    Anytime you argue with Wall Street you will loose your tail.

    Amazon is on self destructive path to obscurity.

    Key challenge is fraudulent system which destroys competitiveness, eliminates sellers, small sellers and forces the once which want to sell to become enslaved in fulfillment system.

    This is wrong road and that is why Wall Street is right and Amazon is paying so dearly.

    Next stop AMZN 138, than 80 and 20 within one year.
