this is the first time amazon has actually missed earnings so investors are spooked. It's not a big miss though, and most of their numbers are still phenomenal. Prime memberships continue to sell like crazy, and AWS is operating with insanely good margins
>>1066972 a high or a non-existent/negative P/E ratio could be justified for manufacturing companies that are just getting started and are expected to see a huge growth in sales and profits. but these software and e-commerce companies which have already been established... it's ridiculous. like spotify are looking to raise 500 million dollars from investors. they already have a 45% market share and are operating at a huge loss, it's fucking pathetic. what they're doing isn't exactly rocket science either. i will probably never invest in anything that's primarily software-based because i'm a software developer myself and i can tell you that most people are very bad at making software and even if they were good at it then it's still easy for competitors to copy it. just the fact that spotify forces you to listen to songs through their shit filter with no option of turning it off is enough for me to not use their service let alone invest in their company.
>>1067227 they modify the songs so that they are equal in volume... which wouldn't be too much of a problem if they weren't equally as LOUD which is a no-no if you care about audio fidelity as the loudness introduces distortion due to the limited dynamic range of digital sound. deezer is even worse at this, like compared to google play music (which i might actually end up paying for, although they have far worse automatically generated music playlists) you will have to turn the volume down quite a bit on spotify and deezer to get the same perceived volume as on google play music or with plain music files.
>>1067730 obviously if your only product is shit then something is flawed
they used to have a setting to turn it on/off but they removed that features like years ago
i would consider subscribing to spotify premium if they restored this feature but nope they sure seem to like bleeding money and the execs don't give a shit because they get ludicrously rich regardless of what happens
lmfao just because it has a lower forward P/E ratio than fucking netflix doesn't mean it's a good investment
look at fingerprint cards for a better comparison. it has a forward P/E ratio of around 10-12 and it's extremely likely to grow high percentages (not thousands of percent but tens or hundreds of percent) in the upcoming years. synaptics which is a murrican competitor to fingerprint has around the same forward P/E (off the top of my head) but the difference is that synaptics is shrinking (due to losing customers to fingerprint) and fingerprint is growing like crazy due to having the superior technology, patents, performance and price per performance.
>“The stock is up 375x since the IPO in 1997 and the company continues doing what it has been doing from the beginning — driving growth and market share to maximize long-term operating profit and free cash flow dollars,” said Stifel analyst Scott Devitt, who has a buy rating and $750 price target on the stock. “Should we now start debating whether it is over this time or just buy the dip and move on to more legitimate debates?” nice argument scott lmao wtf
you're generally better off doing the exact opposite of what the analysts tell you. that all the analysts and brokerages are bullish should be a warning sign and an indicator that the stock is overbought.
>>1067202 you go to one of the big stock market companies on the net set up an account depending on which stock market company, you may have to deposit some initial funds or connect a checking account sometimes they wave the fee for a while, but expect around 7.95 per stock trade/purchase eventually.
