  1. I’m willing to bet Facebook will put Apple share price gains to shame this quarter. I don’t get it. How does Facebook keep making all that money? I simply don’t understand what makes that social media stuff so valuable. A couple of years back I’d heard that Facebook wasn’t all that relevant to people anymore but obviously that was a poor assessment of the company’s staying power. It’s another one of those companies with a jacked-up P/E and supposedly huge future potential that excites investors to no end. Beats me. It kind of seems to me like AOL used to be in the 1990s and early 2000s.

    Apple pulls serious revenue and profits and has a reserve cash pile with no equal yet Facebook outperforms it. That’s so odd. I feel really stupid that I can’t find the key metric that makes companies valuable.
