Why Amazon Is Still Cheap Today


The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which consumer goods editor and analyst Austin Smith and editor and analyst Isaac Pino discuss topics across the investing world.

Get ready commenters, Austin is about to take a divisive stance. He thinks Amazon still looks affordable, especially after their recent sell off. The thing about a company like this is that you can't look at it with traditional metrics like P/E, which are sky high. Amazon is the definition of a disruptive force, and Jeff Bezos has shown he likes to play the ultra long game in queuing up Amazon for its most profitable time not this year, or next year, but ten years from now and beyond.
