Need Commentary: Pros and Cons of Buying Amazon (AMZN) Stock

Looking for some quick insights on the major pros and cons to AMZN stock. Email commentary is preferred, but a short, focused phone call is also possible. Here are the pros and cons I’ll focus on in my article: Pros: 1) One of the smartest, most effective, innovative CEOs on the planet in Bezos. 2) Willingness to disrupt & iterate. Will enter any industry, usually after letting others take initial risk and see how it works. 3) AWS is cash machine. Cons: 1) Leaning too much on Bezos & AWS? If either one goes, the company goes. 2) Valuation. Amazon isn’t particularly profitable. Under-earning. 3) Potential for regulation.
