    Poor Operating Metrics

    In my first pass at financials, I note poor historical metrics. They have juiced up their revenue but operating expenses rise faster than revenues. This means they are getting poorer and poorer return on investments for marketing dollars spent. Operating earnings are declining while sales increase.

    Tangible equity is decreasing over time as a percentage of assets.

    The return on invested capital also looks very bad.

    I cannot make any sense of the valuation at all.
