Online retailer Amazon is set to create more than 5,000 jobs in Britain this year, the company said on Monday, boosting its investment in the country once more even as it prepares to leave the European Union.
Amazon, along with other tech giants such as Google and Apple, has increased its commitment to Britain in the last year, saying Britain’s referendum decision to leave the EU last June did not affect its investment plans.
The plans to add over 5,000 jobs in 2017 is a record for Amazon in Britain, although at least 2,000 of the jobs had been previously announced. The moves would take its permanent workforce in the country to 24,000.
Some things, even huge piles of money can’t buy.
One of those things might be the ability to unseat Amazon.com Inc.’s [stckqut]AMZN[/stckqut] AWS as the king of the cloud computing market. Not that others haven’t made a game effort. The two largest challengers— Microsoft Corp.[stckqut]MSFT[/stckqut] and Google parent Alphabet Inc.[stckqut]GOOGL[/stckqut]—have dropped about $52 billion combined in capital expenditures over the past three years, much of which goes toward their massive networks of data centers and related equipment. That’s double what the two spent over the previous three-year period.
It’s not been without results. Microsoft’s Azure cloud service more than doubled its revenue in 2016 to about $2.7 billion, according to estimates from J.P. Morgan. Google’s Cloud Platform surpassed $1 billion in revenue in 2016, estimates Aaron Kessler of Raymond James.
The latter is particularly of note, given that it’s been barely a year since Google brought in former VMware chief Diane Greene to run the cloud division and focus on enterprise customers. It took AWS at least five years to hit the $1 billion mark, judging from Amazon’s limited disclosures at the time.

As an example of the success that my book teaches, in a 7 year time frame from January 3, 2006 to December 31, 2012, Decker Corporation increased 304.7% if you would have implemented a pure buy-and-hold strategy. If you would implemented the strategy that I explain in my book, The Confident Investor, you would have seen a 371.2% return on your investment. This is a 21.8% increase on the profit percentage.
Can your investment system beat the market by that much?
