Amazon is a behemoth of a company. They are the world’s biggest online retailer by a long shot. Their revenue is roughly 105 billion. Yet, the barely make a profit. Their gross profits were only about 500 million for the year last year and that only got them earnings per share of $1.28. And, this is what is really eyebrow raising, their stock is trading at $800 per share. I had to look and relook at that about seven times until it finally sunk in.
