    Not as ridiculous as LNKD. CRM trades around 8.3 times trailing p/s whereas LNKD, a 18.3 billion market cap trades at around 18.9 trailing p/s. Internet bubble 2.0.

    May not be ridiculous as LNKN, but CRM is still overprices in current market conditions. Let it trade up...how many more buyers are there at this level? It will trade higher, but be ready to take profits and go short. CRM should be trading at 130.
