    Shows a 55.59 Price/Earnings

    Larry is right. It trades (just like most stocks do at the end of the day) on forward P/E which is around 30.

    It seems high because of a technical mathematical term ... heteroscasticity. Basically, it just past over the negative earnings into positive (low) earnings and growing. But because the earnings are comparatively low the "E" is small... hence a high PE ratio.

    It should normalize in 18-24 months to traditional PE (ttm and fwd) metrics.

    For now... PEs mean very little.
