    How and Why????

    Profittaker8

    When I try to study the key statistics of LAVA vs SNPS, I found the followings:

    LAVA
    ----
    Market Cap = 550M
    Forward P/E = 20.42
    Profit Margin = - 34%
    Return on investments = negative
    Total Cash = 56M
    Total Debts = 66M
    Cash Flow = N/A

    SNPS
    ----
    Market Cap = 4.1B
    Forward P/E = 18.26
    Profit Margin = +4%
    Return on investments = +4%
    Total Cash = 679M
    Total Debts = nil
    Cash Flow = 240M

    How come LAVA's share prices jumped from $8 to $14.75 in the past 8 months while SNPS only moved from $17 to $28. I only have 100 LAVA shares but 400 SNPS shares simply because I believe in the fundamentals that my investment should be safer in a company with lots of cash and no debts. Why and where have I gone wrong that you suggest 75% LAVA and 25% SNPS instead?

    Now I wish I had 47 SNPS and 850 LAVA to start with instead of 100 LAVA and 400 SNPS. This is very very frustrating.

    Q.S.S.
