Amazon would have even been a good investment at the peak of the dot-com bubble

qz.com — Amazon shares have gained 20% this month, including a big spike last week following the company's second-quarter earnings report. (Amazon posted a surprise profit and showed that its early investment in cloud computing was very smart.) While shareholders' reaction to Amazon's unique profitability strategy isn't always unconditional excitement, it has proven an excellent long-term investment.
