Michael Batnick, director of research at Ritholtz Wealth Management, joins CNBC’s ‘Tech Check’ to argue why he thinks Jeff Bezos will come back to lead Amazon this year (CNBC). YouTube Tips ⓘ
Michael Batnick: “Well listen, I’m not a Bezos whisperer, I’m not a tech expert, I don’t even necessarily know what the cloud is; but here’ what I do know, Jeff Bezos is an extremely rich man, who got a lot less rich last year because the company he spent building his life is struggling big time.” Perhaps he meant the life he spent building his company.
This segment was panned by viewers in the YouTube comments section for lack of credibility.
“I like this guy, but he contradicts himself a lot on his own show so I cannot take this seriously. This guy lacks confidence in what he is saying.”
“CNBC spent time on this wild speculation with this fool. I am not surprised.”
The interview was really nothing more than an exercise in considering the unexpected. There are no sources or signs quoted. The speculation raised is more like something you’d think up while you’re taking a shower, or dream up in a short afternoon nap.
