There was one year for YELP in 2013 when its P/S reached 22 from 7 the year before.....before falling to 12 and then 4 in subsequent two years.

In that year, the stock increased 266%.

Then.....

2014 -21%
2015 -47%
2016 32%
2017 10%

NOW had a single year in 2013 when its P/S got to 20....next years stock return was 54% the following year and then a lesser but positive return the next.

WDAY is another stock that joins BIDU and FB for 3 years P/S above 20. It has some parallels with ZS in that it came out of the gates with a high P/S:


P/S Return
2012 38
2013 35 53%
2014 21 -2%
2015 14 -2%
2016 9 -17%
2017 10 54%


So we have 3 stocks now with 3 years of high P/S and can see what the subsequent stock returns were in few years after. We also have 2 other stocks with a single year above 20.

Anyone else?
