Was surprised not to see Amazon on the list of service sector stocks. AMZN is up an amazing 123% year to date. It does seem to be stuck below the $700 level but with holiday season under its belt and next quarter earnings around the corner we may well see Amazon jump through its comfort zone. lots of analyst opinions have weighed in and the opinions are very encouraging: 13 strong buys, 24 buys, and only 6 holds. Do you think Amazon is overpriced or a buy at this point? ($689 at close yesterday)
