Amazon vs. the States of America

Listen now on Fool.com

On today’s edition of MarketFoolery, the daily podcast from The Motley Fool, we discuss the following topics:

  • Anyone want to buy Hulu? The Internet video site is reportedly considering an offer. So which company would make the most sense to buy Hulu?  Netflix (Nasdaq: NFLX  ) ? Yahoo! (Nasdaq: YHOO  ) ? One of our analysts makes the case for why DISH Network (Nasdaq: DISH  ) should make the move. 
  • Shares of FedEx (NYSE: FDX  ) were up today after the company posted better-than-expected earnings. Will FedEx prove to be a bellwether for the economy?
  • California and Texas are just two of the states actively considering the so-called "Amazon tax," aimed at collecting sales taxes on goods sold by online retailers. How much would the tax hurt Amazon.com's (Nasdaq: AMZN  ) bottom line? Our analysts discuss Amazon's state-by-state war to keep taxes low.
