Last quote about Amazon

Isa Hackett
An important conversation has begun about the need to create a culture in our industry which values respect and decency and rejects the abuse of power and dehumanizing treatment of others. This is truly an opportunity to find a better way forward, and ultimately toward a balanced representation of women and minorities in leadership positions.feedback

Richard Branson - Virgin Group

There are thousands of people who would love the opportunity of becoming astronauts and going into space. Virgin Galactic is the only company that has built a spaceship with wheels that can come back and land again and take people up and enable them to become astronauts.feedback

Richard Branson - Virgin Group

Elon is absolutely fixated on going to Mars and I think it's his life mission. Jeff and ourselves [at the Virgin Group] are more interested in how we can use space to benefit the Earth.feedback

John Cornyn
Ted Cruz

Everything is bigger in Texas, and that includes our economy, our skilled workforce, and our quality of life.feedback

Mark W. Warner

Facebook's partnership with Virginia and this significant investment in Henrico County are great news for the region.feedback

Tiffany Hogan - Kantar Retail

We could potentially see new Amazon lines popping up in Kohl's.feedback

Tiffany Hogan - Kantar Retail

[Kohl's] is one of the few department chains not closing stores, they're operationally focused, and they have a broad swath of stores with potentially a little extra space now.feedback

Kevin Mansell - Kohl's

Under Armour in particular continued a very strong performance and beat the sales plan across almost all categories. We've gained significant share in active apparel and footwear in the first half of the year and expect that to continue in the back half based on assortment improvements and our momentum.feedback

Michelle Gass - Kohl's

I really do think it's an example of two companies that can leverage each other's strengths. We're leaning into our store base, which is a competitive advantage for us. For now, let's walk before we run.feedback

Meg Hillier

Online VAT fraud is hugely damaging yet, as online sales continue to grow, the response of HMRC and the marketplaces where fraudsters operate has been dismal. HMRC needs to be far tougher in protecting the interests of British businesses and taxpayers. As a priority it must inject more urgency into enforcement action. But it should also push the case for further new powers.feedback

Michael Pachter - Wedbush Securities

This is a necessary move because of the sexual harassment allegation, but I think it's a convenient excuse to replace him.feedback

Howard Zemsky

This project is a major opportunity and New Yorkers should know that we are doing everything we can to attract Amazon HQ2 – and 50,000 jobs – to the Empire State.feedback

Bill de Blasio

We see this as a competition for 50,000 new job openings – jobs we want New Yorkers to land. We win it based on the talent of our workers and the incredible diversity of industries in this town. Those are the strengths you can't buy with tax breaks.feedback

Mark Mahaney

They're able to grow with or without Disney in a lot of international markets.feedback

Mark Mahaney

If (Amazon) really pivots and want to go after Netflix and offer a stand-alone streaming subscription business for $7 a month, that would be Amazon-esque and that would cut at Netflix. But I don't think Amazon wants to do that.feedback

Laurent Potdevin

There is really a passion for data, but not so much for the brands competing among themselves. So that relationship is really powerful and it translates to what we do offline both in our stores and through events. I think Amazon is mostly around commodity product. That's not our sandbox.feedback

Meg Hillier

These people are profiting from VAT fraud, because they still take their commission.feedback

Greg LeRoy

People are really concerned about long-term budget damage. At that price every taxpayer in the metro area would be affected for a very long time.feedback

Ned Curic - Amazon.com

Our vision is that the Alexa service will be everywhere our customers want it, including inside the car. Alexa on the Garmin Speak can help customers with many things, like controlling their smart home from the road, getting news or traffic, listening to Audiobooks, adding items to a shopping list, and ordering dinner with just their voice.feedback

Laurent Potdevin

The fact that we control our distribution really allows us to have a different positioning.feedback

Jonathan Cortell

This administration has been an advocate for the progress we've made, and very much intent on adding their own imprimatur on what we're doing next.feedback

Ras Baraka

We have exactly what Amazon is looking for, in terms of expanding their company in a city that will help them grow and where it would have real social impact. Newark is an opportunity to make a real statement, about what they're trying to accomplish in the United States in the age of Trump.feedback

Ben Feigenbaum - Edison Properties

I think the prospects are great. All the developers and political leaders know that Amazon would be good for everyone.feedback

Jon Whiten - New Jersey Policy Perspective

They're talking about doubling already generous corporate tax breaks. They're not saying, we'll invest billions in New Jersey Transit so workers can get to work on time, or in affordable housing so workers can have a decent place to live.feedback

Corey Booker

Amazon would be smart to come here because of our unassailable assets as a city. Newark, New Jersey, isn't a charity case, it is the choice for companies that want to locate and remain competitive and strong.feedback

Ray Pohlman - AutoZone

Those are the conversations that you don't get online.feedback

David Cicilline

The concentration of power in the hands of a few companies has the potential to hurt the economy and consumers in the long run. In the short run, there may be lowered costs, but if these entities have a large share of the market, there is a likelihood of increased prices and significant hurdles for small businesses and lower wages and fewer jobs in the long run.feedback

Amy Klobuchar

With Amazon, we need more transparency and need to look at longer term factors when it comes to competition. The people at the Justice Department in antitrust need to look at deals in other ways.feedback

Stacy Mitchell

They are doing all this reputation stuff around how it is creating jobs and that's helped it generate a lot of media attention.feedback

Rob Portman

Got to meet some of the 3,000+ Ohioans employed at this plant. #Jobs.feedback

Joy Ajlouny

We realised nobody in Saudi really has a formal address, but everybody has a smart phone attached to their hip.feedback

Isa Hackett

I told the head of your studio that HW raped me. Over & over I said it. He said it hadn't been proven. I said I was the proof.feedback

Mary Grace Gardner

The best answers include what goal you set, how you rallied the team to achieve that goal and how [you applied] those learnings elsewhere.feedback

Carey Mulligan

I think 'thank God it's all coming out', it's horrific. And thank God it's coming to the forum and these incredible women are feeling brave enough to be able to come forward and hopefully it means, you know, that people in his position will think twice before they abuse their power so horrendously, and this could be the end of this, this kind of terrible abuse.feedback

Jane Fonda

Well, it didn't happen to me …. I didn't want to expose and I will admit that I should have been braver. And I think from now on I will be when I hear such stories. Thank God it's being talked about. This is hardly unique in Hollywood. It's very, very common, just as it is in every country of the world, in every aspect ... in business, in government. It's the entitlement of too many men and it is epidemic. And when they're famous and powerful like Harvey, then it gets talked about and so it's really important that those women have been brave enough to come out.feedback

Karen Mills

If you look at the small business hierarchy needs, they need access to cash, funds, they need time, and they need more sales. And what if you were able to provide an efficient system that gave them more time to do all their work, access to capital and something that boosts their sales line? You could see how that player could win over a traditional player or even a new fintech.feedback

Karen Mills

But the question is, in what form would that come, and... under what regulatory authority? When I look at it from a U.S. view and a global view, the banks are going to come back in full force, including Barclays and others, and then on top of that you're going to have definite presence of Amazon players. Amazon has clearly signaled they're going to provide at least financing for their merchants that they know. And that's very smart.feedback

Jeff Blackburn

Amazon does not tolerate harassment or abuse of our employees or our business partners. If a concern is brought to our attention, we investigate it quickly and thoroughly. Sometimes we will hire an outside investigator to ensure impartiality.feedback

Roy Price - Amazon.com

Guys, I'm not doing OK but I'm trying. I got to get help. You know what, we all make mistakes.feedback

Isa Hackett

Yes, it has. I think women inspire each other. I feel inspired by the other women who have been far braver than I am, who have come forward. I hope we all continue to inspire each other and ultimately create change.feedback

Ben Butcher - STAG Industrial

As retailers reconfigure their supply chain to accommodate the shift in consumer behavior, the requirement for warehousing space will increase substantially. This is true incremental demand, not a displacement of existing demand for warehouse square footage.feedback

Raj Dhanda

What we've seen in 18 months is outsized returns for these industrial warehouse logistics assets – up 20 percent this year.feedback

Angela Spindler

We are in a good place from a proposition standpoint; people are increasingly open to shopping online and the plus-sized fashion market is resonating well.feedback

Angela Spindler

We have transformed from a catalogue retailer into a digital retailer.feedback

James Cordwell

While Sponsored Products targets promotional ad dollars, we believe Amazon is also starting to focus on brand advertising. This represents a major revenue opportunity, but could also be important in building broader relationships with major apparel brands.feedback

James Cordwell

Amazon's advertising business is growing in importance, representing an increasingly material source of profits as Sponsored Products continues to grow rapidly and more brand-oriented offerings are introduced. With additional benefits in building relationships with consumer goods and apparel companies, we have increased confidence in Amazon's long-term revenue and margin potential.feedback

Dave Clark - Amazon.com

We prepare year round for the holidays and we're excited to hire for over 120,000 positions this season to help delight our customers. We look forward to welcoming back holiday employees who return year-after-year to Amazon and welcome new faces to the team, many of whom will continue on with regular, full-time roles with the company after the holidays.feedback

Craig Berman - Amazon.com

Roy Price is on leave of absence effective immediately.feedback

Isa Dick Hackett

I think women inspire each other. I feel inspired by the other women who have been far braver than I am, who have come forward. I hope we all continue to inspire each other and ultimately create change.feedback

Martín Utreras - eMarketer

Consumers are becoming increasingly comfortable with the technology, which is driving engagement.feedback

Jim Cramer

It's a two-man race now, but one stock sells for 234 times earnings [and] the other sells for 19 times earnings. Granted, no major money manager is going to sell Amazon; it's too hot, it's too good. But there's a world of portfolio managers looking for another potentially dominant retailer with a cheap stock and a great balance sheet. Which is why I think the stock of Wal-Mart, even after this miraculous run, is not finished going higher.feedback

Jim Cramer

This is not the Wal-Mart we're used to. I don't think anyone can really put a dent in Amazon Web Services ... but I will say this: by virtue of its huge network of stores, Wal-Mart can do plenty of damage to Amazon's retail business.feedback

Alok Patel

I see the benefit to this if it were used as a modern version of an allowance. It is another modern way to reward teens for good behavior and to teach them financial responsibility.feedback

Sara Lenertz

I don't know how much they would go off on their own and shop at will. I think [many teens] already know how Amazon works. This might make it a little more hands off, but kids are so intuitive with anything technological.feedback

Patrick Moorhead

Amazon has most households and therefore most adult Americans as customers. The company is now going after businesses and now kids as customers. If parents can tell their kids to 'get it on Amazon,' it saves parents time.feedback

Sara Lenertz

My daughter long ago memorized my credit card number, including the three-digit code on the back. I feel fine about her shopping on Amazon, but I am sure it would come down to the level of trust parents have with their children.feedback

Anita Weiss

I trust my kids completely. I'm not worried about them doing something bad, but they are kids and they might make judgement calls that are not the best.feedback

Stephen Ju - Credit Suisse Group

The product development perspective is that while most of the headlines around the Whole Foods acquisition have been about price cuts, we believe the real path for Amazon to create lasting shareholder value is through fulfillment and delivery via Prime Now. Hence, while price cuts capture the headlines, we submit that Amazon will wage war with its competitors with service instead.feedback

Sandeep Murthy - Lightbox

Amazon has demonstrated time and again that it is here for the long haul and to fulfill the growing aspirations (of Indian consumers).feedback

Sandeep Murthy - Lightbox

They are creating a sense of urgency in getting people to sign up. It's a clever marketing tactic at exactly the right time, when content consumption is growing by leaps.feedback

Anindya Ghose

Voice is the new battlefront and India is a key battle-ground for Amazon. (It can help to) further decimate local Indian competitors like Flipkart and tap into a rapidly expanding market.feedback

Eric Saarnio

It has a 7in screen, an inch larger than any of our recent devices, and is also the highest resolution with 300ppi screen density, meaning we can fit around 30% more words on the screen per page, which means customers have to turn fewer pages.feedback

Eric Saarnio

I'll end at an ebook page at home, take my Kindle Oasis into the car, pair it via Bluetooth and then hit play and it picks up the audiobook right where I left off in the ebook. I can then roll through a couple of chapters in the audiobook on the commute, then take the device back home and flip back to ebook mode, and it knows exactly which location I left off to start reading again.feedback

Charlie O'Shea

It is clear that Wal-Mart intends to continue to turn up the heat online, with 40 percent annual growth an impressive goal, especially on the heels of the 30 percent outlined at the 2016 investor meeting, which at the time seemed aspirational in our view.feedback

Pierre Gramegna

We do not seem to agree, we considered that there was no state aid on our side, there was no selective advantage that was given to the company we are talking about. We are going to review all our possibilities and eventually appeal. The decision has not been taken. We shouldn't look at a situation that happened 10 or 15 years ago with the eyes of today.feedback

Natalie Berg

Unattended delivery is the least desirable of last-mile fulfillment options as it leaves the package exposed to all kinds of risk, . It's not just the financial cost but also the impact that a failed delivery can have on brand reputation and customer loyalty. Nothing makes shoppers more irate than missing a delivery.feedback

Jeff Jenkins - Amazon.com

The tweets are obviously a start to try and see where the dialogue goes …have a lot of fun with it, and see if they find the spirit of it as fun as we do. Some of the ideas are closer to home (to what) we could execute, but some are obviously pushing the envelope.feedback

Jeff Jenkins - Amazon.com

We've got to be impossible to ignore. Both Carls Jr. and (sister brand) Hardee's have a history of provocative advertising ... The question is how do you modernize that.feedback

Ana Gupte - Leerink Research

We are convinced that AMZN will almost certainly enter the drug distribution value chain within 2 years, evolving into a more disruptive offering over time.feedback

Amy Gallo - Harvard Business Review

Having a financial buffer will make it more likely that when you find something meaningful, you'll be able to act on it.feedback

Nick Hayek - Swatch

We add value to them. But they should also add value to the brand.feedback

Stephen P. Weisz - Marriott Vacations Worldwide

[According to] some interesting statistics not only that we see, but also through the Timeshare Trade Association and the American Resort Development Association, the number of Gen X, Gen Y and millennials continues to grow as a percentage of the new-owner buyers that are coming into the marketplace.feedback

Jim Cramer

Does this make any sense? You know what, I don't even know anymore. Here's all I ask. The highest valued stocks are now making the big moves – 'highest valued' meaning the highest price-to-earnings, highest price-to-sales [multiples] – so I'm begging you to do something for me: if you're going to own these stocks ... please know what you're buying.feedback

Jim Cramer

In this market, once Amazon locks its phasers on you, nothing's ever going to be the same. So down $10's not enough to immunize Costco's stock from further declines. The reality is Amazon's efforts are putting a lid on Costco's stock and they've taken away the floor.feedback

Jim Cramer

When a high-quality stock like Celgene gets slammed but the underlying thesis is still intact, I think you need to do some buying. Celgene's building a stable of multi-billion-dollar drugs, it's got fabulous management, and [blood cancer treatment] Revlimid's patent protection will likely hold up, so don't let this Morgan Stanley analyst scare you out of a good story, especially when that analyst sat out the whole run with a hold on the stock, which is not what I'd call value-added.feedback

Jim Cramer

After digging into this story, I think the pros do outweigh the cons, although I'm obviously not alone in believing that, as the stock surged from $17, where it came public today, up to $20.84. That's a 22 percent gain right out of the gate. Which begs the question: is Switch worth owning even after today's monster move?feedback

Jim Cramer

I am urging you to be careful. At this point, the odds do favor a pullback. It could give you a better chance to buy. Notice I'm not saying, Sell.' I'm just saying I want you to be ready. Here's the CliffNotes version of this call: millennials don't like to go to Costco. They'd rather go to Amazon. Membership growth isn't as robust among younger people, so the aging of its core demographic – 52 is the average – will, in the end, mean that Costco's stock is no longer a bargain no matter what.feedback

Rich Greenfield - BTIG Research

If you can offer talent the same level of fame and exposure and pay them the same–if not more–than they get elsewhere, you can get access to anybody. There are no barriers anymore.feedback

Jim Cramer

It was very disturbing, because it basically just says, Amazon is coming for [Costco], and [Costco doesn't] even care what [it] say[s].feedback

Jim Cramer

They're not signing up like they used to be. ... Do millennials still go there? Every question of the undercurrent is Amazon.feedback

Jake Dollarhide - Longbow Asset Management

It's been amazing how resilient our U.S. stock market has been, going up on no news or bad news, so there's no surprise on a day where most people feel it was a mixed jobs report at best that the market actually is reacting in a way that makes sense. It's a logical move for this illogical stock market.feedback

Keith Schoonmaker - Morningstar

I think it's important to frame UPS' and FedEx's exposure to Amazon. UPS says that no customer constitutes 10 percent of its revenue, and FedEx says no one constitutes three percent of its revenue. We would gauge earnings exposure more like mid-single digits to UPS and maybe 2 percent for FedEx. I lived in downtown Chicago in a dense neighborhood full of high rises, and I've had Amazon deliveries by Amazon independent contractors for probably two years now. So this is nothing new – that Amazon is taking some ownership of their deliveries.feedback

John Eade - Argus Research

Second-quarter revenues for UPS were up about 8 percent. FedEx, they had a problem with the cyberattack, but they're growing about the same rate too. Those are great growth numbers.feedback

John Eade - Argus Research

The goods need to get there in two days or less, and right now, it's UPS and FedEx that can do that best.feedback

Jim Cramer

He explained that the stock of drug store retailer Walgreens has struggled after news that Amazon could be looking to break into the multibillion-dollar pharmacy market. Yes. Let's watch the transports. Because classic Dow theory says as long as they go up we're fine. Watch JB Hunt, XPO Logistics – not in the transports average but [has] been extraordinary.feedback

Steve Winter - Amazon.com

Leave Share came out of employee focus groups, where we received feedback about the struggle that comes with a partner who doesn't get paid leave. It was actually [Amazon CEO] Jeff Bezos who really embraced this concern and challenged us to think big about how to create an experience for employees that could completely change not just their experience with a newborn, but their partners as well.feedback

Steve Winter - Amazon.com

It wasn't comprehensive enough, didn't give new parents enough time with their children and often the transition back to work was difficult. So HR looked into ways to improve it. We wanted to build an egalitarian program that would work for all of our employees.feedback

Liz Swanby - Amazon.com

When things are going well at home, I do better at work. The two co-exist.feedback

Fred Smith

The vast majority of FedEx's business is business to business. Eighty-five percent-plus of our business has nothing to do with e-commerce. So Amazon's a wonderful company and they certainly have revolutionized the e-commerce world, and we're not sure what Amazon's going to do one way or another. But the FedEx system that consists of thousands of facilities and the ability to pick up, transport, and deliver in one to two business days between any two addresses in the United States has been decades in the making. And we think that we have not a great risk of being disrupted, to use the term.feedback

Colin Sebastian

Given the investments that Amazon is making in fulfillment infrastructure and transportation to support its own retail business, we view it simply a matter of time until they offer these services to third parties more broadly. This is the same strategy that Amazon has successfully utilized in retail (third party marketplace) and technology (AWS) where they offer as a service the same platforms built to run their business.feedback

Jeff Bezos - Amazon.com

My first week on the job, a 5-gallon, wall-mounted ketchup dispenser got stuck open in the kitchen and dumped a prodigious quantity of ketchup onto every hard-to-reach kitchen crevice. Since I was the new guy, they handed me the cleaning solution and said, Get going!feedback

Roger Penske

I was asked to take a driver's test to race in the Indianapolis 500 around 1965, and I couldn't do that because I had a job, and I had to pass on it.feedback

Margrethe Vestager - European Union

This is about competition in Europe, no matter your flag, no matter your ownership.feedback

Michel-Edouard Leclerc - Amazon.com

Yes, we have been approached by Amazon. Amazon could - why not? - be our logistics partner.feedback

Warren Buffett - Berkshire Hathaway

I was too dumb to realize. I did not think [Bezos] could success on the scale he has.feedback

Margrethe Vestager - European Union

This is an illegal practice under EU state aid rules. Member states may not grant selective tax concessions to multinational groups to which other companies do not have access.feedback

Josh Umbehr - Atlas Capital Group

I welcome the direct competition. We need a national health care solution to this problem.feedback

Steve McIvor

The wildlife selfie craze is a worldwide phenomenon fueled by tourists, many of whom are unaware of the abhorrent conditions and terrible treatment wild animals may endure to provide that special souvenir photo. Behind the scenes, wild animals are being taken from their mothers as babies and secretly kept in filthy, cramped conditions or repeatedly baited with food, causing severe psychological trauma.feedback

Larry Ellison - Oracle

Why would anyone do that? If you eliminate human labor, you eliminate human error. By the way, it's always embarrassing for me to admit this, but my autopilot flies my plane a lot better than I do. You take a Redshift Amazon database workload that's already running at Amazon and you move it to the Oracle autonomous database and we will guarantee in writing, contractually, before looking at the workload, that any of those Redshift workloads will move to Oracle and your bill will be one half or less than what Amazon charges you. We will write that in your contract.feedback

Larry Ellison - Oracle

We do everything we possibly can to avoid human intervention. It's our computers versus their computers in cyberwarfare.feedback

Sid Nag - Gartner

It hasn't seen the market traction compared to the other market leaders.feedback

Larry Ellison - Oracle

This is the most important thing we have done in a long, long time. If you eliminate human labor, you eliminate human error. By the way, it's always embarrassing for me to admit this, but my autopilot flies my plane a lot better than I do.feedback

Werner Goertz

Clearly Amazon is leading the connected home and is poised to expand. But the minute you step outside you lose contact with Alexa and that is something I think Amazon will be working on next. That's where the competition can still effectively challenge them.feedback

Werner Goertz

The Fire phone was just short of a disaster. That was not a successful product. Today Amazon is trying to reach smartphone users by having Alexa embedded [in apps]. So it is somewhat present, but it is still not the same experience.feedback

David Limp - Amazon.com

Nothing makes me happier than when I walk down an aeroplane aisle and I see somebody with the original Kindle. It'll be 10 years old this year and people are still getting utility out of it. Have we made a little money along the way? Yeah, they've probably bought a couple of books. But they have also got 10 years of value from that product.feedback

David Limp - Amazon.com

Alexa, good morning. You might not have seen, but the kettle also started boiling. It's super early but I think the best thing we can do is build a great product that customers want to use every day. And if people want to use it every day then I think we'll figure out ways to monetise that long-term.feedback

Geoff Blaber - CCS Insight

For Amazon, hardware is a means to drive more consumption, be it media or washing powder. Software, developer and hardware announcements are all designed to deepen Amazon's role in our lives.feedback

Werner Goertz

Amazon's objective here is not for Echo to be a revenue generator, but more [about] devices that draw customers into its ecosystem, which it will make profit from. In that sense, Amazon is different from competitors, such as Google and Apple that still want to make profit from hardware.feedback

David Limp - Amazon.com

We try to sell all our products at effectively break even. Most consumer electronics manufacturers make all their money the day they sell to you. Then all they care about is the next Christmas [and]selling you the newest version of their widget.feedback

Melanie Evens - The Wall Street Journal

Too often, a stay in the hospital leads to unnecessary procedures, screenings and medications that do little for patients–other than driving up anxiety and costs.feedback

Brian Lim

We were able to acquire new customers who may not have found our products otherwise.feedback

Brian Lim

We were able to improve our sales from a high traffic channel. The scale of Amazon's online presence is just massive. Of course … there is a price to pay. Marketplace fees deduct a percentage of each sale, so we have to make sure our margins make sense. There's also limited control in the marketplace, since Amazon wants the focus to be on the products, rather than the sellers.feedback

John Mackey

One reason the merger came about is Whole Foods was in a trap, and I couldn't quite figure how to get out of that trap. The trap was 'Whole Paycheck.feedback

John Mackey

Amazon has a different narrative. Now we've embraced its narrative and so 'Whole Paycheck' disappeared. We escaped the trap. I feel a little bit like Houdini.feedback

Gaby Hinsliff

The automation revolution will cost jobs and cause massive unrest. Labour are ahead of the curve when they say that those affected must be supported. My son has just been given a new toy car. It’s small, blue and remarkably cute-looking for something that threatens one day to cost a lot of people their jobs. For what’s unusual about this car is that it wasn’t made in a distant Chinese factory before being shipped back to a warehouse here, then trucked to a shop, or dumped on a doorstep by an overworked Amazon driver with no time to ring the doorbell.feedback

Cristiane Mazzetti - Greenpeace

The Temer government's policies signal for those in the countryside that the doors are open for more deforestation and more fires.feedback

Diana Sheehan - Kantar Retail

This is probably one of the most valuable things they got from Whole Foods. The 365 private label has probably some of the strongest brand equity in the nation.feedback

Kai Rose

I buy a lot of 365 items. I will be definitely be buying them on Amazon.feedback

Jan Dawson - Jackdaw Research

It's a bit of a blow to Amazon. YouTube is one of the big video services that they had in addition to their own. For that to disappear means a big chunk of the possible video content you could watch on Echo Show is now gone.feedback

David Limp - Amazon.com

There's no apps. There's no skills. It just works out of the box.feedback

Mark Phelps - AllianceBernstein

If you are a retailer and Amazon comes into your area of operation, you will lose sales.feedback

Ramiz Chelat - Vontobel

I think we're going to see an impact over the next three to five years in Australia that we haven't seen in the past.feedback

Jeroen Huysinga - J.P. Morgan Asset Management

Looking at capital expenditures and distribution centers Amazon is putting down–that's a real signal of intent.feedback

Eddie Perkin - Eaton Vance

Virtually every retailer needs to assume Amazon is coming for them. What companies and investors thought were immune categories have turned out not to be immune.feedback

Marc Iampieri - AlixPartners

It's going to get to a point where it's unrealistic, because in a few years it will be that their expectation is for shipping same-day, for free.feedback

Ken Sena - Evercore ISI

Given a strong customer experience, scaled infrastructure investments, high user engagement, and lead within Cloud, we believe AMZN is among the best positioned to apply these neural network advances [artificial intelligence] across new verticals/industries. We see this lead in data, coupled with the company's edge in compute efficiency, as increasingly feeding insights into supply chain, for its retail, video, and other efforts, and through AWS, for its partners.feedback

Gopal Pillai

In particular markets like the US, there is a huge demand because people are willing to pay a premium for Ayurvedic or organic products, and the number of manufacturers with a heritage like Dabur are limited.feedback

Krishan Kumar Chutani - Dabur India

With telemedicine and our doctors, we want to own the ecosystem of knowledge around Ayurveda.feedback

Krishan Kumar Chutani - Dabur India

We are seeing a resurgence in the demand for Ayurveda but consumers are still seeking information on the use and benefits of these products.feedback

Jan Dawson - Jackdaw Research

Overall, today's announcements felt like Amazon doubling down on its Echo and Alexa strategy.feedback

David Limp - Amazon.com

They're literally scattering them around the house, putting them in hallways, workshops and garages.feedback

Geoff Blaber - CCS Insight

For Amazon, hardware is a means to drive more consumption, be it media or washing powder. Software, developer and hardware announcements are all designed to deepen Amazon's role in our daily lives.feedback

David Limp - Amazon.com

Setting up your smart home is still just too hard. It can take up to 15 steps to do something as simple as set up a lightbulb.feedback

Roy Price - Amazon.com

I do think Game of Thrones is to TV as Jaws and Star Wars was to the movies of the 1970s. It'll inspire a lot of people. Everybody wants a big hit and certainly that's the show of the moment in terms of being a model for a hit.feedback

Mike Francesa

I'm a big tech guy, so I'm a big Nvidia guy, I'm a big Amazon guy always. I tell you one that Josh [Brown] gave me that did really well, ALB [Albemarle], I still own it … He made me a lot of money with that stock.feedback

Dan Gilbert

He's got hundreds of hours of videos on YouTube you can watch.feedback

Sam Zell

The basic regional mall is becoming a mini-downtown, and becoming much more diverse. And therefore saving itself. The local corner strip center is still convenience. Everything in between is an oxymoron.feedback

Sam Zell

The U.S. has four or five times the amount of square footage per person of retail as anywhere else in the world.feedback

Sam Zell

I don't mean to be disrespectful of Amazon, but I don't think Amazon reinvented the wheel. I don't think buying Whole Foods is going to make it easier for Amazon to fulfill its objectives. I'm generally a contrarian. I generally rub my hands together at the opportunity for serious dislodgement. [But] an area that's in this much disarray, with so many weak players, it's not an area where I would want to deploy capital at this time.feedback

Some FANG stocks such as Amazon and Google/Alphabet have seen weakness before but usually it's been company-specific and not broad-based. Typically, Facebook and Netflix have held firm. Not today. Something looks to have changed.feedback

When the QEs were announced by the Fed, stocks jumped across the board before the actual buying occurred. We may be seeing the reverse happen following Wednesday's Fed meeting when they announced QT [quantitative tapering].feedback

While Alexa and Lex (the technology powering Alexa) are not HIPAA-eligible, this (challenge) has provided us an opportunity to envision what is possible.feedback

Brooke Buchanan

All Whole Foods Market stores will continue to sell local products, and our buyers remain committed to discovering and incubating local and innovative brands.feedback

Mike McDevitt

Whole Foods once found a way for local brands to have a great American story come to life ... [they] allowed brands to come into aisles, to tell their stories. While it's great to hear that the doors of Kroger are being open [to local brands] now, they're probably going to be cracked open, not wide open.feedback

Brittain Ladd

Kroger continues to prove they're the best grocery retailer in the United States, and they will continue to fight for their customers and brands. Amazon has no choice but to implement strategies that will increase operational efficiencies.feedback

We don't view a TV show as the tip of the sphere and everything follows. We consider everything primary.feedback

Prime shipping and the one-stop-marketplace nature of Amazon is so powerful, it's ridiculous to think we can compete. The biggest buying and selling advantage is Prime shipping. Next-day delivery anywhere in the country on nearly any product ... How can you compete with that?feedback

Sean Allan

We can see what everyone is doing, what they are selling and how well they are selling. If you know where to look, it's all there. I can see how well a product sells, as well as how many they sell in a day.feedback

Belinda Foster

Do I want to get on the road and ride bumper to bumper to get to the store for a few items, such as stationery and a couple of boxes of Lipton tea? I find myself opening up a browser on my tablet, and with a click of the wrist, I shop within a 10-minute time frame. ... I find that I have less stress throughout the day, thanks to shopping online. ... I see it as a stress buster.feedback

David Mitroff

I do worry more and more as I use it ... yet I still use it. I do worry that local stores will close or there will be no place to go touch things and see things in person. Sometimes I try to stop myself from ordering and go to the nearby store. However, it is so much more efficient as a small-business owner. When I need more printer paper or office snacks or anything ... It is scary that literally across the street or around the corner I can buy most of the things I need, however it is so easy to place the order and get back to work.feedback

Matthew Boss - JPMorgan Chase & Co.

We expect off-price will be the primary beneficiary of this brick & mortar sales volume up for grabs and benefit from the plethora of close-out merchandise for several years.feedback

Micheal O'Sullivan - Ross Stores

If I was Amazon, I don't think I'd be looking at the off-price space as my big opportunity.feedback

Ravi Garikipati - Flipkart

Basically we want to have some sort of a connect with the offline world as well–this is one of our upcoming initiatives, but it's not something that's out there yet. As we are looking ahead and trying to grow the market and win over the next three-five years, there are a few things we need to do.feedback

Ankur Bisen - Technopak Advisors

Online retailers have realised that they need some kind of offline play. With this deal, Amazon has made a very intelligent start while Flipkart is still trying to figure out its strategy. The Shoppers Stop deal is in line with Amazon's global strategy. The company recently bought organic groceries chain Whole Foods in the US. So they are experimenting with the same strategy in India. Even though the stake is small, there is no doubt that Amazon will leverage from its deal with Shoppers Stop.feedback

Our city's only about 60 percent built out, so we've got a lot of available land where we can build to suit. We play to win. We're innovators. We're forward thinkers, and we're serious.feedback

We wanted to cut through the noise, and they definitely noticed it. And when they choose Tucson, they can come out and experience a million saguaros.feedback

Joe Snell - Amazon.com

It's a hearty plant. It can grow up to 40 feet. And that's Tucson. We're a community that's growing. We're adaptive. And we're durable.feedback

If you look at it from a national perspective, it's zero returns. Minnesota might win one, Wisconsin wins the next one. The company wins each time. It's corporate welfare.feedback

Having Amazon would mean global things for our tax system. We do have business taxes, but that's something that could be looked at in the scope of Amazon coming here.feedback

Adam Sedo - Amazon.com

We're energized by the response. We invited cities to think big, and we are starting to see their creativity.feedback

If you ask any mayor, they'll say their first job is to bring good jobs to the city. And Amazon is promising to bring a lot of jobs.feedback

Christian Dorsey

The whole notion of Metropolitan Statistical Areas is not usually based on having three states, a number of metropolises within those states plus a federal district, so our case is kind of unusual. For Amazon, what they would be best served by is getting a full sense of what each subregion has to offer.feedback

Roger Berliner

I had actually hoped for a more coherent regional approach, but that appears to have been a bridge too far for some jurisdictions.feedback

Ravi Jariwala - Wal-Mart Stores

We want to start small so we can test and learn. This may not necessarily become the norm. And it may not be for everyone, certainly not right away, but we see a lot of potential here.feedback

We saw her passing by and called her into the community. I told her it was very dangerous, that it was full of drug trafficking and terrorists. I took her to my house and gave her water to drink, and we talked as she showed me her photos. I told her to go with us in our boat to Coari so she wouldn't be in danger.feedback

Alexandra Billings

Jill [Soloway, the creator of Transparent] is changing the face of television. First, television has never seen a trans person, certainly with the age I am and with the body that I have, naked on television. There is a care that Jill and the writers took, because the writers need to be given credit, too. It wasn't about fetishizing or sexualizing, and it wasn't desexualized. It was simple, plain conversation, and you're looking and then go, Oh, what the –' It takes you into the situation.feedback

Alexandra Billings

I had to bless them and thank them because you know what? Ten years ago, you wouldn't have known who I was. So, are we the butt of jokes? Yeah. Are we still in the center of violence? Oh, yes. Our suicide rate is 82 percent, we don't survive. However, the glimmer of light is in the fact that the portal is open and everyone is going through it , whether they want to or not.feedback

Alexandra Billings

I think that we have taken a step in the right direction, though we're at a pause right now with the current government. The people who have kept their true selves silent because they know within themselves what they believe isn't true, right or kind, have been given permission by all the white cis heteronormative men in power. They are blossoming in this really big way.feedback

Alexandra Billings

My sense is really good, so I knew something was going to happen. So I stopped, and I'm very much owning my own space, and they say to me, That's a guy.' One of them said, That's a tranny,' and they passed by me laughing. It was horrible.feedback

Noah Glass

We're thrilled to work with Amazon to provide Olo's base of restaurant customers with a new delivery sales channel that drives increased visibility. Amazon's obsession with providing great customer and restaurant experience supports the evolving expectations and behaviors of today's consumer. We're excited to connect more of Olo's restaurant brands with Amazon Restaurants.feedback

Ed Woodward

I do think we are going to see an increasing engagement from these and we would welcome the interest (in the Premier League). It's going to be increasingly important to digitally engage with fans and we think we can be complementary to partners like this.feedback

Gus Lopez - Amazon

We are excited to leverage Olo's digital ordering technology and continue rapidly growing our network of restaurants to give Amazon Prime members more options for fast delivery from their favorite brands. This integration will enable Amazon Restaurants to onboard new restaurants with ease, as well as quickly add more new choices and delivery options for customers.feedback
