• Chart: Zoom Consolidates Pandemic Gains | Statista.
Zoom’s stock was definitely overpriced at its peak, but the momentum has swung so far the other way that the stock is now arguably a bargain. The stock price has now fallen to pre-COVID valuation levels, despite the business’s continued growth.
Its price-to-earnings ratio of 34 is less than that of a consumer goods company like Nike , despite growing EPS at a triple-digit percentage rate. It’s becoming harder to ignore Zoom based on the current valuation and substantial numbers it’s put up. If there is a worry for investors, it’s probably competition with Microsoft. Microsoft is much larger than Zoom, making it a formidable competitor with deep pockets.
Zoom, of course, competes with Microsoft Teams , which is a crucial cog in Microsoft’s grip on the enterprise market. Investors will want to monitor Zoom’s revenue growth and management’s comments on customer account growth to ensure that Zoom competes well.
I think that there’s room for more than one winner in such a large market, but if Zoom starts losing so much business that its growth begins declining, investors might reconsider their stance on the stock.

It’s improved the online experience, but it’s got a long way to go.
Hill: Our email address is MarketFoolery Fool. Question from Sean Bryan in Harrisville, Utah, who writes, “I think there may come a time when people will look back and wonder how we justified eating animal meat, at least in the amounts that we do now?
If the War on Cash is followed by a “War on Meat,” what are the first three stocks you would put in that basket?
It’s an interesting thought exercise, the obvious first stock is probably Beyond Meat , and if Impossible Foods goes public, they’re in there as well. Barker: Yeah, I guess it would depend, you know, if the war is being waged against the meat processors, right.
You want to stay pretty far away from Smithfield, for instance, which is now owned by China. But I think, obviously the Beyond Meats of the world are where you would, kind of, start with that. Is poultry being taken out too in this example? By the way, I’m totally willing to entertain the notion that meat consumption is going to suffer as people become, one, they’ve got more opportunities to get a meat-like taste from the Beyond Meats, but, you know, an increased exposure to the story of factory farms and things like that, I could certainly see society turning its back and looking back on our generation and how much meat we eat and how we produce it as being something that is fairly horrifying to the future generations.
Hill: Well, to answer your question, Sean writes “eating animal meat,” chickens are animals, so, yeah, I guess [laughs] poultry is part of that as well. Barker: Yeah. Whereas poultry often, and has picked up from peoples moving away for purely health reasons, away from red meat, boy!
Barker: Yeah, I do think these are trends that need to be considered. And I think Tyson Foods is one of those things that I wouldn’t put all of my money into or Hormel or any of those. Hill: I also think it’s a trend that needs to be considered, I don’t think, for investors, this is as lucrative a trend, both, in the near-term or even in the long-term, as the War on Cash.
And likely to be a much bloodier war too. I mean, beef and the production of it are about as central to the iconography of the American experience as you can get. If you’re like me, the fact that you have never driven a herd of cattle to the slaughterhouse, it’s probably something that you consider a failure at a certain level, as an American man.
Don’t you feel at some level, like, you’re supposed to have done that by now? It may not be a level you could even put words into; I see you struggling, but you know what I’m talking about. Hill: I think you’re talking about the movie City Slickers , which is the only passing thought I ever had of like, I wonder what that would be like. And then by the end of the movie, I thought, well, that was a fun movie, but, no, I’m not interested in doing that.
Barker: No, no, no, not as a vacation, as a, you know, you’ve got to do this or the ranch is going to have to be sold, like this level of being tied to the land and the animals and the production of your own food and all that, in a way that — look, you’re a big movie fan, you’ve watched your fair share of westerns, I mean, I’m not talking City Slickers level.
Hill: Yeah, my fair share of westerns is probably smaller than other people’s fair share of westerns. Barker: But you know, that this is laced into the American psyche. And if you’re going to take beef away, boy! Hill: Well! And to go back to the War on Cash, how much resistance is cash putting up? Is the U. Treasury [laughs] really Treasury Department? I’m going to say, no. Whereas to your point, yeah, the beef industry, the poultry industry, yeah, they’re going to put up a fight.
Hill: Great commercial. And the fact that you have them voiced by people like Sam Elliott and Robert Mitchum, I mean, two of the all-time great voices. So, yeah, those are — you know, again, [laughs] the U. Treasury Department is not running second commercials on television or second pre-roll ads on YouTube to be, like, “Cash. It’s What’s In Your Wallet” like, no, they’re not doing that. Barker: Right. And even if you saw that, even if they produced a great commercial, you probably wouldn’t get misty-eyed for — oh, God!
Those were the days. Just wouldn’t happen. Whereas you watch that commercial and you’re like, I’ll tell you what I’m having for dinner, beef.
Hill: [laughs] Because it’s what’s for dinner. It’s December 1st, it is the beginning. If you had just started listening to MarketFoolery in the past six months or so, you’re not aware of what we’ve been doing every year since , which is, Producer Dan Boyd and I are on a mission to improve the menu of holiday music here in America as stations flip to all-holiday formats and play the same 50 songs.
Starting in , me and Dan Boyd, and it’s mostly Dan because he’s got the music expertise and depth of knowledge for all kinds of great holiday music that never makes it to the radio airwaves. So, that’s what you’re going to hear this month. In lieu of our normal closing music, you’re going to hear a different holiday song every day. I’ll probably be watching, I will not be live tweeting, because I feel like I’ve done that enough and there’s no need to go down that road.
But you had mentioned to me that you had an idea for a Christmas movie that you wanted to pitch me. Barker: First of all, on the live tweeting, because you did it a few times, couldn’t you just go back and get those tweets and sync to the airing of the show for those that didn’t get to experience the live tweet with you back in the day? It was only, like, two years ago was your last one, or three, I think two. Hill: Yeah, I don’t know.
