Amazon has been selling off its market cap below $1 trillion

November 3, 2022: -Amazon has exited the trillion-dollar club. On Tuesday, shares of the e-retailer are coming down 5.9%, which falls for a fifth straight day and closes at their lowest since April 2020. The sell-off has erased all of the stock’s pandemic increase.

Investors resumed punishing the company for the previous week’s disappointing fourth-quarter projection. Amazon added revenue during the holiday quarter would grow 2% to 8% more than the year-ago period, far below analysts’ estimates. The cloud division, Amazon Web Services, reported weaks sales.

It’s the first time Amazon’s market cap has been less than $1 trillion since April 2020. The stock had decreased 42% in 2022 and is on speed for its worst year since 2008 when it declined 45%. The only worse year was the dot-com boom of 2000 when the company lost 80% of its value.

Like the rest of Big Tech, Amazon has struggled this year due to which slump economy, soaring inflation, and rising interest swiftness. On top of that, Amazon has been forced to grow back after expanding dramatically during the pandemic, and consumers have returned to stores.

Amazon has been the second-worst performer in the Big Tech group this year, behind Facebook parent Meta, which has plummeted 72%. Meta told investors last week that revenue in the fourth quarter would likely decline for the third period.
