There aren’t a lot of easy decisions in the world of stonks, but loading up on AMZN when it was below $3000 last month was a no-brainer.

Oh yes. Went to the bank on that one.

Man it is probably going to be ugly if they don't announce a split.  May completely negate (and then some) a huge blowout quarter.

Bezos stepping down as CEO basically negated last quarter’s blowout. It would be dumb but oh well.

Stocktwits is amazing on days like today

"Give me a split so I can increase my ownership."

Wha?

I said it before, I think a ton people think that splits give them free shares somehow. It’s the same people who applauded GME after the dilution was done. It’s part of the reason why I’d have trouble investing in Tesla. A huge part of their 2020 run up was getting into the S&P and splitting. They still haven’t made a profit from operations, they are mainly selling the lower margin cars and I’ve seen people post about Musk’s other businesses like SpaceX as if they are part of Tesla. I just worry that one day those investors will stop buying every dip, walk somewhere else and then the real numbers take over.

I don’t want to say that’s a dumb comparison but isn’t GDP more equivalent to sales (not market cap which is a multiple of sales or earnings) and if so what price to sales multiple do countries get?

Also, these companies are a wee bit more profitable than countries.

Seems to me like a weird random comparison that means nothing.

It's mind-blowing the value of these 4 companies.

I got a Han Solo-esque bad feeling about this supposed split announcement.

Starting to get that feeling like I'm 100% getting laid tonight but my wife keeps drinking and it has become apparent she's going to pass out immediately after going to bed.

Maybe.  But I'm not sure how that comparison of apples to suspension bridges says anything of the sort.

Fair enough. This tweet sounds way cooler than comparing apples and oranges though.

So if they didn't announce the split pre Q&A they probably aren't going to do it, right?  Surely that's not something they'd announce as the answer to a question.

Q: Are you guys doing a split or what?

A: (slaps forehead.) ####, sorry, completely forgot about that in the whirlwind of PRINTING ####### RACKS ON TOP OF RACKS, YO!

So many boring JPM and Jeffries guys asking these boring questions on the AMZN call.  WSBs should get a rep that gets to ask one question as well so someone can put them on the spot about a possible split in the future with Bezos out.

Was waiting for a ***Breaking News*** throw to Gene Munster to announce the split.  :kicksrock:

 

The good news is made a small fortune on my 35 shares of AMZN today.

What an awesome week.  :thumbup:

 

Is it too much to ask the markets to rise 2% tomorrow? (End of month accounting, it would be nice to make the next benchmark) :whistle:
