Here is what Alphyn Capital has to say about Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) in its Q2 2022 investor letter:
“It is interesting to see how sentiment on Amazon went from positive to negative in one quarter, as it transpired that it too was not as immune to post-covid slowdowns as some, myself included, had expected. However, I feel confident that Amazon, as the apex predator in the e-commerce space, will navigate market softness better than most other retailers. Moreover, once it finishes with its current capex cycle, it will continue to improve margins. Andy Jassy is reportedly spending one-third of his time focused on capacity and supply issues in the retail division.”
