The much awaited “The Amazon Prime Day Extravaganza” is around the corner. The humungous and the most highly touted event in the e-commerce industry would take up two complete days in mid-July. At the time of its inception in 2015, it was an event to mark and celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the company.

Amazon Prime Day was initially a 24-hour sales event. Later it was extended to a day and a half event. Now, this time the company has announced that the Amazon Prime day would be a two-day affair and would take place on the 15th & 16th of July.

According to Jeff Wilke, chief executive of Amazon’s worldwide consumer division, “Our vision is that Prime Day should be the absolute best time to be a member — when you can enjoy shopping, savings, entertainment and some of the best deals Prime members have ever seen.”

Global Shopping Event

Prime Day is a global shopping event which is exclusively for the Prime members as part of the company’s loyalty program. The Prime member exclusive holiday will last for 48 hours, making it the longest Prime Day ever. Users pay $119 a year and receive free shipping, access to its video and music library, as well as other perks.

However, for those who still are not members of Amazon Prime, the company has made provisions to enjoy the benefits of Amazon Prime Day.  All they need to do is enroll for a 30-day free trial. This would grant them access to the member exclusive deals. This two-day parade of epic deals would start at midnight Pacific on Monday, July 15.

The company reported that its last year online sale was the biggest in the history where its members purchased more than 100 million products. The orders outshone the previous year’s i.e. 2017 tally by more than 60% worldwide. However, the company refrained from releasing an exact sale figure. According to the analysts, the last year sale approached $3.4billion.

Last Year Was The Biggest In History

Amazon said last year’s Prime Day was its “biggest in history.” It reported Prime members purchased more than 100 million products, with orders surpassing the previous year’s tally by more than 60% worldwide. Edging near a new buy point, the stocks of Amazon fall 1.9%, closing at 1,878.27 on the stock market today.

If one can recall the last year Amazon Prime day event soon suffered from the issues of malfunction that perturbed its members. This anomaly lasted for a good 2 hours out of the 36 hours of the sales event. There had been no discussion or clarification from the company’s end regarding the cause of the malfunction.

This year, however, one is likely to see specials on Amazon’s exclusive products as the company tends to focus on its own products and bring it to the limelight. So, any member who would take part in the sale extravaganza is likely to see specials on the Alexa-enabled Amazon Echo and Echo Dot devices, in addition to Amazon’s line of media devices and its Kindle readers.

Amazon also is expected to put its own products front and center. Expect to see specials on the Alexa-enabled Amazon Echo and Echo Dot devices, in addition to Amazon’s line of media devices and its Kindle readers.

DIS stocks to buy Disney +

There is no doubt that 2019 and the years beyond are going to be definite by the ‘streaming wars’ between some of the biggest companies in the world. The imminent entry of a behemoth like Disney (DIS) has raised the stakes even higher and on Thursday the entertainment company made another significant announcement.

During the company’s conference call for the fourth-quarter earnings, the Chief Executive Officer of Disney Bob Iger stated that the streaming serving Disney+ is going to be available on Amazon Fire TV.

Major Development For Content Providers

This is a major development, considering the fact that Disney had earlier said that the service might not be available on products owned by Amazon due to advertising disagreements.

However, that is not all. Iger went on to state that the service will also be made available on Smart TV manufactures by LG and Samsung. During the conference call, the Disney CEO said, “We’re pleased to announce partnerships with Amazon Fire [TV], LG, and Samsung devices.”

It is a major development for a streaming service that is trying to capture market share quickly from Netflix. Availability on Amazon Fire makes it accessible to a far bigger pool of potential customers. That is why this particular announcement is so important.

Where Does This Leave Netflix?

There are certain added benefits of the availability of Amazon Fire TV. The Disney+ app has the ability to sync with the built-in search engine on Amazon. Therefore, users will be able to request particular content by stating it to the personal assistant Alexa.

It goes without saying that the development has come as a big boost for Disney+. It’s ahead of the much-anticipated launch on November 12. The price of the service sits cheaper than Netflix’s cheapest package. It’s also going to be a highly cut-throat battle between the two companies. That said, other services are also coming soo. The ‘streaming wars’ are going to be the theme of 2020.

Biotech Stocks To Watch This Week

With Biotech Continuing Higher, Are These Buys Or Sells This Week?

Biotech penny stocks have proven to be one of the best sectors for investments. That’s as far as the stock market is concerned. If experts are to be believed then it may continue to be among the best options in the years to come. That being said, it does not mean that investing in biotech stocks is an easy ride.

An investor needs to conduct a lot of research and also watch the market closely. Similar to other high-risk industries, volatility is a big factor. At any given point in time, a bad report could send stocks plummeting. Similarly, one good DA report can trigger a monster move. Here is a quick look at a few biotech penny stocks which made moves recently. Will they be better stocks to buy or avoid this month?

GT Biopharma Inc. (GTBP)

This company’s stock made new 3 month highs on October 22. GT Biopharma (GTBP) announced that its solid tumor targeting TriKE killed a non-small cell lung cancer tumor cell. This is a major development news for the company’s TriKE platform because the market potential for non-small lung cancer is big.

biotech stock to watch 2019

Non-small lung cancer accounts for 84% of all lung cancer diagnoses. Shareholders clearly felt this way, which may have been why GT Biopharma’s stock shot up by more than 25%.

There could be another potential reason why stockholders are reacting this way to the recent news. Earlier in October, the company announced that the design of HIV-TriKE was able to successfully target the HIV-Env protein.

This would allow the company’s TriKE technology to eliminate replicating HIV infected cells. Because of the success of TriKE with lung cancer cells, investors might feel that the company will be able to successfully destroy HIV cells.

WHAT CURING CANCER & HIV COULD MEAN FOR THIS COMPANY, ITS INVESTORS & THE WORLD!

Pieris Pharmaceuticals (PIRS)

The first stock to consider in the biotech sector with regards to the latest movements is that of Pieris Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ:PIRS). Back on November 5, the company announced that dose escalation monotherapy data with regards to one of its products is going to be presented at the Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) Annual Meeting that is going to be held at National Harbor, Maryland.

The medicine in question is PRS-343, which is meant for treating HER2-positive solid tumors. It goes without saying that it is a positive development and the Pieris stock has reacted positively to the news as well. Since the news broke, the stock has gained as much as 10%.

Foamix Pharmaceuticals (FOMX)

The other biotech stock that has been on a tear for much of the week is the Foamix Pharmaceuticals Ltd (NASDAQ:FOMX) stock. Back on October 18, the company announced that one of its products known as AMZEEQ has been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration. The medicine in question is a topical foam and is meant for treating inflammatory lesions in both adults as well as pediatric patients, who are older than 9. That was the initial trigger for the rise in the stock price.

Last week, the company also published a peer review of the long term open-label safety of AMZEEQ and that proved to be the trigger for the rally. During the course of the week so far, the Foamix stock has soared by as much as 60%. This is a stock that should definitely be tracked by investors.
