Emily Flippen: Welcome to Industry Focus. Today is Tuesday, April 27th, and I'm the host of this consumer goods focused episode, Emily Flippen. Today, I am joined by Motley Fool analyst, Asit Sharma, as we dive into the elusive world of third-party aggregators, people who go up and buy businesses that sell on sites like Amazon and Walmart. Asit, thanks so much for joining.
Asit Sharma: Emily, thank you for having me. This is a really exciting topic for me. Well, I thought it was going to be an exciting topic because I thought this was about those people who sell me a product with five stars, but when I use it, it's more like a two or a three-star [laughs] product on Amazon. That's not what we're talking about today, is it? [laughs]
