    The public cares about one thing....what they are buying. Analysts and columnists are the ones who look for dirt, etc.

    Say what you want, 95% of the public doesn't trust or care about what you think. I own AMZN shares and will continue to hold them, for the reasons stated above.

    Example: person goes by a gas station and sees the price is down. They don't say to themselves,"I wonder what the price of oil is today[has it dropped]?
