    • "Reason 1: the fundamentals (of Yelp) don't look attractive at all. I understand that companies like Yelp should trade like a start-up company and investors shouldn't worry too much about fundamentals. Yet, I can't help but notice that the company has never been profitable and that its chances of being highly profitable in the future are slim. Every time Yelp is able to grow its revenues, it ends up growing its expenses at an even faster rate. Yelp has a large sales department and the company's revenue growth barely keeps up with expenses. For example, in 2009, Yelp generated $25.81 million in revenues, but it spent $22.58 on administration and sales, and another $3.24 million on research and development. Next year, Yelp's revenues jumped to $47.73 million whereas its operating expenses jumped to $57.24. In 2011, as the revenues grew to $83 million, operating expenses grew to $99 million. Last year, Yelp generated $137 million in revenues and spent $156 million to generate that revenue. Year to date, Yelp generated $101 million in revenues, but spent $106 million on operations. At some point, the company's revenues will have to grow a lot faster than its expenses do, but this has never happened in the company's history. Yelp currently trades for 14 times its expected revenues and infinity times its earnings (since it doesn't have positive earnings or positive operating income)."

There are tens of news stories where local business owners claim that Yelp's sales people approach them with promises of ............
