Amazon Rolls Out Another Retail Killer

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analysts Catherine Baab-Muguira and Lyons George discuss topics across the investing world.

Online giant Amazon has its eye on the clothing and accessory corner of the market -- it acquired Zappos in 2009 for $1 billion, and more recently, it's launched a flash-sales site called My Habit. In today's segment, research analysts Catherine and Lyons discuss whether Amazon has finally cracked the $200 billion fashion market and offered up a serious competitor to eBay, Nordstrom, and even Google.
