and for that matter the valuation concerns for other high p/e stocks. from the motley fool

"if i perform a simple cash flow model and discount at only 20% I find that juniper has to earn $184 per share in year 10 to justify its current share price, an annual increase of 73%. assuming that the company's cash flow margins stay the same (the rule makers cash king margin), juniper will have to grow its annual revenues from $452 million (quarter two's revenues annualizied) to $108 billion in the next decade. that means that in year 2010 juniper will have to sell $15.32 worth of its equipment for eery man, woman, and child in the world to justify its current mkt cap"

this really blows your mind away. have valuation gone that much into the twilight zonE? if so these days of mkt doubts would translate into commiting suicide owning such a security. any knowledgbe poster please add to this analysis. thanks
