Ted Bauman: A Different Perspective On Industry Giant Amazon As A Possible Monopoly

In a recent article penned by expert financial writer Ted Bauman, the concept of Amazon and its role in the global economy are examined. While some are titling Amazon a monopoly and touting it as an enterprise too big to fail, Bauman warns shareholders and the general public that Amazon still retains a level of vulnerability. Current market data demonstrates that Amazon, while immensely popular and an undeniably strong player in the market, does not hold a controlling interest that creates a comprehensive level of domination and eliminates all competition.

Most recently, Bauman discusses how the shareholders were affected by negative comments made about Amazon owner Jeff Bezos and the company itself by President Donald Trump. Following the harsh comments by the President, a fairly significant decline could be seen in stock value. Additionally, Bauman warns of how vulnerable Amazon is to both real and simply perceived trade and tariff issues. One more point of consideration is that Amazon does not pay dividends despite their hefty profits. This means that the only way for an investor to profit off of Amazon stock ownership is upon the sale of the stock; therefore, stockholders are more likely to unload their shares at a much smaller wave of trouble.

Ted Bauman shares his views on economics through a variety of writing outlets as a professional financial writer and as owner of a stock trading service known as “Smart Money”. Recently, he co-authored a book with his father, Robert Bauman, entitled Where To Stash Your Cash (Legally).

As an extensively well-traveled individual who has studied global economics at great length, Ted Bauman offers a financial perspective that can only be attained through research and experience. A graduate of the University of Cape Town in South Africa with degrees in both Economics and History, Ted Bauman worked for over 25 years in Africa before returning to the United States which was his country of birth. After returning to the U.S., Bauman initially took a position as Director of International Housing Programs for Habitat for Humanity International which he retained for five years before making writing and consulting his main professional focus.
