@duma - for what it's worth, I always think that P/S is a key metric that is important to consider. It's not the only metric - in the hyper-growth stocks that are preferred on this board, it is not as important as revenue growth, and various related metrics. And I think it always needs to be balanced against the company's moat - to me the moat represents pricing power and the ability to grow both the top line and the margin.

Personally, I select companies that I want to own, and buy them at prices I can live with. If I feel a company is overbought/oversold I tend to sell puts (at a level where I'm comfortable owning the stock if assigned) or covered calls to give me some protection and income, while keeping ownership of the company I still believe in.
