Amazon reports almost 20% Sales increase in Q4 2008
 
 

Amazon reported its Q4 2008 Earnings and the numbers are impressive. I am not sure why the Wallstreet is surprised as Amazon already reported in December that they had a record holiday shopping season. It was safe to assume that the whole quarter would be great and that sales increased quite a bit compared to last year.
Net sales increased 18% to $6.70 billion in the fourth quarter, compared with $5.67 billion in fourth quarter 2007.
Excluding the $320 million unfavorable impact from year-over-year changes in foreign exchange rates throughout the quarter, net sales would have even grown 24% compared with fourth quarter 2007. Operating cash flow was $1.70 billion in 2008, compared with $1.41 billion in 2007. Free cash flow increased 16% to $1.36 billion in 2008, compared with $1.18 billion in 2007.

Amazon is not stopping there. The online retailer even predicts that net sales would be growing between 9% and 19% compared with first quarter 2008. There is apparently no economic crisis in the Amazon.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
