In 1997 Amazon went public with their initial shares trading at just $18 per share. Back then their operations only included selling books. From this humble beginnings, Amazon grew to be a mammoth online retailer and service provider that we know today that deals with almost all categories of products, movie and music streaming and even in the food delivery business. Amazon has been rumored to be eyeing the healthcare sector. Considering the disruption reputation it has built over the years, news such as these cannot be ignored by any serious investor. This is one of the reasons Paul Mampilly, a seasoned investment guru took his time to jot down the possible repercussions of this move if Amazon were to go through with it. The blog post was published by Banyan Hill Publishing.
Paul said that such a move would be devastating for the portfolios of other stockholders as they are dividend-paying stocks. He added that according to his analysis, whenever Amazon targets a company, the company’s stocks change their trajectory to a downward trend, an observation he termed as “Amazoned.” Amazon is particularly targeting the prescription drug market, and Paul Mampilly’s lacrosse camp.
Paul Mampilly explained that whenever a company is Amazoned, the business’s first priority is directed towards price efficiency and transparency. Lack of transparency is one of the reasons Amazons targets some companies. Paul said that the stock market has already sensed this impending threat and as a result, some companies have already dropped giving examples such as CVS which dropped by more than 25 percent since spring of 2016 and Express Scripts that dropped by more than 35 since the summer of 2015.
