Amazon Stock Gets a Price Upgrade Ahead of Holiday Quarter Earnings

Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) was uniquely positioned to take advantage of the pandemic. The rapid increase in online shopping has been a huge boost to the company. With coronavirus vaccines now being distributed, are Amazon shareholders going to feel a letdown? Don’t count on it. In fact, Amazon stock just got a big price target increase, with a Bank of America analyst predicting AMZN will hit $4,000.

Affordable And Luxury Black-Owned Beauty Brands To Shop This Holiday

So let’s skip the small talk. This 15 ml bottle of eye serum costs $147. It’s from a luxury skincare brand, Epara, and its market are people who choose to invest a bigger buck in their cosmetics.

And as a woman in my 30s more intentional about consuming luxury and more intentional about what I put in and on my body, I LOVE THIS FOR US!

Before we even get into the performance of the product (spoiler alert: it’s great!), there’s a void of luxury created by Black people and marketed to Black people in both the fashion and beauty space. There’s long been this notion that Black consumers devalue luxury brands, when

Top holiday gift ideas on Amazon

(CNN) —  

Holiday shopping can be, admittedly, a bit overwhelming. With thousands of options, it can be hard to find gifts that are worthy of your favorite people. But on Amazon, it’s easier to cut through the clutter to discover the most beloved products across home, beauty, fashion and tech, thanks in large part to filters and extremely passionate online reviewers.

So to help you out with your holiday shopping, we found top-rated items on Amazon with a 5-star or nearly 5-star rating, and hundreds — if not thousands — of positive reviews.

To be sure these were indeed highly rated products backed by real consumers, we used third-party tools, including FakeSpot, to filter out any products or sellers with reviews that were deceptive. To read more about how to avoid falling victim to fake reviews when shopping, read our guide here.

If one thing is for sure, when it comes to fashionistas, it’s hard not to immediately think of style icon Nicole Richie. Fashion and the tiny trendsetter are synonymous at this point (thanks to her culture-shifting fashion brand House of Harlow 1960, of course).
