Amazon (AMZN) , not Apple (AAPL) , will become the world's first trillion dollar company, according to Scott Galloway, author of The Four, a book about Amazon, Apple, Alphabet (GOOGL) and Facebook (FB) and a professor at NYU's Stern School of Business.
"The stock will be anti-gravity," Galloway said in an interview with TheStreet. "If you look at where Amazon is budding heads against the other three (Apple, Facebook and Google), it's winning everywhere it touches them."
Amazon's market cap is $483 billion, compared to Apple's $825 billion.
"Amazon has replaced profits with vision and growth," he said. "As a result, they arguably have access to the cheapest capital in the history of modern business."
Following its acquisition this year of Whole Foods, which Galloway calls the greatest corporate acquisition of the last 20 years in retail, Galloway thinks Amazon acquires Nordstrom (JWN) next and potentially some broadcast networks such as AMC Networks (AMCX) .
He said the cable channels' ad supported business model doesn't make sense and that Amazon can monetize these platforms via its access to 60% of U.S. households via Amazon Prime.
