that serving on some ‘going nowhere‘ town committee.
