I literally invested 65k in Amazon stock (i think it was 1300??) from my 401k over the weekend. I'm going to leave it and not touch it for 20 years. Let's see what happens.

This is RISKY but might not be a bad idea, if AMAZON continues to grow revenues at 25% a year. If it stays pretty steady than you could be missing out on A LOT of money.

You know what I didnt think about the long term gain strategy a*suming steady vs aggressive growth. I a*sumed worst case was losing the whole stock (complete collapse) or it would grow to be the biggest company in the world and world record stock growth.

I'm ok with steady growth but you are right I could invest in something that would triple my 66k by next year.

Just for perspective, when I was hired on they gave us stocks and it went from 500 to 2000 in 2 years!

Damn, you still employed? Did you sell? I've been applying to AWS jobs just for the stock options.

My wife works for amazon... smart move! It will be fine... be patient. Stocks fluctuate... in a bit of a bad cycle at the moment but it will bounce back.

When i joined AWS 4 years go, we owned 80% of the worlds cloud capacity.

Just imagine how much we own now...

Last year for the 4th quarter of 2017, my team broke 4 world records 4 weeks straight.

The most Capacity to ever be installed in a week. We held the original record, but we broke it the first week in october, and broke it again every week after that until the end of october...

I worked in the largest regions, of the largest az, of the largest cloud computing company in the world.

Felt good to be part IT history

We even have a Data Center that apple bought from us to support their cloud.
I'm on my third or fourth interview for AWS. They hiring like crazt

This is exactly what they want. Matter of fact, they bring in other smaller retailers and vendors, allow them to sell product but in turn, they use the very data, reviews and information they receive from the consumers purchasing from those vendors and Amazon then turns around and basically eliminates from the picture once Amazon begin offering the same product, usually at a lower price and better delivery options.
yea amazon is a dirty hoe and she dont play fair
