    Say this comment on CNBC

    I was watching CNBC for a moment today and they were commenting how Las Vegas Sands (LVS) shares were up today because an analyst had said that the shares looked like "great value" here at 11 times EV/EBITDA.

    I had to shake my head because it was only a short while ago that I had posted how ESI shares were at a 1.8 EV/EBITDA multiple and that other companies were getting taken out at 10 times EV/EBITDA all the time. Now I see this buy recommendation on a company that has missed estimates and whose shares have dropped from $60 to $43 where the valuation is still 11 times EV/EBITDA.

    This is a remarkable 6 times more than the valuation of ESI.

    Just goes to show that valuation does not matter on anything until enough people decides it should matter.
