TOP COVERAGE TERMS FOR JANUARY 2014:
"Despite its new ventures, Amazon is still primarily a retailer, which makes its growth all the more remarkable. Amazon revenue grew 22 percent in 2013. Walmart’s sales, by comparison, rose only 2.2 percent. Amazon, in fact, is growing faster than global e-commerce sales, which according to eMarketer rose 18 percent last year.
"'Amazon has a reputation among consumers of being the lowest price, even if they are not always, and of having the best shipping,’ said Yoram Wurmser, an eMarketer retail analyst. ‘Eventually they’ll run out of white space but in the meantime they are entering new markets like groceries.'"
"Research firm eMarketer estimates that world-wide spending on digital ads totaled $120 billion last year, 23% of all ad spending. That is up from $104 billion, or 21% of ad spending, a year earlier.
"The biggest beneficiary has been Google, which reports earnings on Thursday. EMarketer says Google grabbed one-third of online ad sales last year—nearly six times the share of No. 2 player Facebook."
