Is Now 'Prime' Buying Season for Amazon Stock?

Amazon is Real Money's Stock of the Day.

The internet giant's fifth annual Prime Day event began this morning at 12 am PST and will run for 48 hours this year, 12 hours longer than last year's 36 hour Prime Day.

Despite #BoycottAmazon and #AmazonStrike trending on twitter amid outcry for better working conditions and attacks from both sides of the political aisle, analysts estimate the two-day spending spree could generate more than $6.1 billion in total sales.

That would be a 46% increase from last year and would fall just shy of the $6.22 billion recorded during last year's Black Friday sales period.
