My sources tell me that AMZN's sales commission will be between 5% and 20%. I'm anticipating that the higher the price, the lower the commission as that's one of the most popular commission standards in the world of collectibles.
Does this contribute to justifying AMZN's sky-high share price? At Friday's closing price of $305.23, shares are slightly more than $4 from the 52-week high. With a forward (one-year) PE ratio of 96, that's better than its current nonexistent PE since AMZN doesn't have any after Ebitda earnings (EPS) yet.
Let the five-year price chart below speak for itself. I've included the trailing 12-month (TTM) revenue per share which shows remarkable results. This is about as pretty a chart as can be found.
