Some valuations to dream about...
amazing how a good piece of research makes its way around
Post from Silicon Investor...
Posted from Yahoo:
Instead of simply looking at
market cap as a comparison, I feel you can get a
better idea on comparitive values in the newer (or not
yet profitable) ecommerce
companies by looking at
the price to revenues ratio (P/R). Based on this
comparison, even with AWEB's recent drop, ABTL is still the
AWEB has a P/R of 12.72 while ABTL has
a P/R of only 8.66. If you assume
that AWEB is
fairly priced, that would equate to a current price for
about 40.5. When you look further and
compare ABTL with some of the other
recent ipos or
allow yourself to dream and look at some of the
darlings, ABTL appears to have a room to
explode. The P/R numbers for
ABTL, AWEB, PCLN
(rediculous), VUSA, IVIL, TURF, EBAY and AMZN
EBAY.......... 270.12 (profitable but still
As long as ABTL
continues to show some strong growth over the next few
quarters with the international efforts and dealer
recruitment and retention, having
a P/R around 50 or more
seems realistic (at current sales, that equals a price
160). It definitely looks like a good time to
be long. Does anyone have any
thoughts on this?

IT COMES TO MIND BECAUSE...............
PUSSY-CAT WON'T BOUNCE...................
HOW CAN I
SHORT THE BOUNCE IF THIS P.O.S WON'T BOUNCE???
The behavior of AOL right now is no suprise. All
we need to do is go back to last quarters earnings.
AOL traded up strongly through the end of January.
Before earnings were released, AOL hit an Intraday high
of 177. After earnings were released, over the next
7 trading sessions, AOL dropped about 30 points to
147. It then traded in a range until the split, and
next leg up. Going into earnings this past quarter,
AOL again rallied to 167 intraday. After the release,
we have gone down to 133. Again about 34 points. The
difference this time is that AOL has so many analysts behind
it with strong buy ratings and price targets in the
200's. Can you just imagine what this thing will do
going into this summers earnings??? I am willing to be
patient while this great stock catches it's breath,
because next time, we are flying right through 200. 10 to
12 weeks away folks. The summer will be great for
internets. I forsee the Lycos/USA deal voted down, along
with a full IPO schedule. With the best internets
beating earnings YHOO AOL AMZN and EBAY, next quarter
will be even better. Look for June, July as great
months, then again in November, December...
bits. Be patient.
"AOL also may have backed away from MediaOne to
avoid alienating AT&T since it may want to partner with
the long distance
leader -- and its vast, new
cable TV holdings -- in the future, analysts said. AOL
and other Internet service providers wanting to offer
high-speed World Wide Web access have been lobbying for
access to cable TV networks."
