Mergers In Retail Can Compete with Amazon

Mergers and acquisitions is where you should focus in order to make money from investments.

Shareholders in Embraer, Brazil’s airplane maker, got a thirty percent windfall when it was announced that Boeing was looking at combining with the company. The government of Brazil is the largest shareholder and want to sell part of the company instead of all of it. It might call for financial terms that are onerous. They are already playing a game of musical chairs because it isn’t just aerospace but chip manufacturing, chemicals, media, consumer goods, and pharmaceuticals in addition to other industries.

Invest in These Competitors of Amazon

The United States retail sector is an area where lots of merger and acquisition activity is expected to be seen this year. It is believed that Amazon’s competitors will be merging this year to compete more effectively with Amazon.com. A good candidate for buy out is eBay. Google is a potential buyer because it needs a retail arm on the internet to come compete with Amazon. EBay would be a good place to start since it has fulfillment warehouses in place and is a known retail brand.

Grocery chain Kroger with almost three thousand stores in the United States is another potential buyout for competitors of Amazon. While stock is down thirty-five percent from previous highs it has been successful at organic food sells. This is what resulted in Whole Foods partnering with Amazon. Kroger is planning to begin offering self-checkout in its stores this year.

While W.W. Grainger Inc is thought of as a business the sell industrial supplies the warehouses and centers for distribution make it an asset for anyone hoping to effectively compete against Amazon.

These companies are already profitable so there is not any work to be done making them profitable. Visit Jeff Yastine at medium .com to know more.
