Zoom Has Zoomed – But Can it Continue for Much Longer?


Demand for ZOOM Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: $ZM) and its video conferencing platform has surged and its stock price has moved up substantially since the beginning of the year (131%).

As efforts to halt the spread of COVID-19 have forced millions to stay at home, many have turned to Zoom to set up online meetings.

Zoom usage rose from 10 million daily meeting participants, one year ago, to over 300 million today. A true feast for hackers.

Yet, it not quite certain how Zoom is actually counting their users/visitors. It may turn out to be a play on words. “Zoom could count the same person five times if they attend five Zoom meetings in a day.”

NASA, Apple (AAPL), SpaceX, and many investors are choosing to ditch Zoom.

Zoom has nowhere to go but down ?

The company went public in March last year, opening at $65 per share.

Today, it is trading at $158.80 with a forward P/E ratio of 1650.25 (!) – Absolutely obscene.

At its peak, Facebook had a 35X earnings multiple (read our call on shorting facebook).

We call the BS, and suggest shorting Zoom ($ZM).
IBR price target $58.
