   Diversifying is always good, that I know. Investing in Amazon stocks can be great, it`s good company, they plan to expand their
business, they are growing and investing now is good.
   What I don`t know is the process of investing in stocks. How someone do that? How do you plan to buy Amazon stocks? I would
like to know about the process, is it complicated? Is there some minimum investment? I invest in crypto-currencies, but until now
I never thought about investing in stocks, I think it`s to complicated, maybe I`m wrong, that`s why I have so many questions.

I haven't checked lately--is their P/E still at infinity?  Ultimately Amazon is a retailer, and yes their brand name is huge right now, but I never liked investing in retailers.  I've seen what happened to the vast majority of them over the years.  Customers' tastes change, and often another store comes along that people flock to.  Most of the department stores from my childhood alone are dead.  

Amazon has always had tremendous revenue, but it's never been very profitable.  They've been in startup mode for years now, spending money to acquire customers, but rarely actually making money.  So no, I would not invest in their stock.  Short-term you might make a profit, but I don't think it's a long-term play.
<snip>
It's not complicated at all if you just want to buy stock.  You have to find a brokerage, and there are tons of them online (don't know about your particular country).  Some have minimum amounts to start an account.  You can buy one share of Amazon, that's the minimum, and you have to pay a commission that varies between brokers.  I pay something like $8/trade with my broker.

Diversifying is good depending on where you have chosen to diversify into. Amazon is a good company and although one does not have access to their internal deals, but I don't see any threat that could curtail their existence in the near future as the company has been able to stay above board since the time I have known about them. But you just have it at the back of your mind that the income from that source is not comparable to from crypto as stability is witnessed in the market where its trading and until huge even happen such as change of management board or declaration of dividend, don't expect the any significant increase in the price and you may have to wait a long time to get your desired return.

That is a good move where amazon is so popular and not joking to further develop it every year, so it never hurts to follow it, but to re-read the actual conditions, to be more confident with your goals, I personally do not pay much attention that, with being in the crypto world i have been getting what i concept in the last few years, try it first, amazon is a big-time company.

E-commerce is still an up and coming industry Jeff Bezos knows it and Jack Ma as well. Look at who is the reached man now it is know other than the owner of Amazon itself. This online retailer business is still a hit with almost all of us don't want to get away from our mobile phones and pc screen we want even our shopping to be done without setting our foot out. It may look like I am not explaining if it is a good buy or not but I am just showing you how much future it has no matter how much it has risen over the past.

Amazon is good stock for me but if you are really looking for an investment like amozon why wouldn't you buy bitcoin? buying btc now is like buying amozon in 2010. I believe in btc so I would not suggest diversifying with such investment.

Perhaps the only stock that is worth the investment at the moment. In any case, the question is in the amount of these investments. If it is a question of minimum amounts, then it is not worth it.

I wouldn't invest in any stock with the potential major crisis coming soon. It could be more interesting when the crisis will be turned ON. All investors are waiting to see China.
What has been trending for a while now, is the crowdsourcing. I saw a lot of projects coming to their goal with it. Even some with weird ideas.
I would rather help and invest a very small company to see the light rather than Amazon cheating the taxes of countries

Diversification is always good... Amazon has doubled in last 2 years... the best case for amazon stock can come in when amazon starts accepting bitcoin...and buying before Amazon publicly declares it, is always a good idea.

Talk with the stock market advisor. Refer to your local stock exchange.

In investing at stocks, there should be no doubt at your side and you must understand the risks. But since you are scared, no person here can help you directly so it's better to talked "personally" at those financial advisor. It will just lead to confusion if you will encounter positive and negative thoughts here so a personal talk is a must. You care for your money after all so you need to planned it properly and not just you read some useful thoughts somewhere.

Goodluck.

Amazon has had an excellent run leading up to the present and looked poised to dominate the world. For those who follow Jeff Bezos/amazon, you know they have many ambitious and futuristic plans which are constantly being copied or emulated by target, walmart and other retailers in an effort to keep up with amazon's dominance and expansion.

The main negative for amazon is Donald Trump attempting to implement measures aimed at diminishing amazon's advantages to level the retailer playing field. There are multiple scenarios which could play out, here. Donald Trump could be successful at establishing regulation which eliminates some of amazon's advantages restricting its growth and lending market value to other, more traditional brick and mortar, retailers. Or amazon's growth could continue unimpeded by attempts at regulation. How will things go?

I think amazon is pretty saturated at the moment and there isn't a high potential for growth, I would look elsewhere.
