Jeff Yastine, the Editorial Director of Banyan Hill Publishing published an article that pointed out companies in competition with Amazon that might be worthy investment opportunities. One of these companies is a Brazilian airplane manufacturer named Embraer, which Yastine said was purchasing civilian and military manufacturing contracts of value. He also foresaw that the Embraer shareholders would experience a windfall after Boeing revealed it might acquire the company, and this happened. While the deal hasn’t closed, it’s looking like it could happen.

Jeff Yastine says that he expects more companies to try to compete with Amazon by joining up with each other, and he indicated that a Google purchase of Ebay could be one of these competitors. His reasoning has to do with the fact that Google needs a retail side of its operations to be able to compete with Amazon. Kroger Co. is another potential competitor, and the grocery chain has 3,000 stores in the U.S.A., which offer organic food options now. The company is also beginning to offer a cashier-free experience in some of its stores, which will reduce its spending on employees. Jeff Yastine indicated that Grainger may also be able to compete with Amazon, and while many investors jumped ship when they saw Amazon moving in on some of the same markets, the company has a large enough distribution network to stay in for the long haul.

Jeff Yastine was quick to point out that something strong about these three possible Amazon competitors is the fact that they do not require any adaptations. They are ready to go and already have the facilities and room needed to be competitive. Yastine has followed the three companies over time and discovered that they would be profitable when combined during the 2018 calendar year.
