Is Amazon.com (AMZN) becoming a victim of the Trump effect?
Shares of the e-commerce giant and Wall Street darling have fallen about 6% since the U.S. presidential election. The stock was down 3.5% mid-day Thursday at $745.20.
Donald Trump's surprising victory against Hillary Clinton may be causing investors to flash back to Trump's comments in May to Fox News' Sean Hannity.
Trump fired shots at Jeff Bezos, claiming that Amazon's founder, president and CEO had a "huge antitrust problem" and that Amazon was "getting away with murder, tax-wise."
The now president-elect also asserted that Bezos was using The Washington Post as his own political tool. (Bezos bought The Post for $250 million in 2013).
In a potential attempt to reach a truce, Bezos tweeted Thursday morning to congratulate Trump.
Congratulations to @realDonaldTrump. I for one give him my most open mind and wish him great success in his service to the country.— Jeff Bezos (@JeffBezos) November 10, 2016
