The problem with these stocks is that they are not worth their price.

 

Personally I don't like Apple or their products, sure they are convenient but they do obstruct Life, and have hurt many business, especially the printed word and all associations there of.

 

Priceline is a nice convenience but not always the best price.

 

Real Estate Development has caused more damage to this country and elsewhere by over building, specifically when soo many of their Strip Malls Malls and homes are either poorly built or are empty due to satuaration, personally there is no need for more as so many places stand empty and deteriorating to crumbs.

 

Washingon Post----no surprise there!

 

Google I do believe has lost much its focus toward competing with Apple. EX. Do we really need and want Google Glasses or Apple want to be watch? Think before answering and acknowledge that much of the tech toys we own and seek eventually do end up in the ocean as they are made with plastics! Thus add the to the world's pollution enormously!

This is an absolutely idiotic "article".  You don't base valuation on a company by its share price, you do so by its MARKET CAP.  Idiots.

If all stocks had the P/E valuation of Amazon, the stock market would be worth at least 10 times what it is worth now.  So I guess when the author says the investors hope that Jeff Bezos can do at the Washington Post what he has done with Amazon, (s)he means they hope Bezos can get people to pay an outrageous multiple for the stock.

The value of an individual stock is of little value what is more important is the the value of the company and PE ratios. A $100000 company with ten shares of stock outstanding would be trading for $10 k per share even though the company has little value. Most companies would split there stock to keep prices low to encourage trading and inflated values.
