12:22 EDTAMZN, FDXFAA says Amazon.com pays $91,000 civil penalty
Amazon.com (AMZN) paid in full a $91,000 civil penalty that the U.S. Department of Transportationís Federal Aviation Administration had proposed against the Seattle, Wash. company for violating Department of Transportation Hazardous Materials Regulations. On September 16, 2013, Amazon employees improperly shipped a package containing flammable liquid adhesive by air on Federal Express (FDX) from Whitestown, Ind., to Boulder, Colo. FedEx employees in Boulder discovered a gallon container of the adhesive was leaking.The adhesive is classified as a hazardous material under Department of Transportation regulations. Amazon offered the shipment without the requisite shipping papers or emergency response information, and did not mark, label, or properly package the shipment. Amazon also failed to properly train its employees in preparing HazMat packages for shipment by air. The FAA issued the proposed civil penalty letter in late February.

11:47 EDTAMZNAmazon unlikely hurt by Google Buy button in next 3 years, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said he does not expect Google's (GOOG) addition of a "Buy" button for mobile e-commerce hurting Amazon.com (AMZN) over the next 1 to 3 years, but he does believe Google's plan presents a longer-term threat to "chip away" at Amazon's growth rate. However, Munster thinks it will be "next to impossible" for Google to replicate Amazon's core infrastructure and customer experience and he keeps an Overweight rating and $475 price target on Amazon shares.
