A couple of days ago I got a copy of the City A.M. financial newspaper and the front cover lead with a report on Google's quarterly earnings.
They said the Google (Alphabet) company had made around $20 billion in one quarter. So some quick maths makes that $80 billion/year*.
*A disclaimer is that not all companies have even earnings over the course of a year, e.g. travel companies make their money in the Summer.
Anyway, Google is currently worth around $670 billion.
I make that a valuation of 85 months earnings (or 7 years).
Given that Flippa sites typically sell for between 12 and 24x their monthly earnings does that make Flippa sites really cheap, or is Google overvalued?
Sure, Google is largely valued on future earnings potential. But then so are Flippa sites!
In fact Flippa sites can probably grow a lot more than the behemoth that is Alphabet. I mean aside from its advertising arm and Android, most of what Google does makes little to no money.
So what do you think?
