Hi Chuckc3444,
ZVO's revenue has decreased since 2017 about 7% a year.
Chegg's revenue has increased on average about 17% a year since 2017

valuation isn't stock price. There are a number of different ways to talk about valuation that all tell you slightly different things. I'd encourage you to read about p/e rations, ev/s ratios, ev/fcf. All are applicable in different scenarios and people are coming up with different ways to compare companies all the time.

I think you answered your own questions though in this particular case. Why would you buy a company that is getting smaller every year vs one that is getting bigger? My only answer is, you expect the company to perform a turn around. I personally don't invest in turn arounds because as buffet or munger famously said...they have a habit of not turning around.

Best of luck with your investing.
