The Real Cash Cow for Costco and Amazon

The following video is from Tuesday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Jason Moser and Andy Cross, discuss the top business and investing stories of the day.

Costco (NASDAQ: COST  ) reported a 39% increase in second-quarter earnings and a 5% increase in same-store sales. And according to a Morningstar report, Amazon.com's (NASDAQ: AMZN  ) Prime service has more than 10 million members. Those members account for a third of Amazon's operating income. In this installment of MarketFoolery, our analysts discuss the membership business models and debate other companies that could benefit.

However, with prices near all-time highs, is the ride over for Costco investors? To answer that and more, we've compiled a premium research report with in-depth analysis on Costco. Simply click here now to gain instant access to this valuable investor's resource.
