JUST FOR FUN AS IT IS A BETA BLOG!  Kaiser Shipyards formed healthcare company due to government regulation (i.e. salary freeze during World War II).  Why and what will Amazon’s healthcare look like and will it just acquire a company?  Will Amazon in the future look more like Jack Welch’s GE (aka M&A machine).

Amazon an industry killer or M&A for growth? Who really knows Amazon and who is a parrot?


Amazon acquiring Whole Foods is a big deal for them strategy and size.  Will Amazon go on a bigger buying strategy?   If you are strong, should a lot M&A make you stronger? Consolidation plays or kills your competition for Amazon?  Did you know Amazon did not own a lot of its last mile delivery!  Look for somebody that knows Amazon vs. media & Wall Street parrots talking online!

I am going to do some digging and provide some great behind the smoke stories.

More to come with change in our name to riseSEA, riseEquity, & riseLabsVentures (not sure on the final name)

DISCLAIMER

Our moto is “Say Provocative statements that intelligent people argue about fast without dotting your i’s and crossing your t’s. As life is all about fun and results!” – JD Morris

 

 

IN on DECK – You never know until you know.


“You never know until you know” – JD Morris (or unknow idiom)! The future is the future and “you ever know until you try and succeed.”  I have had the honor of learning lot about Uber current and future plans (meetings investors and using our proprietary research system).  The guys are doing things really smart.  However, during last holidays I saw tons of white trucks delivering gifts to my house as well as throughout the year.  Did Amazon lockup the delivery systems or will Uber getting into the business change the playing field?

Well you never know until you know!  All those white trucks are not owned by Amazon, but outsourced.  Will Uber team with Amazon to allow you to get everything fast.  Will Amazon out source everything and just be a portal?  Again, we will never know until two things:

  1. Understand how they are building the distribution system of the future (I did not know they did not own the white trucks (more to come about investment opportunity).
  2. Understand the future of logistics (their will be lots of failures and winners)
  3. Bottom Line “you never know until somebody tries and success happens” as who new Uber be making Yellow Cab SF file for BK!

DISCLAIMER

Again we doing things differently as it a BETA Blog and here is our disclaimer: We  “Say Provocative statements that intelligent people argue about fast without dotting your i’s and crossing your t’s. As life is all about fun and results!” – JD Morris  (i.e. no spell check just raw data and writing placed in this BETA blog that has no staff).

BOTTOM LINE

You never know until you know!  I will be researching this space and might even try to buy few unmanned vehicles for test driving!  However, who would know taxis companies would have allowed Uber to stay in business and who knows when UAV or unmanned land vehicles will change the landscape.

HAPPY NETWORKING & INVESTING,

JD Morris
