We used Finviz to create a stock screener that will show companies trading similar to Facebook.
This is what we came up with:
P/E: Over 50
Forward P/E: Over 40
Current Dividend Yield: None
Historical Payout Ratio: None
Insider Transactions: Very Negative: more than 20% of insider shares being sold
52 Week High/Low: Current price is more than 5% below 52 week high
Full screen can be viewed here. As you can see, only 3 other companies share Facebook’s elite market status.
