Seth Klarman Comments on Twitter

March 11, 2014 | About:

Twitter (TWTR), for example, surged from $26 to almost $45 on day one, and closed the year around $64. It was priced, after all, at only twenty times its projected 2015 revenue. One analyst suggests the profitless company might achieve $50 million of “adjusted” cash earnings this year, giving it a P/E of over 500. Some hedge and mutual funds are again investing in late-stage, pre-IPO financing rounds for hot Internet companies at valuations that only seem reasonable if the companies go public, soon, and at astronomical prices.

From Seth Klarman (Trades, Portfolio)'s fourth quarter 2013 letter to shareholders.
