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CAPS shouldn't highlight these old posts since they're often outdated (as is this one).
