    How about comparing P/E

    ratios then....

    ROOM= P/E of 205 to
    1
    Microsoft= 45 to 1
    AOL= 108 to 1
    DELL 56 to 1
    Home
    Depot= 45 to 1

    My point is that even some of the
    best companies in the country (internet related and
    otherwise) don't hold a P/E ratio even close to
    ROOM.

    I like ROOM as a company...I've even used their
    services a few times. The problem is the excessive
    valuation.

    Luckily for me, I was able to find ROOM in time and short
    some shares. Once it gets down to a reasonable market
    cap., I'll cover, and may even go long on the stock.
