    LIVE is insanly overvalued. Here is why.

    In online businesses and, especially, in coupon/promotion industry a revenue-per-visitor is a common metric. I invite you to crunch some numbers and see how LIVE is doing vs its competitor RetailMeNot. We'll use data Compete PRO data.

    RetailMeNot... Dec: 11,186,482 Jan: 7,603,384 Total: 18,789,866
    LiveDeal... Dec: 6,527 Jan: 3,835 Total: 10,362

    In sum, LiveDeal got 1,813 TIMES less unique visitors than RetailMeNot. Now let's take a look from the market capitalization perspective.

    RetailMeNot... 1.95B
    LiveDeal... 65M

    LiveDeal's market cap is 30 times smaller, not 1813 but only 30. How is it possible for a business where traffic is your bread and butter? It's not. LiveDeal is 60 times overvalued compared to RetailMeNot. Theoretically, 1.07M is what LIVE's market cap should really be.
