Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) [Trend Analysis] knocking active thrust in leading trading session, shares an advance of 0.56% to 822.44 with around 2.97 Million shares have changed hands in this session. Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) declared that it has become the first internet streaming company to nab an Oscar nomination for best picture, with its “Manchester By the Sea” nominated Tuesday for six Academy Awards, including best director (Kenneth Lonergan) and best actor (Casey Affleck).
In one way, Amazon (AMZN) is not paving new ground in its journey to the Oscar stage. Netflix Inc. (NFLX) was nominated for its fifth Oscar in the documentary category for Ava Duvernay’s “13th.” The industry’s enfant terrible, however, has never made the splash its competitor in streaming now has, despite last year having a film in “Beast of No Nation” that was critically acclaimed and earned a nomination at the often-Oscar-predicting Golden Globes. Netflix, however, has failed to land a nomination in one of the Academy’s major categories.
The key difference in the two companies’ approach to the film business is distribution. Despite its position in streaming, Amazon has proven to be in support of theatrical windows, or the period when a film is only accessible in theaters before heading to home video Hollywood’s traditional way of doing business and one the industry is eager to uphold. The stock is going forward its fifty-two week low with 73.51% and lagging behind from its 52-week high price with -2.92%.
Similar, the positive performance for the quarter recorded as 0.42% and for the year was 37.87%, while the YTD performance remained at 9.68%. AMZN has Average True Range for 14 days of 11.61.
