    MGI lost money again. XOOM strong customer complaints

    For XOOM, see the recent Seeking Alpha article and likely for-pay goosing of online reviews.

    XOOM trades at 8X sales, like V and MAC. WU trades at 1.4X. Anyone think XOOM should trade at over 5X the sales multiple of WU? XOOM is a viable company if it works the bugs out but it is probably a $5 stock. Eventually the market will quit overvaluing startupness and start valuing actual performance.

    MGI lost money on non-recurring items, but MGI has such volatile earnings and such low margins, and non-recurring items recur with such frequency (even if different every time), that the company can't be said to be consistently or predictably profitable. (It trades for 0.8X sales).
