In your faces, Boeing, Starbucks, and Microsoft! After all the wretched fourth-quarter reports from those local titans (and the layoffs), Amazon.com just announced its ass-kicking results. From AP and Yahoo!:
4Q profit up 9 percent to $225 million
4Q revenue up 18 percent to $6.7 billion
Today's share price up 13 percent to $56
Some good news at last. Meaning no layoffs on Beacon Hill or at Amazon's other offices. And I'm guessing a very happy happy hour tonight. Cheers.
