For a change of pace, let’s get things rolling with highlights from Amazon’s special event last Thursday (<10 min.). Compare and contrast with Apple’s the week before.

CNBC the next day ran this item: Amazon vs Apple

According to CNBC calculations, a $1,000 investment in Amazon in September 2008 would be worth more than $23,890 as of Friday morning, or more than 22 times as much, including price appreciation and dividends reinvested.

If you put $1,000 in Apple at the same time, your investment would be worth $12,299 now, or more than 11 times as much. While impressive, that’s $11,591 less than Amazon.
