As an analyst, Max Salk needs to understand the present and he needs to understand the future. Some of the most interesting companies within the sector are companies within the technology sector such as Amazon, Netflix, Tesla, and a variety of others within the sector.
Now, many people might see a lot of value within the technology sector but it is necessary to know that individuals would also need to see the potential downsides as well. Investors may not see money flowing in terms of profits and would need to understand how the company would aim to be profitable in the future.
To understand a company, it is necessary to look at one of the leaders within the space.
Max Salk may look at a company like Amazon and analyze it in a rigorous manner.
See, Amazon is a very strange company. We know that it was a bookseller at first but now it sells everything. It purchased companies such as IMDB, and other companies early on, it purchased companies that had no real relevance to it at the time. Even now, some may be astounded by some of the companies that Amazon may buy, it seems irrelevant in the short term.
Amazon looks like it lacks cohesive strategy but investor interest would indicate that they trust Amazon to quite well in the short-term and in the long-term as well. One sees that Amazon is executing in a ruthless manner as well. Amazon looks like it is moving as fast as a cheetah when it is as big as an elephant. It is a fascinating company indeed.
For individuals to understand Amazon, people like Max Salk may dive into companies such as Walmart who were pioneers within the industry. The fact of the matter is that Walmart is a company that had a lot to do with vastly improving the retail landscape. One may even realize that Amazon stole a lot from the playbooks that Walmart was using to grow. It started with the Walmart playbook and then built on top of it and grew a significant amount from there.
People like Max Salk have to dive in a deep manner into companies like Amazon and Netflix to really understand how they will change the game.
