Zoom Is Now Worth More Than The World's 7 Biggest Airlines

"The world has changed for the airlines. The future is much less clear to me about how the business will turn out."

- Warren Buffett

What Does the Future Hold?

Zoom’s recent success is a product of its circumstances, but will it last? That’s a question on the mind of many investors and pundits ahead of the company’s Q1 results to be released in June.

It hasn’t been all smooth-sailing for the company—a spate of “Zoom Bombing” incidents, where uninvited people hijacked meetings, brought the app’s security measures under scrutiny. However, the company remained resilient, swiftly providing support to combat the problem.

Meanwhile, as many parts of the world begin taking measures to restart economic activity, airlines could see a cautious return to the skies—although any such recovery will surely be a “slow, long ascent”.

With both Facebook and Google announcing that they plan to take on Zoom, it's days are numbered. They will become like the Palm Pilot or Netscape. $ZM

Yawn, their tech is nothing spectacular and there is going to be increased competition by others who can offer the same thing without getting barred by the US government and most tech leaders who found them dencrypting messages in China and then re-encrypting them. The only thing that keeps people from shorting this back to the ground is that undoubtedly they will get a huge portion of the Chinese market and may be bought out by a US tech company someday. It is always easier to buy clients than it is to build them over time.

Yes, the tech giants have already set their eyes on Zoom. Their days are numbered and their lack of security features and constant "zoombombs" will continue to plague the company.

#Zoom is a $20 dollar stock masquerading as part of #FAANG. $ZM

#Zoom P/E is almost at 2000. Way over priced. That’s dangerous for investors.

The new age market doesn't care about valuations. It's crazy. Just look at shop. Already priced for future earnings 10 years out.

I know it’s crazy. It just shows people are not doing dd. I looked up #zoom to buy and was so surprised at the p/e number. The p/e should be at 13-30. 2000??? One bad or even neutral news this stock will fall off a cliff. $ZM
