The Next Big Battle in Retail

With Best Buy and Target promising price-match guarantees against online competition, and Amazon.com (NASDAQ: AMZN  )  now collecting sales taxes in more states, "showrooming" might officially be over.

At the same time, eBay (NASDAQ: EBAY  ) and Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT  )  are testing out innovative new delivery options in their fight against Amazon. The Motley Fool's Alison Southwick asks contributor Demitrios Kalogeropoulos for his thoughts on the brewing same-day-delivery battle, and on which companies seem best positioned to deliver the goods.

Amazon may be the king of the retail world right now, but at its sky-high valuation, most investors are worried that the company's share price will get knocked down instead of its competitors'. We'll tell you what's driving the company's growth, and fill you in on reasons to buy and reasons to sell Amazon in our Motley Fool premium report. We'll also be providing a full year of free analyst updates to keep you informed as the company's story changes, so click here now to read more.
