The inventory has cooled of and completed Wednesday’s session under $93.
“I was very worried about valuation here from the get-go, which in retrospect was a big mistake,” Cramer mentioned. “Still, Zoom sells for 33-times next year’s sales, not earnings. I can’t get behind anything that expensive. I’m afraid you’ll get hurt.”
