The Internet has quickly been replacing many of the former mediums for purchasing goods, and this year Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) has once again proved itself a champion of this paradigm shift.
How did Amazon prove itself?
After customer surveys ranking companies based on their online retailing came in, Amazon was once again left standing above all others — including Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and J.C. Penney (NYSE:JCP), which both dropped in points — as some traditional retailers declined in the ranks. Though the survey only compares e-retailers based on their web-services alone, it does show that in the new paradigm Amazon is besting at least 99 other competitors in the eyes of consumers. Amazon’s own sales this holiday season seem to support the survey’s findings as well.

One of the core components of our CHEAT SHEET Investing Framework focuses on catalysts that will move a company’s stock. All this holiday season is showing is that Amazon has got its operation in order and is doing just what it knows how to do better than many others. Amazon’s holiday sales were its highest ever, and its own Kindle Fire HD was the most popular item on its menu. With the sales and survey, Amazon is proving its worth to consumers and investors alike.
With the fantastic sales this holiday season, Amazon shares can expect a boost. The interest in Amazon’s Kindle devices may also offer an appealing steady stream of revenue, and the recently heightened stream of app sales may also make Amazon a more appealing buy.
