What the Media’s Got Wrong About the Amazon Antitrust Case

You may have heard that at least one member of Congress wants the House Judiciary Committee and the Subcommittee on Regulatory Reform and the Commerical and Antritrust Law to look into Amazon’s $13.7 billion buyout of Whole Foods, Inc.

Naturally, the financial news pundits are now floating the idea that the company could be in trouble – with one hedge fund manager even shorting the stock.

But here’s the thing…

This isn’t the first time Jeff Bezos has faced anti-trust issues. In fact, back in 2015, the group Authors United asked the Department of Justice to investigate monopolistic practices. And you see what’s happened to the stock since then.

So forget about these “doomsday” predictions the media heads love talking about – it’s just for ratings.

 This is the only thing you need to pay attention to right now…


On Tuesday, This Industry Will Decide the Fate of the Stock Market

Two days ago, during her semi-annual address, Fed Chair Janet Yellen told Congress that they see a tapering off of interest rate hikes for the year. Right after the news broke, the Dow gapped up to its all-time intraday high.

The question becomes whether the markets have run too high too fast – and if they have the stamina to sustain these prices.

Now many of the financial media pundits are making their own predictions…

But ultimately, only one industry will decide the fate of the markets.

And they decide on Tuesday.
