UPS (UPS) disclosed in its annual filing that (AMZN) represented 11.6% of the company's revenues in 2019, substantially all of it attributable to its U.S. Domestic Package segment, Deutsche Bank analyst Amit Mehrotra tells investors in a research note. This implies Amazon accounts for 18.5% of UPS's domestic revenue, which is too much exposure to a customer with a well-known track record of in-sourcing/re-sourcing business with relatively little notice, contends the analyst. He believes that while Amazon is "clearly a driver" of revenue and EBIT growth for UPS, there are "very valid questions" about what risks are created by this significant level of exposure.

Seth Schiesel from the New York Times wrote on Thursday that "internet giant" Amazon (AMZN) is making a push into "a new front in the campaign to dominate digital entertainment." According to the NY Times story, Amazon is looking to make its presence known as a creator of video games not just a distributor. Amazon is aiming its efforts at rivals Google (GOOG) and Microsoft (MSFT), which have broadened their video game offerings, the NYT story added.

It is also developing a full-fledged cloud gaming platform under the code name Project Tempo," added the New York Times. Reference Link
