I did a thumbnail super rough calculation on Amazons most recent financials. If you subtract out their “reinvestment” and their R and D, and then add it to their profit figure you come up with a company that has a 2% annual return based on it’s current stock price. 500 billion market cap with 10 billion profit.
They are essentially the worlds largest, (almost) non profit company. Honestly, I can’t thank their shareholders enough. Amazon’s service is fantastic and I wouldn’t order anywhere else.
