Takeaway: 80% AMAZON; 20% TWITTER

Ahead of Twitter’s Q1 2014 earnings report and after Amazon’s earning disaster last week, we put this question to you in today’s poll: You have $1,000,000 to invest in Amazon or Twitter and hold for 5 years. Where do you put it?

Poll of the Day Recap: 80% Would Invest in $AMZN Over $TWTR - amazon


At the time of this post, an overwhelming 80% of voters said AMAZON; 20% TWITTER.


As this AMAZON voter explained, “Twitter can be displaced.  Amazon is the new Wal-mart.” Another echoed that sentiment, “Follow the money. A lot of mine goes to Amazon. None goes to Twitter.”

One AMAZON voter said they really wouldn't buy either, “but if forced to choose, AMZN remains a name that – at some point – could account for over 5% of US Retail Sales. Much easier for some new technology that we haven't heard of yet to disintermediate TWTR than AMZN.”

Conversely, one TWITTER voter said, “Twitter will be bought out; Amazon will have its multiple severely divided someday soon.”

And to put it a different way, as this TWITTER voter noted, “I'd pick Twitter over Amazon, but I'd pick Pinterest over both.”
