Dividends and Trump says he’s reviewing Amazon’s bid for Pentagon contract

When government departments have very large contracts, it is reasonable they should pass the President’s desk. One of the large departments is the Pentagon and the Department of Defense is on the final stages of a $10 billion cloud contract with Amazon. The President seems to have a love hate relationship with the owner of the Washington Post.

The biggest companies in cloud computing are Amazon, Microsoft, Oracle and IBM. Naturally the companies who are not listed as first choice are voicing their opinion to the President.

Linking to dividend paying stocks, in democratic countries we expect a process to be followed particularly with very latge contracts. With President Trump who claims he is a master of deal making  one never knows if the process is to be followed or he will change rules.

There are more questions than answers, till the next time – to raising questions.
