  • So you think Amazon is a better long play then Google even though its twice as expensive? Scary. Good luck with that.

  • P/E ratios aren’t an integral factor in our models, so whether or not a security is perceived to be “expensive” doesn’t really matter. AMZN was more expensive than GOOG back in March, yet it’s out performance speaks for itself.

    Bear in mind that our model selects securities based on a weighted alpha factor coupled with momentum oscillators and price persistence algorithms. When you think about it from that angle, and not from a subjective P/E basis, it’s easy to see why the model likes AMZN more than GOOG now. Luck or not, I’m just glad we got the buy signal back on March 21st.
