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.

I hear you on this, I got in late 2014 (sorry, don't mean to play "mine's bigger") and plan to hold long term. I'm starting to fear it's only a matter of time until Elon gets charged and removed from power by the SEC though. Maybe that's not a bad thing?

You could be right, he always makes me nervous, and I’m honestly astonished TSLA’s taken off the way it has, i think it’s in a lot of ways in spite of him, as opposed to becuase of him.


And the only reason i love talking about my Tesla stock is becuase it’s literally the ONLY good investment I’ve ever made, so i’m ride or die with it at this point.

Same her, I thought I had learned all about the pump and dumps in college, who knew I would once again be learning about it again this late in life.

I havent been able to find good info on this, but why is PBW falling? Looks like most green energy is taking a hit.

Is it the texas misinformation? Or something unrelated? There has been massive price growth across the sector. Is this profiting and correction?

Most of the market is taking a hit today (much like yesterday). Red everywhere.

Yeah, but green is down like 4-6%. Market is down about 1% so far.
The only thing I can see is that it's an overreaction to what those imbeciles in Texas said about green energy. Use this opportunity to buy more, if possible.
