At a p/e ratio of 329 - with a company with high profit margins like google - that price is a steal - and not for investors.

The auction is fair - supply and demand, but people stand just as much - if not more of a chance of getting hurt on this as making money.

Tulip Bulbs, Housing, Google - doesn't matter what it is - when every loves it - good things happen for a while - and then....
