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.

He's reading it wrong. That lot took the price from 193.66 to 194.49. That's an increase of .83/share.
Still, how does an order that large get filled all at once? Someone else must have been selling that volume for there to be a buyer?

I stopped reading Motley Fool. I'd track things after reading their articles and usually the market performed the exact opposite of what they were saying.
Yep, that's why I recommend not using them as a sole source of info. They put out some good stuff every now and then. And their reasoning isn't all bad. But as with a lot of things related to investing, you want to utilize multiple sources of info to guide investing decisions. And ultimately, the decisions have to be your own, or your advisor's if you go that route.

I'm beginning to suspect it's either a photoshop or it's not accurate. I've pulled up all of the after hours trading activity so far today and there's nothing approaching that number. See chart below. I've sorted by volume, highest on down.

So buying 235,000 shares increased the share price by 83 cents.

But then selling just 56 shares right afterwards dropped it by 69 cents?

As DFV said. The price is wrong.

Oh, I’m for sure riding it out for the next few decades.. i mean, i got in at $42, so my hope is that TSLA will be like when you hear people say “If you had bought IBM in 1979” or “If you had bought AAPL in 1984” or something along those lines.. the small amount i own will never make me a multi-millionaire, but maybe when I’m retired it’ll be enough to put a substantial down payment on a condo near a beach somewhere, that’s all I’m hoping for.. well, that and to identify the “next Tesla stock” lol.
Im just spitballing. I think there are a few stocks that will be valued like a bitcoin. I’m not a financial advisor. But here are my guesses:

Amazon/ Apple / Microsoft / NDVA / TSLA /GME

It's not wrong. Same thing can be said about every single stock in the market. My personal favorite is Live Nation. They are 30% above prepandemic all time high.
Retail investing is at an all time high. Financials matter. You looked at financials because you know Hedge Funds look at financials. So you ride that wave.

We are absolutely in an era of “We like the stock”.

Actually, the price wasn't wrong. The trade didn't happen. Either that or it was a glitch. But I'm going with it didn't happen.

Edit: See post 6037.

That's part of it. But, a big factor is that there's just a crap ton of money that has been sitting on the sidelines and waiting to get invested. It's gotta go somewhere.

My GME and AMC puts are soaring. Probably the easiest trade I've made in my lifetime. I almost feel guilty taking advantage of people buying a pump scheme based off of shadow twitter accounts. My $8 GME July puts are going to be my favorite though.

I love the Wild Wild West of the OTC market. I'm up 333% in total on $TGGI since buying shares last week.

I would sell those AMC puts soon if I were you. Don't get greedy.

I've been obsessively studying the technicals on this stock....this is not a pump and dump. There truly is a massive squeeze set to occur, and it could pop-off any day now. The squeeze on AMC could potentially make GME look like a pink sheet stock.

It's a different play than GME in many ways, and most of it has to do with synthetic shares than have made the short interest appearance not come close to showing its accurate percentage.

how did you dig that one up?
I saw rumors related to this information last week. Click on the tweet to see the whole thread. As with any OTC stock, it's a gamble but I like what I've read so far.
