How to read and interpret Amazon stock price
On Wednesday, the company unveiled an update to its stock tracking app, which will now display a “stock” icon at the top of the screen when you hover over a price, making it easier to compare the current price to the one of months ago.
If you hover your cursor over the current stock price, you’ll see a “buy” symbol next to the price’s current price, which represents how much you would expect to pay to buy the stock.
That means that if you’ve already invested in a company or an asset, and want to buy a stock that’s going to rise in value, you can click on the “buy now” button at the bottom of the stock price icon to see if the stock is actually on the rise.
The app also has a new “buy this stock” button that will display an option to buy at a higher price if you’re looking for a stock with a higher stock price.
In other words, if you want to invest in a stock today that’s currently up about 20% from its price of last week, the stock’s price is likely going to be up by the next 10% or so.
In addition, the app now has a “hold” option for stock that you can buy at the current market price instead of buying a stock at the market’s current value.
“We’ve built a new way to make it easy to track your stock price,” said Marc Lederberg, Amazon’s senior vice president of investor relations.
“It’s like a smart phone app for stock.
When you’re watching the price, it shows you the current buy price and hold price, and when you’re holding the stock, it’ll tell you the next move.”
The update to the app comes a week after Amazon unveiled its first earnings report in more than three years, and it comes as the company has been struggling to keep up with the surging popularity of its Prime service.
Amazon has a $9 billion business, and is looking to increase its revenues by as much as 60% this year.
But while the company’s Prime service is the main reason for the increase in the number of people using its products, Amazon also faces competition from other companies like Netflix and Spotify.
Last year, Netflix was able to get its content onto Amazon Prime after signing deals with Amazon Prime, which means that it’s now the only company that Amazon can offer its Prime members.
This week, Amazon has added Spotify as another app that can stream content on Amazon Prime.
