 Throughout the pandemic, Amazon (AMZN) has had no trouble generating huge returns. Once the Covid-19 crisis is over, it is in a very good position to make more money.

What's happening: In the first three months of 2021, the Internet giant's profits tripled to $8.1 billion. Shares near the all-time high have risen 2% in premarket trading.

"Amazon now has almost complete business for the world," said James Harris, global chief strategy officer at Mindshare Worldwide. "The world's leading e-commerce platform, growing cloud business, and even a small growing advertising capability, all work in unison. It's an exciting offer."

On Retail: Online Shopping Demand has not slowed, with Amazon's consumer business revenue growing 39% in North America in the last quarter and 50% internationally.

Amazon now has over $200 million paid customers of its Prime service worldwide. They are streaming more videos, and the company is set to spread another wind during this quarter's Prime Day promotional event.

On the cloud: Amazon Web Services, a provider of cloud computing services, posted a 5% year-on-year net sales of $13.5 billion in the quarter.

And as more companies tap into technology to manage workers who split between their home and office fees, the outlook seems stronger.

"During the Covid, we've seen a lot of businesses decide they no longer want to manage their own technical infrastructure," Chief Financial Bfizer Brian Lslowski said in a call with analysts on Thursday. "We expect this trend to continue as we move forward in post-pandemic recovery."

On Advertising: Advertising revenue is also accelerating, as advertisers try to target customers who spend more time online. According to e-marketer, the company's share in the US digital ad market exceeded 10% in 2020. The research firm expects the business to generate $20 billion in revenue this year and $30 billion by 2023.

E-marketer analyst Eric Hagstrom said, "Consumers will shift more [costs] shine online, trade costs and shop purse marketing will follow faster and will flow more heavily to Amazon,".

That's all good news for CEO Jeff Bezos, who is once again the richest man in the world with a fortune of $202 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. Although Bezos is set to rein in Andy Assy C later this year, it will have to make 11% of its stake in Amazon.

Look at this space: Amazon is constantly facing a whirlwind of no-confidence proceedings and has repeatedly drawn political attention for its treatment of workers, although it has recently beaten Union Drive in Alabama. But without government intervention, the company’s dominance is only poised to grow.

Big picture: Amazon was the last Bigtech company to report earnings in early 2021. Overall, the results of these payments are even more noticeable. Together, Facebook (FB), Amazon, Apple Pull (AAPL), Google (Giguel), and Micro .ft (MSFT) earned about $75 billion during the first three months of the year.

Let's say it again: about $75 billion. With b.

Break Coca-Cola: It's time for Buffetpulza

Living in Los Angeles, he is Warren Buffett.

Last Saturday, the billionaire investor hosted a live stream of the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting in California, one of the world’s biggest events in business.

Backstory: Typically, thousands of shareholders flock to Nebraska to see Omaha's Oracle while consuming Berkshire-owned Sees Candies and Dairy Queen Deli Bars. But LA is home to Charlie Manger, vice chairman of Berkshire and longtime Buffett confidant. Munger, 97, lost his seat last year.                                                                                    

Buffett and Munger - as well as fellow Berkshire vice chairmen Ajit Jain and Greg Abel - are set to raise questions from shareholders and journalists who are expected to inquire into issues ranging from the surprise stock market change to the economic outlook.

Other possible questions include:

  • Berkshire Hathaway is sitting on about $140 billion in cash. What kind of deal is Buffett considering?
  • Top Berkshire holdings include blue-chip companies such as Blue Paul (AAPL), Coca-Cola (KO), Bank America for America (BAC), and Kraft Heinz (KHC). Will the team consider more bets on high-growth companies, given its stake in cloud database company Snowflake?
  • Does Bitcoin, popularly known as Bitcoin "Rat Poison Squared", support recent attempts to mainstream cryptocurrency?
  • Buffett has been known to buy quality companies for a long time. What does he think about Mem Stock Mania and other trends among Robinhood investors?

Bank of America does not believe that cities are dead

When the pandemic hit last year, people left cities in a draw - and, tempted by lower costs and more space, it was not clear if they would ever return.

But according to a new analysis by Bank of America, "reports of city deaths have been greatly exaggerated."

The bank's economists found that when it came to high-cost cities such as New York and San Francisco, there were also incentives for people to return - especially small workers.

Bank of America said NYC and SF are major cities for young people as economic, financial, and cultural centers. "Adding an additional incentive to last year's rent stretch, and with the share of young adults sitting at home reaching record highs by 2020, there may be some pants-up demand."

The bank also noted that those who moved out of the city "did not go very far," noting that the Cleveland Fed's research showed that many of those who immigrated from New York and San Francisco were in 150 of those cities. Lived within miles.
