Walmart The retail corporation’s shares dropped — yet gained since its previous closing — thanks to a pre- market jump. Thursday’s drop above the surface comes on weak earnings expectations.

Investors, though, need to know they’re paying a rich price for a company that seems unstoppable. Shares of Amazon are up 82% this year through Thursday’s close, making it one of the best performers in the Standard & Poor’s 500. And that’s before investors saw how well the company did during the third quarter. The stock jumped roughly 10% in after-hours trading from Thursday’s closing price of $563.91. It’s not just speculators piling in — the company’s fundamentals have been markedly better than expected for two consecutive quarters. Amazon reported a n adjusted profit of 17 cents a share during the third quarter, beating expecta- t ions calling for a loss of 13 cents a share. T he second quarter was a similar story. Amazon earned 19 cents a share on an ad- j usted basis, rather than losing 14 cents a share as expected. D on’t think you’re the only one to notice, though. Amazon shares trade for 366 times expected 2015 adjusted profit, S&P Capital IQ says, making the stock richly priced even if it grows at 63% a year as expected. New Constructs, which examines expected future cash flow, rates Amazon “dangerous.” INVESTINGASK MATT Q: Is online retailer Amazon overvalued? Matt Krantz USA TODAY For investors, A mazon may be too richly priced WASHINGTON Automotive safety regulators may expand the largest vehicle recall in U.S. history as their probe into exploding air b ags continues, o cials said Thursday. National Highway Tra c Safet y Administration o cials also said they are considering forcing a utomakers to accelerate repairs of the air bags made by Japan’s T akata, a key industry supplier, which can rupture violently, hurl- i ng shrapnel into drivers and passengers. R uptured Takata air bags have killed at least eight people, all in Honda vehicles, and injured 98, according to NHTSA. Investigators acknowledged that the exact cause of the exploding air bags remains a mys- t ery, but their probe continues. They have determined, however, that vehicles that have been o perated in hot, humid climates for at least five years are most at r isk. That suggests that climate is acontributing factor in the mal- f unctioning air bag inflators, regulators said. I n a new development, NHTSA said Thursday that it has expand- e d its investigation to include a side air bag inflator that has ruptured in accidents involving General Motors and VW vehicles. The agency said it may hire an independent adviser to oversee the Takata fixes. At an informa- t ional hearing, NHTSA regulators revealed details of Takata’s ballistic testing. In those procedures, 4 50 out of 115,000 recalled infla- tors have exploded in lab tests. P assenger-side air bags are 10 times as likely as driver air bags t o rupture, regulators said, but they are less likely to cause d eaths or injuries. Regulators suspect that may be because f ront-seat passengers sit farther away from the air bag than drivers. NHTSA administrator Mark Rosekind said at an informational hearing in Washington, D.C., that he would make a decision by T hanksgiving on whether to order faster recalls. The agency may also expand the number of vehi- c les and manufacturers involved in the recall. “ That’s part of what the investigation is looking at — whether o r not we have to go further,” Ro- sekind says.

After busting through a key price ceiling Thursday, the Standard & Poor’s 500 stock index is now within striking distance of climbing back into the black for the year. Back on Aug. 25, when the large-company stock index was down 12.4% from its May high, o more than 9% for the year, and su ering through its first 10% drop, or correction, in four years, few bulls expected the market to mount this type of comeback. But the market has defied skeptics, many who argued that a major bear market was brewing. Thursday, the S&P 500 climbed within four points, or less than two-tenths of a percentage point, of its 2014 close of 2,058.90. After rallying 34 points, or 1.7%, to 2,052.51, the benchmark index not only busted out above the 2,040 to 2,045 level that had been acting as a price ceiling for weeks, it also put Wall Street on notice that climbing back into the black for 2015 is more than just wishful thinking. Thursday’s rally was driven by asurprisingly strong profit report from burger giant McDonald’s and hints from the European Central Bank that more stimulus could be on the way to boost flag- ging eurozone growth. Those drivers built on prior ones, namely the belief that the Federal Reserve will hold o on interest rate hikes until 2016 and the fact China’s economy did not implode. Wall Street will be watching Friday to see if the market can get back into positive territory for the year. If it does, it will bolster the case for a year-end rally.
