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.

At some point I need to buy into big tech. Rode the wave a few years ago then took profits and since they just keep looking overvalued and keep overperforming.

same here. only tech im holding at the moment is MSFT. Im getting my booty crushed on BYND, ATT is well, ATT and im sitting on a load of cash.

I was hoping that we would have seen a correction by now, but its just not coming. So disheartening to continually get caught up in the "selling" of a stock instead of holding long term.

BYND had a bad day because of Wal-Mart announcing big deal with Impossible. To me a new industry moving into these massive companies snd countries just shows the direction everything is moving.

No comment on ATT.

Futures were up huge earlier and now they are almost flat. If the markets can't rally tomorrow after the earnings sweep this afternoon then it's concerning.

FAANG stocks are holding up the market today.
Gold miner stocks are doing well. Bought SVXY yesterday on the run down, sold it this morning and hopped back into NUGT and UGL.

Kodak puts were easy money. Just sold my $22 put I took out when KOKD was at $54. That pays for the $17, $15, $10, $5 and $2.50 puts I also took out. I'll let the rest ride with house money going for the full implosion of the stock. Had enough money left over to buy a $32 call for the straddle so I'll make money either way.

I'd hate to see where the markets would be right now without FANG stocks.

And don't I look stupid for selling at $374 earlier this week? $21k profit but now i so wish I had stayed in.

Oh well I guess I'll pick up some more after the split. DOH!
ppsssshhhh i sold in a paltry low 200s ( picked up in the 160s ) back in 2019 because it wasnt performing as well as i had hoped lolol

ooof.

and im almost certain this will not be the last story i have like this. ( AMZN sold in Feb on stop loss - never picked up more shares )

Kinda kicking myself for not jumping on the AMZN bandwagon back when.

I think I'll go take a nap haha.

BYND got into the other two major wholesale spots.. BJ's and Samsclub (already in Costco). Nice pop today.

NVDA with a huge pop and growing.

The New York State Teachers’ Retirement System trimmed investments in Apple and Intel stock in the second quarter. The pension also bought more Nvidia and AbbVie stock.
