All 3 of the companies mentioned have P/E ratios that are high. While they may provide valuable services I doubt the growth that is built into the stock price will be true. If you get your investment advice from MSN odds are you have not made much money in the market. Only the use of insider information can insure consistent returns which is illegal unless you are a large financial institution or a politician in which case it is perfectly fine.
