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

https://www.usatoday.com/videos/tech/2017/05/23/amazon-prime-now-let-you-watch-tv-live/102046756/

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.

Im now a bit concerned if McDonalds US follows suit, but short term concern. Long term growth is still forecasted to be strong and im not looking 1-2 months ahead, but 1-2 years.

I kind of saw this coming but didn't put it together until now. McDonalds has ripped almost half of their items off the menu to improve drive thru times by 25 seconds. When sit down restaurants are closed or people don't want to go in them combined with higher than average demand at the drive thru it's easy to see how they aren't interested in a covid environment.

I think that tune will change when the focus switches from Covid to climate.

Big hit to BYND, McDonald's trial was not successful and will not carry the brand.
I have tried the beyond burger and beyond sausage at Hardees. Both sucked, imo.
The impossible burger at BK was actually good.

Based on this vast experience of product, I would avoid beyond.:cool:

I do both for my BiL who is full vegan during Thanksgiving when in town.

I did both on the pit....both were really quite good imo. I tried Gardien too- terrible - soy based.

I know Impossible Foods adds a bit to its burgers to give it "juice" akin to a beef patty would.

VXRT up over 100% today, wow. I try stay up on Fierce Pharma newsletters but not always (that is a lot of reading), so I went back to the Fierce website and searched for articles pertaining to Vaxart to see if I missed anything significant that would have tipped me off, but there was not much, bummer. I will have to expand my reading material...

I kind of expected a stronger dip during the day, but VXRT really kept chugging, and is now up an additional 25% in pre-market. I am apprehensive about going in now after that tremendous run.

I'm not touching it.

I just stepped in front of train and shorted gap after a 40% run up on news of partnership with Kanye West.

Bed Bath and Beyond has been rolling even into the markets selling. Time for me to step out though. Was a nice 20% pop in a few days.

SP getting close to the 200 day moving average. If it breaks through then watch out below. It sits near 3021.
