Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos discusses his company's new Fire smartphone in Seattle, WashingtonBy Deepa Seetharaman SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Amazon.com Inc's message to investors has always been clear: trust in founder and CEO Jeff Bezos. Some on Wall Street wonder if Amazon may have bitten off more than it can chew. After an unusually busy first half of the year that saw the online retailer spend on developing everything from mobile phones and Hollywood-style production to grocery deliveries, investors are ready to see it curtail its ambitions and start delivering sustainable profits.

Shoppers encounter empty shelves as they shop Thursday, July 24, 2014 at the Market Basket supermarket in Haverhill, Mass. A decades-long family feud, which brought about the ouster of Arthur T. Demoulas as CEO of the privately held company, led to a worker revolt, customer boycotts and empty shelves in the grocery chain's stores in Maine, Massachusetts and New Hampshire. More than 100 Massachusetts legislators and mayors, Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley, and New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan have publicly supported the employees. (AP Photo)WEST BRIDGEWATER, Mass.

They're grocery store owners.
