We also visited the Amazon Go concept and found its tech integration compelling. AWS cloud momentum appears strong as it approaches a $20B run-rate on 40% estimated growth, but the Meltdown/Spectre vulnerabilities heighten risk to AWS margin expansion potential for 2018. We are constructive long term but remain SW as we think current valuation is full. Key Investment Points Amazon Go is finally a Go. We had the opportunity to visit the Amazon Go concept store and were impressed at the seamless integration of technology into the shopping experience. As promised, we were able to purchase items in a seamless manner. The box and merchandise itself were unremarkable (somewhat akin to Tesco’s failed Fresh and Easy concept), and we think the concept could be more of a learning lab than a needle moving rollout opportunity. Nevertheless, it demonstrates Amazon’s forward thinking and commitment to physical retail.””
