Retail giant Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) is sitting close to all-time highs after reporting its third-quarter results. Investors cheered Amazon meeting bottom-line expectations of a $0.09 loss, but providing a healthy revenue beat by reporting $17.09 billion.
However, investors continue to shrug off delays of Amazon's set-top box dubbed Fire Tube. Do these delays signal a greater trend? Is Peter Lynch's theory of deworsification applicable here?
Amazon uses a forked version of Google's (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Android operating system--Fire OS. Also, it is reported that Amazon will allow third-party apps available on Fire OS. What does the mean to the existing market, including Google's own Chromecast and Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) TV? Can Amazon disrupt this market like they disrupted retail? What do investors of Amazon, Google, and Apple need to know?
