Amazon.com (AMZN) Misses Big on EPS, Despite Revenue Beating Estimates

By @ibtimes on

Quite a big miss afterhours for Amazon.com - EPS of 44 cents v 61 expectation.  This despite beating analysts expectations on the top line of $9.5B by nearly $400M.  When Amazon misses it is usually by a few cents, so this is an interesting report.  Could be some impact from Japan where just over a tenth of sales come from. The stock is all over the place in after hours.

We are back to a period where bad news does not matter much to the market (other than to the specific company reporting it) so we'll see if this is forgotten by tomorrow morning.
