As the online retail is shaping up to be the dominant arena, Amazon has already stated they are the king of the current market place and continue to dominate as others play catch up. Amazon could be compared to Apple as the leader in online sales. What makes this company so great is they sell anything and everything you’d need from many different vendors. Prices are also very competitive, which motivates the consumer to keep coming back. However, they will have to keep innovating if they want to be the market leader in the coming years.

This company has been in the news recently for not the best of reasons. The Federal Government went to some of the offices looking for documents regarding specific questions in their finances. Regardless of what they were looking for, the company was brought to the front of the media in a negative light, which certainly does not do well for brand image. However, do not let this distract you from the fundamental health of the company as this could provide a great buying opportunity at a discounted price.
