Great company, great leadership, too expensive.

Growth over the past decade has been a cycle of boom and bust and boom again. The cyclicality has been driven by new product introductions. You can't count on that as an investor. Annual revenue growth has ranged from a 6% decline to the pandemic-soaked 39% in 2020. The average over that decade has been roughly 14%.

During that span, the P/S ratio has been as low as two and as high as eight. It currently sits at seven. For shareholders to be rewarded, not only will the business have to keep performing like it did during a once in a century event, but investors will also have to remain willing to pay nearly the highest premium they ever have.
