He didn't keep that crown for long as Amazon missed their numbers!

Not directly, although I have a US tracker fund, so hopefully some in there!

what numbers did they miss?

and yes, if the tracker includes Nasdaq shares then you will do.

i'm relatively long-term into Amazon now, with no plans to sell.

I honestly can't remember exactly what focus that fund has; generally I have a well balanced portfolio of various funds -- meaning that when one part of it is rising, another part is usually falling -- overall it goes nowhere!

and that's the key.. I'm comfortable invested in Amazon rather than a US tracker.
