Rumors that Amazon was looking into offering a live TV package as well, have now been confirmed.

Amazon creating live TV package - Business Insider
The rumor

confirmed.

No details on the pricing or offereings yet.

With Amazon getting into this arena, pushing the boundaries on retail, cloud services, etc. I really do wonder how large they can grow. As long as they keep their laser focus on customer service, speed and cost, I think they can do a lot.

I'm very glad I was able to buy a few shares a while back while it was trading in the $700's... or course, I wish I did this a year or two before when they were in the $400-500 range. Wow.

Today they hit $998/share ad are now hovering around $996.

Holy Cow what a rebound!

The jobs number is incredible. The U.S. added 312,000 new jobs in December. Expectation was for a gain of 182,000, according to many of economists. Wages are growing too.
Not sure what the Fed is going to do but I suspect that the market has adjusted to the recent rate hikes and accepts the need.

I just don’t see a recession on the horizon but I keep hearing about it...
Powell remarked the Fed will do what it needs to ( regarding the economy ) and that buoyed the market early.

Yeah, for a billionaire's wife, she's pretty attractive. And will be very very rich.

I don't think he's going to have to divest from AMZN though. From what I read, some divorce lawyers who specialize in this stratosphere say by divesting his shares, he'd lose control, thus devaluing the assets. It's in her best interest to allow him to control/run the company. more value long term.

I think she'll get nearly half his shares but he'll get proxy over them. He'll probably be allowed to buy them back over time. His wife isn't stupid. She's already going to be the richest woman in the world after this is over. No need to kill the golden goose.

Either way, I don't see this really affecting Amazon in the long term unless it gets ugly.

To change the subject, while I've owned my vested VMware stock for a while, I've never actually bought other individual stocks until a couple of days go when I bought my first. I took a few thousand from the divident VMware paid me and bought a couple cannabis stocks. I bought into Tilray and Canopy Growth. These are long term investments (at least a year) and I'm not hurting myself (beyond my pride) it they go south. I think there is still a lot of instability in the weed market but I also think there is a huge upside to it over the next few years.

I’ve gained almost everything back from the last dip. I’m within 2400 dollars of my high in October. I think this is why it’s so hard to time the market. Before you can react it rebounds.

Unless there’s a real recession, these corrections seem to move pretty quickly.
