A Deep Dive Into Amazon.com

In the most recent edition of Consumer Countdown, Motley Fool consumer goods analysts Michael Finarelli and Sean O'Reilly join Mark Reeth to discuss one of the biggest consumer goods companies on the planet: Amazon.com (NASDAQ: AMZN  ) .

The team takes a look at the company's recent earnings, where it went right last quarter, and where it went wrong. They also dive into some of its more niche segments, including Amazon Prime and AmazonFresh. Are these segments simply loss leaders, or are they profitable businesses in their own right?

Then Sean must try to answer the age-old question: When will Amazon become profitable? And to wrap things up, Mike takes a look ahead at the Christmas season and how things are shaping up for Amazon.
