Why Amazon Is My Second-Largest Holding


  • Tech and the impressive growth within the sector play an important role in my well-diversified portfolio.
  • Amazon is the world’s most dominant cloud player and is set to become the largest e-commerce retailer on the planet.
  • The company enjoys a near-perfect credit rating from S&P.
  • Shares of AMZN appear to be trading at a 49% discount to fair value, which could be an appealing margin of safety.
  • The world-beating business could 8x the S&P through 2025 and conservatively 6x the index over the next 10 years.
