Jeff Yastine, the editorial director at Banyan Hill Publishing, recently identified three stocks to invest in, that he believes will not fail at the hands of American electronic commerce juggernaut, Amazon. In December of 2018, Mr. Yastine touched on a new trend, whereas companies are now preferring to grow their companies through mergers and acquisitions, as opposed to through organic processes. The frantic pace in which this will occur will provide benefits to a number of investors, as rivals of Amazon may seek to strengthen their chances of effectively competing. His prediction was immediately proved to be true, as the stock value of the Brazilian aircraft manufacturer, Embraer, rose significantly as talks of a merger with Boeing began gaining traction. Based on his experience as an anchor with PBS Nightly Business Report, Mr. Yastine became familiar with the ins-and-outs of big-box companies and then shifted his attention to retailers.
Kroger tops the lists of companies to take on Amazon, as the well-established grocery store chain is currently operating close to 3,000 stores around the nation, and is in a great spot to take on Whole Foods, who, since being acquired by Amazon last year, has not seen any significant price drops in regards to their products, and may actually be on the decline. Because Kroger is now one of the most prominent sources of organic foods, as well as the fact that they plan to implement automated checkout systems this year, which will cut overhead costs, Jeff Yastine feels that they are in prime position to make the leap.
eBay is also on the list of companies to watch out for, as they are still one of the most popular online auction sites in the world, having a variety of clients and products. Jeff Yastine is of the opinion that eBay is already in position to rival Amazon in several categories of the retail sector, but with companies like Google in the picture to acquire it, could really see an incredible boost to stock value.

Lastly, Jeff Yastine touched on W.W. Grainger, which offers items such as safety equipment, office supplies, and shelves to other businesses, as being a great stock investment, and target of acquisition due to its solid infrastructure. Although its stock price recently fell due to concerns over its ability to take on Amazon with a real level of success, potential buyers would love to take advantage of its distribution and storage facilities, which they would gain upon acquisition.
