i don't think you've used your word properly AAAT.. despite your apparent proudness :)
I'll have re-think next time. I checked it up on thesaurus.com and it was word I had never seen before. The examples were a bit confusing. I thought I would give it a try.

I shall try harder next time.

that says something about you AAAT.. i'm not quite sure what it is though..

anyway, back to topic, with US unemployment at 17%+, the highest since the 30s, the retail landscape is going to become increasingly bleak here too.. and Amazon continues to do well.

And Amazon still allows fake goods to be sold there. I take great care what I buy via them

Looks like a perfect storm in Amazon's favour.

it does.. the share price pulled back when it was announced they would plough all of the quarterly profits back into the business to cope with the effects of the virus. but that's fine by me. i'm a long term holder. that said, if there was a really significant surge from this point i'd be tempted to fold into one of the funds i'm holding to lock in the profit.

The only thing standing in Amazon's path is the growing calls for regulation and the splitting up of the business.

agreed. although i've heard it suggested that the sum of the separate parts would be greater. arguably the same with Alphabet too.
