Profitable company, but price is too dear. EPS is only $0.44 and book value is only $1.09/share. Google, a very similar company, is selling at P/E 20 and P/B about 3.5. A similar valuation would put this company at a price around $3 to $9 per share. $25/share is too high for this stock, even given favorable growth prospects. See http://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1513845/000104746911004187/a2203514zf-1.htm for full details.P.S. If you must speculate with your money in this new internet bubble, this is a much better bet than LinkedIn, but I would not buy either at this point.

How are Yandex and Google similar other than business model? One is mature and dominant, the other an emerging market dynamo ...

CAPS shouldn't highlight these old posts since they're often outdated (as is this one).

Mel from Kent Ct. says:- The Russians & various CIS countries can ONLY speak, read, write, sound, & EVEN THINK in Russian alphabets... words...etc.( even if they are writting in Iranian language they use the Russian alphabet!!!. ... weird ....HUH??) On top of it all... those people including the Russians are basically "stuck" in Russia ( there are NOT that many countries I can think of that speak Russian!), & the CIS people can only go to Russia....& the mostly Muslim CIS people do NOT want to go to the Middle East because they are NOT learned / highly educated like in the west... ) & they know that will be treated MUCH worse in the Middle East! ... than by the Russians in Moscow) & last but NOT least... the former CIS countries mostly Muslim MULTIPLY AT a VERY fast rate... due to marriages before they are 21 years of age (& many times BEFORE they are 18 years old! ) Yes, I believe that they will have " NEW" subscribers to their Yandex! These sometimes ignorant CIS country people also regard the Russian RT tv as the truth in reporting.... they ACTUALLY told me that ! I HAD TO CORRECT THEM! & these people ONLY know Russian stuff...like Yandex.... I believe that this company will go up & down but basically it will rise slowly but steadily! If you like to "HOLD-ONTO " stuff then....
