    9x book 2x sales 40x earnings

    I think that serious investors look at the enterprize value to cash flow as being more important than the ratios which you cite. Also, the book value ratio has been increased by the high share repurchase program. Finally, the eps projection for the current year is about $3.20, which would make the multiple about 24x. All that being said, the current price reflects optimism about the future on a par with the rest of the market. The market itself is overvalued from a historical standpoint by at least 25%, and perhaps as much as 50%. It is hard to find undervalued companies in this market, just ask Warren Buffett.
