    news or mistake

    >>>This is a tech stock, not a bank, it deserves a high PE<<<

    Not necessarily true. P/Es depend on three things: (1) earnings growth, but near-term and secular; (2) earnings quality; (3) earnings predictability.

    There are companies that grow a fast rate near-term, but those earnings are highly unpredictable. This is typical of cyclical stocks.

    Best of example of fast growing stocks but with low P/Es:

    Housing stocks. Growth rates of 15-plus percent well over the past 15 years. Forward P/Es...6-9x.
