It is all impulse buys, however I ponder if we’re not beginning to see impulse buys on-line,” Schlossberg mentioned throughout the identical section. “I ponder if Amazon is shifting down market. We’ll know in 1 / 4 or two if they’ll proper the ship. In 1 / 4 or two, numerous these shares are going to be very robust buys, however for now I might actually put a pause button on it simply to see how the enterprise goes.”
