  • CRM SalesFARCE dot com price target $60 in 12 months 1 comment
    Nov 18, 2011 11:03 PM | about stocks: CRM
    Finally the time is nigh for the SALESFARCE.COM's deluge. Now that the chart is technically crippled, only value/fundamental investors remain...of which there are equal in numbers to black swans. I've waited almost two years for this, and will celebrate the imminent recovery of jaw-dropping losses this weekend. Yeah!

    On a valuation basis, I would give it a 25X operating cash flow of 300$ m. Add $800m of cash from balance sheet and you get a price target of $60 on 145m shares outstanding.  I think even this is generous.

    This baby is going to fall hard to the ocean's bottom; even Mark's dolphins wont resuscitate it.

    Author’s reply » Another sure thing is sh price will fall, now dramatically as technicals crippled.$ 60 is an optimistic realistic valuation. See my note on 30 x real op cash flow multiple. Waited 2 yrs for this, now to be realised in 3 months. See model on my article. Phew!
