    Although it will take awhile and an extreme number of hoops to jump through, if they do pull that off it will be a huge boon for them.

    Of course once they get it then Walmart will also.
    True. I see nothing proprietary about the distribution system Bezos is building. Others can watch and learn, and then imitate his plan to their heart's content.

    But Walmart's would need to be very, very nimble to pull that off.

    I agree. I say if you possibly can, but a share or two.

    It's trading at about $1,000 now and thus, should be splitting soon. I think you will have $10,000 in 5 years.

    JMO.

    This is "Apple before the PC" time for Amazon stock prices.

    How long do you have to wait for Amazon?
    I hate going to a big box store for ANYTHING.

    The advantage for Walmart is they can deliver groceries.

    No, the advantage is that Walmart has the physical presence in many places to be able to do this kind of delivery. Amazon does not. Just like Amazon's drone delivery, they'll only be able to do it in certain, very limited markets.
