Amazon.com Inc faces 14 investor resolutions challenging its policies at its annual shareholder meeting on Wednesday, a record for the retail and cloud computing giant, as socially minded investors scrutinize its treatment of workers.

The rise in the number of resolutions underscores the rise of environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG)-based investments, which are driving more shareholders to push for corporate responsibility.

It also reflects changes made by securities regulators appointed by US President Joe Biden that have made it easier for investors to file proposals and made it harder for companies to convince regulators that these resolutions should not be put to a vote. shareholders.

A new record for such resolutions at an S&P 500 company will be set next week, when Google’s parent company Alphabet Inc faces 17 on June 1, research firm Insightia said, the most since that time. she started following them comprehensively in 2014.

About ten of the shareholder resolutions Amazon investors will vote on relate to workers’ rights and other “social” issues, such as calls for the company to report on worker health and safety or the treatment of its warehouse workers. The others are asking for things like a review of Amazon’s use of plastic or changes to the company’s process for board appointments.

Amazon has recommended that its investors vote against all 14 resolutions, saying in its proxy statement that it has often already acted to address the concerns underlying a proposal. Although resolutions are not binding, companies often take some form of action if they receive support from 30-40% of the votes cast.

Leading proxy advisor Institutional Shareholder Services recommended investors vote for eight of the proposals, while Glass Lewis backed seven.

Royal London Asset Management Ltd, Britain’s largest mutual life insurance, pensions and investment company, plans to vote in favor of at least six of the shareholder resolutions at Amazon’s meeting , its head of responsible investment, Ashley Hamilton Claxton, told Reuters.

Britain’s largest asset manager, Legal & General Investment Management, and UK asset manager Schroders Plc also said ahead of Amazon’s shareholders’ meeting that they would support at least some of the investors’ resolutions.

Amazon is a popular holding among ESG-focused funds. About 32% of funds classified as promoting the environment or social justice under European Union rules are invested in Amazon, according to Jefferies Financial Group Inc. Only Microsoft Corp is a more popular holding, present in 39% of these funds .

Brandon Rees, deputy director of the AFL-CIO, America’s largest labor organization, said he hopes ESG funds holding Amazon will support labor-focused resolutions more often.

“I believe labor rights and working people have been buried in the ‘S’ of ESG,” Rees said.

Amazon is a multinational technology company that primarily deals in e-commerce, cloud computing, digital streaming, and artificial intelligence businesses.

On the Company’s Amazon.com e-commerce platform, Amazon sells both third-party merchandise and Amazon’s private label products. As the owner and operator of the Amazon.com e-commerce platform, Amazon has access to certain non-public data of third-party sellers who use the Amazon.com platform.

On or around June 3, 2019, the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on the Judiciary has launched a bipartisan investigation into the state of online competition. The investigation, conducted by the Antitrust, Commercial and Administrative Law Subcommittee (the “Subcommittee”), examined the business practices and market dominance of Facebook, Google, Apple and, particularly relevant , Amazon (the “Investigative Sub-Committee”).

During the subcommittee’s investigation, the subcommittee held several oversight hearings at which various executives of the aforementioned companies, including their respective CEOs, testified on topics such as the effect of market power on the press, innovation and privacy and market dominance of the companies under investigation. After each of the hearings, the members of the subcommittee put questions to the witnesses for the record.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, the Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the company’s business, operations and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Amazon engaged in anti-competitive behavior in its private label business practices, including giving preference to Amazon products over those of its competitors and using third-party sellers’ non-public data to compete with them; (ii) the foregoing exposed Amazon to increased risk of regulatory review and/or enforcement action; (iii) Amazon’s revenue from its private label business was in part the product of impermissible and therefore unsustainable conduct; and (iv) as a result, the defendants’ public statements throughout the Class Period were materially false and/or misleading.

On March 9, 2022media reported that the House Judiciary Committee had asked the US Department of Justice to open a criminal investigation into Amazon and some of its executives for allegedly lying to Congress about its business practices during the sub’s investigation. -committee.

In response, Amazon claimed there was “no factual basis” for the House Judiciary Committee’s allegations.

Then, on April 6, 2022, the the wall street journal published an article titled “SEC Investigating How Amazon Disclosed Business Practices.” The article reported, among othersthat the SEC’s investigation has been ongoing for more than a year and focuses on Amazon’s disclosures regarding its use of third-party seller data for its own private label business.

At this news, Amazon’s stock price plummeted $105.98 per share, or 3.2%, to close at $3,175.12 per share on April 6, 2022.

Pomerantz LLP, with offices in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Parisand Tel Aviv, is recognized as one of the leading firms in the areas of corporate litigation, securities and antitrust. Founded by the late Abraham L. Pomerantz, known as the dean of the class action bar, Pomerantz pioneered the field of securities class actions. Today, more than 85 years later, Pomerantz continues the tradition he established, fighting for the rights of victims of securities fraud, breaches of fiduciary duty and corporate misconduct. The firm recovered numerous multimillion-dollar damages on behalf of class members. To see www.pomlaw.com

15 Hidden Kitchen Gadgets Under $50 on Amazon You Won’t Believe You Lived Without http://amigaextreme.com/15-hidden-kitchen-gadgets-under-50-on-amazon-you-wont-believe-you-lived-without/ Sat, 21 May 2022 00:14:41 +0000 http://amigaextreme.com/15-hidden-kitchen-gadgets-under-50-on-amazon-you-wont-believe-you-lived-without/

What are the best hidden kitchen gadgets under $50 on Amazon?

Have you ever been in the middle of a tedious kitchen task and thought, “there must be a better way to do this?” The good news is that there’s probably a handy gadget out there to help you with every part of the kitchen. The bad news is that you have lived without it until now.

From preventing wrist pain to saving cut fingers, kitchen gadgets do much more than save a little time. They are also safer for little helpers who want to help out. So, for those looking for a better way to handle kitchen chores, here are 15 hidden kitchen gadgets under $50 on Amazon that you won’t believe you lived without.

How to choose kitchen gadgets

There’s a kitchen gadget for every cooking task under the sun, and many of them are fun to use. So, you may need to be picky when choosing new kitchen gadgets. There are a few questions you should ask yourself before buying a kitchen gadget.

Does it save time?

One of the main reasons to buy a fun kitchen gadget is that it saves time. For example, it could be a oil sprayer which saves you time to get out the giant oil bottle or a KitchenAid Stand Mixer that speeds up the making of a dozen cookies for a bake sale. No matter how exciting a gadget is to use, it’s not worth it if it doesn’t save you time.

What is his goal?

While there are a ton of kitchen gadgets out there, not all of them are useful. Does it have a single purpose or is it a versatile gadget that will save you several steps? For example, a Instant Pot replaces several kitchen appliances and will get a lot of use, unlike a single-use item. However, single-use items aren’t bad. They can always be accommodating and save a lot of time.

Does it solve a problem?

Think about the problem you are trying to solve in the kitchen. Looking for a space-saving gadget in your small kitchen? Or maybe you’re tired of cutting your finger every time you remove the pit from an avocado. Finding a gadget that will solve a problem for you is worth buying.

What to look for in kitchen gadgets

Ease of use

Kitchen gadgets are designed to make your life easier, not harder. You don’t want to spend extra time assembling an item, setting it up or taking it apart. So be sure to check the usability of a gadget before buying it.

Cleaning

It’s a good idea to check the cleaning instructions before buying a new gadget. Are there a ton of parts that need to be cleaned individually, or are there hard-to-reach places that will eventually get moldy? Even if a gadget saves you time and space, it might not be worth it if it has a tedious cleaning process.

Echo interactions shape the ads we see http://amigaextreme.com/echo-interactions-shape-the-ads-we-see/ Tue, 17 May 2022 19:36:00 +0000 http://amigaextreme.com/echo-interactions-shape-the-ads-we-see/

More and more people are using digital assistants like Amazon Echo or Alexa.

According to one estimate, there are more than 110 million devices in this category in the United States

Our interactions with these devices can shape the advertising we see elsewhere.

According to research published in April, Amazon Echo interactions have been used to help target ads on Amazon Prime, Amazon.com and several other platforms.

“Imagine tracking your pregnancy on a health skill and asking questions about it. It’s possible that these interactions could be used for targeted pregnancy-related ads,” according to Umar Iqbal, a postdoctoral researcher at the University. from Washington. who is one of the co-authors of the study.

The researchers created a series of characters based on certain interest profiles, such as fitness, religion, or politics.

Each character interacted with an Echo device.

Over time, the researchers found that the ad became more character-appropriate.

“I’m not saying literally or explicitly that I’m interested in fashion,” said Pouneh Nikkhah Bahrami, a researcher at the University of California, Davis and co-author of the study. “But my questions are fashion-related. So the device can process the data and then extract my interests. It understands that person is interested in smart devices, fashion styles, or a car.”

In an emailed statement, an Amazon spokesperson said it’s true that some interactions are used for ad targeting.

“For example, if you ask Alexa to order paper towels or play a particular song on Amazon Music, recording that purchase or song may inform relevant advertisements served on Amazon or other sites where Amazon place ads,” an Amazon spokesperson said. in a written statement. “It’s not an atypical practice.”

However, the company spokesperson clarified that Amazon does not “sell customers’ personal information” or “share Alexa requests with ad networks.”

“Customers can opt out of interest-based advertising from Amazon at any time on our Advertising Preferences page,” the spokesperson said. “This includes ads served by Amazon on our devices and services like Alexa.”

The researchers say the company can do more to provide transparency between third-party skills for its smart speakers.

“Analysis shows that only two percent of sampled jurisdictions are clear about data collection practices in their privacy policies,” Bahrami said. “Amazon mentioned on their website that all of their skills have privacy policies. We haven’t seen them.”

What happens to your Amazon returns? Sometimes they go to the highest bidder http://amigaextreme.com/what-happens-to-your-amazon-returns-sometimes-they-go-to-the-highest-bidder/ Sun, 15 May 2022 03:00:27 +0000 http://amigaextreme.com/what-happens-to-your-amazon-returns-sometimes-they-go-to-the-highest-bidder/

(NEXSTAR) – Amazon makes it easy to return something you don’t want, so you probably don’t think about what happens to that box once it leaves your house. Turns out an ill-fitting dress or an unwanted frying pan — or whatever you decide not to keep — makes for a fascinating journey.

What happens to millions of Amazon returns? “Every item returned to Amazon is carefully inspected through a rigorous process by our trained associates,” a spokesperson told Nexstar via email. “If it meets our high standards to be resold as new, it is relisted.”

This is the first and most obvious answer: it is resold. It’s also the most annoying answer, as heaps of returned goods end up finding a second life in the clearance market, where they’re sold by the pallet at a steep discount.

Anyone willing to bid on a palette of mystery products may end up with a load of returned items shipped to their house. Whether or not there is anything valuable in this delivery may turn out to be a mixed bag. There is a whole subgenus of YouTube content dedicated to bidding thousands of dollars on a palette of Amazon returns, then unboxing them to determine if it was worth it, to see if the YouTuber’s gamble paid off.

Here’s how the whole process works. Sellers using Amazon’s platform can choose to have returned items sent back to them – so they can find out what to do with them – or they can choose to route their returns directly to clearance, according to Amazon.

Before sending returned items to a wholesale liquidator, Amazon says someone will inspect the products and classify them into one of four categories: “Used – Like New, Used – Very Good, Used – Good and Used – Acceptable”.

Sellers set the asking price for their used items, just as they do with new items, Amazon says.

From there, the items are repackaged in boxes – sometimes with similar things, sometimes with things that don’t look like them – and are on sale again. But this time they’re up for grabs in places like Liquidation.com or bstock.com.

A recent search of clearance sites found a palette of 432 “pharmacy” articles — such as a nasal spray and contact solution — for $776. (“A 88% savings!”, the site claims, based on an estimated retail value of $6,964 for shipping 391 pounds.)

Another palette of “health and beautythe items had an estimated retail value of $25,160. The highest bid when we checked was $2,601.

Each pallet comes with a manifest explaining the contents inside the shipment. But what it doesn’t tell you is the state each item is in.

A YouTuber, Safiya Nygaard, spent $500 (after shipping) on ​​a palette of 50 various hygiene and beauty products. As she UNBOXED the shipment, she found some of the things were in good condition, such as unused soaps, makeup, and hair tools. But there was also a hairbrush (with hair in it) and the clean Waterpik teeth missing most of its key parts. Other items were just straight-up randomly, like a guitar case that was confusingly mixed up with the shipping.

Another YouTuber, who goes by the name HopeScope, Paid $1,032 for a shipment of clothing estimated to be worth over $9,000. She called it a “disaster” in her video, keeping only a small handful of stuff she bought and donating the rest.

Others have tried to ‘turn’ the pallets by reselling them for a profit. But as Nygaard points out in his video, most of the items have been used, which would make them hard to sell for their original retail value (at least in good conscience).

from Amazon announcement of the liquidation resale program from 2021 estimated that it would “bring more than 300 million products a second life each year”. It’s unclear what portion of Amazon’s returns end up in these clearance sales; the company declined to provide specific data on the number of returns it processes each year for “reasons of commercial sensitivity,” the spokesperson said.

Amazon also said it works with charities to donate “surplus product,” but didn’t say how many of its returns turn into donations.

“If there are no other options for reuse or recycling (for example, for legal or hygienic reasons, or because they are damaged), we send products for energy recovery – transforming waste that cannot be recycled into usable energy sources,” a spokesperson said.

What is energy recovery? This usually means they burn things, CNBC explains. Energy recovery consists of transforming non-recyclable materials into heat or fuel by means of “combustion, gasification, pyrolization, anaerobic digestion and landfill gas recovery”, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

An Amazon spokesperson called the option the company’s “last resort.”

Where to stream Friday the 13th movies in May 2022 http://amigaextreme.com/where-to-stream-friday-the-13th-movies-in-may-2022/ Fri, 13 May 2022 11:05:34 +0000 http://amigaextreme.com/where-to-stream-friday-the-13th-movies-in-may-2022/

It’s Friday the 13th today. We all know what that means. It’s time to watch the Friday 13 movies once again. Where can you stream them right now?

Whether you’re only interested in the first movie or want to watch the entire franchise, today is a good day for them. It’s the day of the year when Jason Voorhees goes out for revenge. Well, okay, his mother wants revenge in the first movie, but it’s Jason who shows up for the others.

There are 12 slasher movies in total. You probably won’t have time to go through them all. The first handful of movies are the best, but the flash and Supernatural fans will want to watch the 2009 rebooted film that just didn’t work to revive the franchise.

Are Friday the 13th Movies on Amazon?

There is bad news for those who only want to watch the movies with their Prime subscription. None of them are available on Prime Video.

You can, however, watch on Prime Video Channels. Some films are available on AMC+. The good news is that the first three movies are among those available, and we all know they’re the best. The fourth is also worth watching, and it’s also available on AMC+.

In fact, it looks like it’s possible to watch the first eight films. From there, it is more difficult to find them. You cannot watch the 2009 version on AMC+.

Get the movies digitally through Amazon Video

One of the best options is probably to get the Friday 13 films on digital. That means you buy them all through Amazon Instant Video. It will be expensive, so I suggest you only get the ones you are going to watch today first. You can add the others to your collection whenever you want to watch another one.

When you add them to your Amazon library by purchasing them, you can watch them whenever you want. There is no need to worry about where they will stream next.

Get the first set of Friday 13 movies on AMC+ via Main video channels.

FRL should not be allowed to start bankruptcy proceedings as it would further affect its rights, the online retail giant said in a letter that was seen by Mint.

In the letter, Amazon reiterated its request for a forensic investigation into FRL’s alleged misconduct.

“It is the duty of banks in India, specifically public sector banks, to ensure the fulfillment of fiduciary duty to the public. However, FRL’s lending banks acted in a completely irresponsible and collusive manner, despite having knowledge of FRL’s illegal actions. Thus, this letter is issued requesting that a forensic investigation be conducted regarding these collusive actions by the FRL and all of its lending banks,” Amazon said.

Amazon alleged that FRL was attempting to initiate a corporate insolvency resolution process through the Bank of India in order to utilize the provisions of Section 14 of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code to seek an unlawful injunction in the arbitration and ongoing litigation involving Future Retail.

Thus, the insolvency petition was deliberately filed by FRL in conjunction with the lenders and such actions should not be permitted, Amazon argued. Statutory authorities must hold lending institutions accountable for their “malicious conduct” and take appropriate action, he said.

The letter stated that despite its pre-existing rights, if the unlawful and malicious insolvency proceedings of the lending banks against FRL are permitted, there will be no liability for FRL’s retail assets.

This referred to Reliance Group’s takeover of Future Retail’s assets. Reliance Projects & Property Management took possession of around 800 Future Group stores in February, saying Future had failed to pay the rents of 4,800 crore for over a year.

Amazon also alleged that FRL’s collaboration with its lenders to sell the former’s smaller store formats through a framework agreement was part of a larger program to transfer or divest FRL’s retail assets. to the Reliance group. As part of the deal, FRL had offered to sell the small-format stores to raise approximately 3,000 crores to pay off the debt.

The deal was not the result of financial hardship and the banks participated in these actions despite having knowledge of such actions by FRL, Amazon alleged.

Amazon’s petition in the Delhi High Court seeks enforcement of an order by a Singapore-based arbitration tribunal that suspended the sale of Future Group’s retail assets to Reliance Retail.

“The alleged launch of insolvency resolution proceedings by the Bank of India is the latest attempt to whitewash the fraud that has been committed not only on Amazon but also on statutory regulators, thousands of retail investors and investors. other stakeholders. Such conduct, including on the part of the lending banks, establishes that the banks gave a reprieve to FRL by putting it into bankruptcy without seeking the responsibility of the promoters, the members of the board of directors and the direction of FRL, and conducting a proper investigation,” Amazon said.

Is Amazon Joining Ford in Selling RIVN Stock? http://amigaextreme.com/is-amazon-joining-ford-in-selling-rivn-stock/ Tue, 10 May 2022 11:51:12 +0000 http://amigaextreme.com/is-amazon-joining-ford-in-selling-rivn-stock/
  • Rivian shares fell more than 20% on Monday in a market sell-off.
  • Ford will sell 8 million shares of RIVN.
  • Unconfirmed rumors that Amazon is also selling Rivian.

Rivian (RIVN) has a number of events noted this week and none appear to be particularly beneficial to the stock price. RIVN stock cratered more than 20% on Monday in a market meltdown that saw the Nasdaq shed 4% while the S&P 500 lost 3%. Growth stocks and pandemic favorites again took the brunt of the sell-off. RIVN stock closed down 21% at $22.78.

Rivian went public late last year in November at $78 and traded as high as $179.45 a few days later. We have repeatedly warned that the valuation makes no sense to our readers and continue to remain bearish on the stock.

Rivian stock news: Who is selling RIVN shares?

Rivian will release its results after Wednesday’s close. Earnings per share are expected to reach -$1.44 and revenue is expected to reach $130.5 million. These numbers will not be what is important in the earnings call. The cash burn rate and production schedule will be much larger. The conference call should address supply chain issues and provide assurance that supplies are in order and can be continued. Note also the production target of 25,000 vehicles. Any reduction in this figure will lead to a sharp drop in RIVN stock.

Also noteworthy is the news reported by CNBC on Monday that blocks of Rivian are to be sold this week when the lockout period expires. Most stocks are subject to a lock-up period after an IPO. This means that top investors cannot quickly flip their shares. The traditional blocking period is 180 days and this week saw that period expire for Rivian. Up to 800 million shares could be available for sale after the lock-up period. CNBC reports that Ford and another anonymous investor are preparing to sell a decent amount of stock. Ford is expected to sell 8 million shares of its 102 million holdings. CNBC quoted sources as saying Ford hired Goldman Sachs for the stock sale.

CNBC also said another investor had hired JPMorgan to sell a block of Rivian shares on his behalf. The report says the block for sale will be 13-15 million shares. Naturally, speculation has mounted that it could be tied to Amazon which has a stake in Rivian. There are other holders who can of course also sell, but we will have to wait for SEC filings to see what happened. So far it’s just speculation.

Rivian (RIVN) Stock Forecast: Technicals and Fundamentals Align for More Bearish Action

Since the lock-up period has expired, this will add to the negative sentiment on RIVN shares. Although nothing can be negotiated, it always creates uncertainty. High-growth names have fallen out of favor and now valuations are falling dramatically, perhaps back to more acceptable levels. RIVN stock is down 85% from post-IPO highs and it still looks too high in our view.

Macro events dominate the markets. Witness the 90%+ days of downtime we had Thursday and now Monday. 90% of down days mean stock-specific information is ignored and general panic selling ensues. It’s not done yet. In such a situation, the flight to quality is obvious. Witness the surge of the US dollar and the stability of gold. The flight to quality also occurs in the stock market during times of stress. Value stocks and cash-rich companies will outperform those that consume cash and need capital.

Rivian is burning a lot of cash, its capital position is strong after its IPO, but it is still essentially a start-up.

From a technical point of view, there is not much to add. Clearly, RIVN stock is strongly bearish with a series of lows and lower highs. The RSI and MFI are not oversold, which leaves more room for downside. We expect earnings to be disappointing. All the way up at $53.64 is the bearish pivot, RIVN stock remains bearish below this level. $29.49 is immediate resistance, above which RIVN is neutral.
