Amazon's AH stock price may be up or down, or sideways, but here are the three charts that make us scratch our heads as we valiantly try to explain how a company which just said it will have 'Operating income (loss) inbetween $(350) million and $(50) million" and currently has a 263x P/E, is worth anywhere close to where it is trading.

First, here is AMZN's total employees and worldwide sales growth. The blue line is self-explanatory. The red one shows that the firm has grown its employees by 150% in the past two years.

Next, here is AMZN's Trailing Twelve Month Operating Margin, which has collapsed from just under 5% to just 1.2% in the past two years, and its TTM Net Income, which at last check was $377 million, which fits about 263 times inside its market cap of $100 billion.

Finally, here is what AMZN's quarterly operating profit and net income were. At June 30, the company with 69,100 employees and over $54 billion in LTM net sales, posted... $7,000,000 in Net Income.
