OK, I said it.
If Google can do the
2007 number Lehman
put out this morning -- $9.38 EPS -- you are talking about a stock that's just plain inexpensive. You would be buying this company at less than 1 times its growth rate of 33%.
That's nutty cheap.
If you use the
comparison, it should sell at $500 now.Of course, Yahoo! could be overvalued, so you could go wrong with that.
But as I read through this Lehman estimate bump, I am blown away at the earnings power of this money machine.
The stock goes higher.
I am sticking by my $350 target, though, as I think that $7.00 next year --not $7.53 as Lehman says -- is still more realistic until I know more.
