    Why would ADBE trade at a 20 P/E?

    I know I know, there are forward PE's etc. But other than an acquisition possibility, what is so exciting about this stock? I see a very slow growth company that is facing increased competition. I see their growth being slower than Microsoft organically. The only way they can grow revenues fast enough is through acquisitions because they have a small enough denominator. I'm not just some short person pushing an agenda, I'm really curious what people think will be the growth engine for this company? Especially on the margin side of the business. The creative suite has all of the margins and has fueled the acquisitions and the earnings. While the other acquisitions are helping to grow the top line, I don't see earnings following suite. Look at the companies earnings before Adobe bought them. Thoughts?
