Take Advantage of the Fundamental Gap in Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) Stock
When you’re a small company, particularly an upstart tech firm, the law of small numbers works in your favor. If you’re only making $1 million in annual revenue, another million would represent 100% sales growth. That’s one of the reasons why penny stocks are so compelling: hit the right one and you’ll witness bonkers enthusiasm.
But what does $1 million mean to a company like Amazon? Today, such a lowly figure is a rounding error, if that. Hence, the bigger your organization becomes, the more likely that the law of large numbers works against you.
Yet some companies like Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) go against the grain. After reaching the one-billion active user benchmark, it quickly got to two-billion. Despite its size and age, Facebook’s growth metrics are simply more convincing than comparative upstarts Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) and Snap (NYSE:SNAP).
But if you’re not into social media, don’t worry: AMZN stock also moves in counter-intuitive fashion.
Having dominated ecommerce for several years, you’d expect revenue growth to conspicuously peak. Instead, sales growth is noticeably increasing, which easily bolsters the long-term case for Amazon stock.
