What I like to do heading into earnings is rather than buy puts – which are expensive as implied volatility [or the price of options] gets quickly elevated … let's go ahead and sell [a call spread].feedback

Todd Gordon

Much of the broader indices are breaking through the summer 2017 highs, whereas Amazon is clearly off the high. Amazon hit a record high in July but has since fallen more than 9 percent, putting it in correction territory. Meanwhile, Facebook, Alphabet and Netflix hit new highs last

Investor focus remains on operating income with the view that guidance is likely to fall below sell-side consensus of $1.5bn. We expect the company to guide total revenue +26-34% yoy with $0mn to $1.0bn in GAAP operating profits, as guidance factors in the Whole Foods acquisition, [Amazon Web Services] growth accelerates modestly on an 800bps easier comp, and both revenue and expenses reflect the investments in new fulfillment centers and AWS

The market remains very challenging for value investing strategies, as growth stocks have continued to outperform value stocks. The persistence of this dynamic leads to questions regarding whether value investing is a viable strategy. Tesla had an awful quarter both in its current results and future prospects. In response, its shares fell almost 6%. We believe it deserved much

If someone is sexually harassing you, someone else is getting harassed, too. I was thinking about this in the Harvey Weinstein case – they had a different situation. They were actresses, freelancers, each coming in one by one, and didn't necessarily know each other. I could understand why they felt so vulnerable and had no one to talk

Both to work on a show that had something to say about feminism and equality, and also to work on a show that had three female leads, who are all different people, not perfect people, but multi-dimensional.

That's one of the scarier ones. How cheap does it have to be in retail to decide you're going to wade into that? Some of those companies are companies that will be permanently gone. We're very cautious in that

This crowd is its own worst enemy. “The Trump administration has undermined its case for a corporate tax cut by exaggerating the benefits of its overall tax package. For example, the assertion by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin that a Republican leadership tax plan would generate $2 trillion of additional tax revenue over the next 10 years through economic growth would very likely be proven false.”.feedback

Heading into Amazon's 3Q results, we expect strong top-line growth to continue, especially in retail where Amazon has been aggressively investing in fulfillment facilities and content to improve the overall value to consumers / Prime members. We remain bullish on the name as a core long-term holding with the largest TAM [total addressable market] of any company we cover and strong long term

Doug Anmuth - JPMorgan Chase & Co

Going forward we expect Whole Foods Market revenue to accelerate. We believe Amazon is well positioned as the market leader in eCommerce … We believe Amazon continues to show strong ability to take share of overall eCommerce, and its flexibility in pushing first-party vs. third-party inventory and its Prime offering both serve as major

Before Narcos, before The Crown, before Netflix CEO Reed Hastings ever thought of making series outside the U.S., there was another big American broadcaster already out there, digging deep in high-end TV.

That strategy is going to be a net positive. The economic impacts of smarter, more compact growth are well known compared with more decentralized growth. Cities may be viewing this as a loss leader.

We believe the stock has recently come under some pressure due to stories of Amazon developing an activewear line.

We need to make sure that Amazon commits to clear and enforceable benefits to any community they would move into. It has to be the right fit, not just for the company but for the entire community.

Corporate entities need to have clauses in all employment contracts that if you are found to have committed sexual harassment, you are terminated.

If you look at the small business hierarchy needs, they need access to cash, funds, they need time, and they need more sales.

It's a two-man race now, but one stock sells for 234 times earnings [and] the other sells for 19 times earnings. Granted, no major money manager is going to sell Amazon; it's too hot, it's too good.

Which is why I think the stock of Wal-Mart, even after this miraculous run, is not finished going

I'll end at an ebook page at home, take my Kindle Oasis into the car, pair it via Bluetooth and then hit play and it picks up the audiobook right where I left off in the ebook. I can then roll through a couple of chapters in the audiobook on the commute, then take the device back home and flip back to ebook mode, and it knows exactly which location I left off to start reading

It is clear that Wal-Mart intends to continue to turn up the heat online, with 40 percent annual growth an impressive goal, especially on the heels of the 30 percent outlined at the 2016 investor meeting, which at the time seemed aspirational in our

We do not seem to agree, we considered that there was no state aid on our side, there was no selective advantage that was given to the company we are talking about. We are going to review all our possibilities and eventually appeal. The decision has not been taken. We shouldn't look at a situation that happened 10 or 15 years ago with the eyes of

Unattended delivery is the least desirable of last-mile fulfillment options as it leaves the package exposed to all kinds of risk, . It's not just the financial cost but also the impact that a failed delivery can have on brand reputation and customer loyalty. Nothing makes shoppers more irate than missing a

[According to] some interesting statistics not only that we see, but also through the Timeshare Trade Association and the American Resort Development Association, the number of Gen X, Gen Y and millennials continues to grow as a percentage of the new-owner buyers that are coming into the

Does this make any sense? You know what, I don't even know anymore. Here's all I ask. The highest valued stocks are now making the big moves – 'highest valued' meaning the highest price-to-earnings, highest price-to-sales [multiples] – so I'm begging you to do something for me: if you're going to own these stocks ... please know what you're

In this market, once Amazon locks its phasers on you, nothing's ever going to be the same. So down $10's not enough to immunize Costco's stock from further declines. The reality is Amazon's efforts are putting a lid on Costco's stock and they've taken away the

When a high-quality stock like Celgene gets slammed but the underlying thesis is still intact, I think you need to do some buying. Celgene's building a stable of multi-billion-dollar drugs, it's got fabulous management, and [blood cancer treatment] Revlimid's patent protection will likely hold up, so don't let this Morgan Stanley analyst scare you out of a good story, especially when that analyst sat out the whole run with a hold on the stock, which is not what I'd call

Jim Cramer

After digging into this story, I think the pros do outweigh the cons, although I'm obviously not alone in believing that, as the stock surged from $17, where it came public today, up to $20.84. That's a 22 percent gain right out of the gate. Which begs the question: is Switch worth owning even after today's monster move?feedback

I am urging you to be careful. At this point, the odds do favor a pullback. It could give you a better chance to buy. Notice I'm not saying, Sell.' I'm just saying I want you to be ready. Here's the CliffNotes version of this call: millennials don't like to go to Costco. They'd rather go to Amazon. Membership growth isn't as robust among younger people, so the aging of its core demographic – 52 is the average – will, in the end, mean that Costco's stock is no longer a bargain no matter

Jake Dollarhide - Longbow Asset Management

It's been amazing how resilient our U.S. stock market has been, going up on no news or bad news, so there's no surprise on a day where most people feel it was a mixed jobs report at best that the market actually is reacting in a way that makes sense. It's a logical move for this illogical stock

Keith Schoonmaker - Morningstar

I think it's important to frame UPS' and FedEx's exposure to Amazon. UPS says that no customer constitutes 10 percent of its revenue, and FedEx says no one constitutes three percent of its revenue. We would gauge earnings exposure more like mid-single digits to UPS and maybe 2 percent for FedEx. I lived in downtown Chicago in a dense neighborhood full of high rises, and I've had Amazon deliveries by Amazon independent contractors for probably two years now. So this is nothing new – that Amazon is taking some ownership of their

The vast majority of FedEx's business is business to business. Eighty-five percent-plus of our business has nothing to do with e-commerce. So Amazon's a wonderful company and they certainly have revolutionized the e-commerce world, and we're not sure what Amazon's going to do one way or another. But the FedEx system that consists of thousands of facilities and the ability to pick up, transport, and deliver in one to two business days between any two addresses in the United States has been decades in the making. And we think that we have not a great risk of being disrupted, to use the

Colin Sebastian

Given the investments that Amazon is making in fulfillment infrastructure and transportation to support its own retail business, we view it simply a matter of time until they offer these services to third parties more broadly. This is the same strategy that Amazon has successfully utilized in retail (third party marketplace) and technology (AWS) where they offer as a service the same platforms built to run their
