Amazon bans incentivized reviews tied to free or discounted products

Amazon is making a significant change to its Community Guidelines, the company said in a blog post, which will eliminate any incentivized reviews, unless they are facilitated through the Amazon Vine program. "Here's how Vine works: Amazon - not the vendor or seller - identifies and invites trusted and helpful reviewers on Amazon to post opinions about new and pre-release products; we do not incentivize positive star ratings, attempt to influence the content of reviews, or even require a review to be written; and we limit the total number of Vine reviews that we display for each product. Vine has important controls in place and has proven to be especially valuable for getting early reviews on new products that have not yet been able to generate enough sales to have significant numbers of organic reviews. 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.
