Amazon: Experience The Excitement

Amazon follows Apple with solid financial results. Sales are up 31%.

Amazon follows Apple with solid financial results. Sales are up 31%. Net income 48%. Take that, investors who drove the stock down 24 cents to $49.99 today, in the wake of another big stock selloff.

But before you spend $49.95 on the Marpac SleepMate 980A Electro-Mechanical Sound Conditioner to overcome another sleepless night, here's an alternative: listen to the Amazon earnings conference itself. It's free. It's even faster (and cheaper) than Amazon Prime.

The positive side: There's no longer a question that Amazon can make a profit, just how much.

That, these days, should (or could) excite the market's remaining investors.
