The learning curve

From Yahoo, we can see that ZM has a PS ratio of 91; CRWD has a PS ratio of 37; and DDOG has a PS ratio of 18; so on this basis it would tell me that the best place to put my new money is into DDOG.

I saw this in a post today. [more]

Re: Why I bought LLNW

Smorg has pointed out how Video is a hard market in which to find differentiation. I've wondered why, if that's the case, Limelight is managing to consistently attract high-value customers.

Re: Why I bought LLNW

My main concern with LLNW is - why did their Gross Profit Margin decline to only 36% in the latest Q? That's awfully low, and declined from 44% in the previous Q.

I actually see this, counter-intuitively, as a positive. It dipped [more]

Yes, Limelight is still being used to stream Amazon Prime Video. Amazon Prime includes lots of things that don't use Limelight, but the video streaming appears to be mostly Limelight. If anything, it appears that Amazon is using less and less [more]
