Amazon ends 'incentivized' reviews unless through official Vine program

Amazon confirmed it is now prohibiting "incentivized" product reviews -- reviews published by users who received the product for free or at a significant discount from the manufacturer -- unless they are facilitated through the Amazon Vine program. The company noted that Vine, which similarly gives select users access to free or discounted products, has "important controls in place," including a careful vetting process and a strict lack of incentives for positive reviews. The changes will apply to all product categories other than books. The company added that "we also have ideas for how to continue to make Vine an even more useful program going forward. Details on that as we have them." Reference Link

Amazon.com initiated with a Buy at Guggenheim
Guggenheim analyst Robert Drbul initiated Amazon.com with a Buy and a $950 price target as he expects the company to remain both a leader and beneficiary of the ongoing e-commerce consumer spending evolution. He expects Amazon to claim ~25% of the domestic e-commerce market by 2017, but just 3% of the total retail market. Further, Drbul expects AWS to remain a key profit and share driver and is encouraged by improved results in in International.

Baird says impact on eBay from Facebook's Marketplace likely limited for now
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian said Facebook's (FB) launch of its long-anticipated peer-to-peer commerce platform, "Marketplace," came "much later" than he anticipated, but he still thinks Facebook is well positioned to compete in consumer shopping. Facebook's latest e-commerce effort will create headlines around competitive pressure, but Sebastian thinks Amazon (AMZN) and eBay (EBAY) will be "minimally impacted" in the near term given their scale, brand awareness, and much more advanced e-commerce capabilities. eBay may be most exposed, but the analyst also notes that 80% of its listings are new products, which may have limited overlap with Facebook listings.
