EP095- Listener Questions and Amazon Earnings

http://jasonandscot.com

Amazon Q2 2017 Earnings Summary (PDF from Amazon)

  • Amazon reported a beat on revenue but a miss on earnings
  • Revenue came in at $37.96 billion, beating street estimates of $37.18 billion.
  • EPS was only 40 cents per share, missing street estimates of $1.42 per share.

Listener Questions

  • Kiri Masters:

    I'd love to hear Jason and Scot talk about their global e-commerce outlook. Amazon in particular seems keen to expand aggressively in international markets. Does the growth opportunities match the regulatory / operational complexity for brands? Interested to get your take.

  • Josh Tarasoff:

    Hi Jason and Scot--What is your take on Amazon's strategy behind buying products at full retail price from marketplace sellers? Here is an article: http://www.cnbc.com/.../amazon-new-fba-program-buys....

    Thank you. I love the show.

  • Anup Gosavi

    Hey guys... love your show. Would love to see your take on when/ if brands will be active on messaging platforms like Messenger, Kik. etc.

    Is it actually a better channel than email? Is there a signal in all that noise? Opportunities/ risks etc. Thanks!

  • Lauren Quaile Tonkin:

    I'd love your thoughts on autoreplenishment. Why have other retailers not adopted this tactic broadly (beyond Amazon and Target)? Do autoreplenishment models differ globally? What non-intuitive products/categories do you think can benefit from an autoreplenishment strategy? Thank you! Keep up the great work.
  • Ben Kates:
    off-price retail offline and online

  • Gareth Hanes (in uk):
    Hi Jason & Scott, enjoying your podcasts from "the other side of the pond" in the UK.

    I would be interested in your take on the recent (in the UK anyway) growth of products sold on Amazon by Chinese 3P merchants (presumably manufacturers) using FBA.
    I have noticed transformational changes in some product groups where new SKUs and brands have gained strong traction very quickly (propelled forward by a combination of agressive pricing, AMS & FBA).

    There's been a lot of talk on your podcasts about Amazon "own label", but this "manufacturer to consumer" model would appear to be a much more of a imminent threat to incumbent domestic brand owners.
