    Zillow is following in Amazon's footsteps. Rapidly grow revenue and don't make any money.


    I'm surprised that Zillow still can't report a positive EPS using non-GAAP measures


    Judging by the 2% sell-off the market is scoffing as the idea of a non-profitable company which just acquired another non-profitable company at over $3 billion.

    I used to think Zillow was a great company yet slightly overpriced at 90. I remember back when PCLN was $90. They actually had a profit then and at $140.


    I would like to ask a professional investor, i.e. NOT a professional trader, what their time horizon was for profit when buying Z at $140.


    I do not want the story. I get the story and it's full of fluffy sugar and fiber, but no meat. All that fiber from the CEO working its way through the system is looking to have a messy exit.

    No investor in his right mind will buy Z at 140. It's like a buying a dream. There is no sustainable growth story, profit and future dividend potential build in the metrics. No high entry costs, easily replicated by any big player, fragmented markets, not reliable data supplied by Z, which is supported by many customer complains etc. if you think about investing, I would suggest to stay away.
