There is "a lot of demand at the higher end of the market" in China for goods from the US, which will help make Amazon's offerings "more attractive to chinese consumers" , said Colin Sebastian, an analyst with financial services firm Robert W Baird
"given current share price levels, we would expect the company's board to seek a larger premium - perhaps at or above the 52-week high" of about $59, said Colin Sebastian, an analyst at Robert W Baird & Co., in a note to clients. That would value Shutterfly at about $2.3 billion
Amazon's move "was indicative of the blurring lines between commerce and payments, and ultimately amazon competing against ebay/paypal, google and apple in the mobile payment space" Sebastian said
"In typical Amazon fashion, they're using price as a motivator," Sebastian said. "it's pretty obvious in this case that they're losing money on the swipes at least."
