    With respect,can this fool introduce a couple of "novel" concepts into our discussion?

    I mean, the idea that multi-baggers, like AMZN, also have a season for everything = including maturing, after a long ascent. In other words = everything has an end.

    (except the sausage which has two, as per old-time Viennese wags).

    Maturity= where the momentum of past rapid expansion still carries on but slows, then stops at some point.

    The other?

    When management has repeatedly pleaded guilty to criminal + other charges, this old fashioned fool considers it a criminal enterprise, to be shunned as a leper. Especially as the criminal conduct has zero consequences. The criminals are still in charge, collecting their multi-bagger compensations!

    Nay, Wall Street keeps rewarding them = by issuing repeated buy recos for their criminal enterprises.

    Call me a hopelessly outdated old fool.
