Amazon (AMZN) is not cheap but with trailing twelve month earnings per share rising from $1.25 a year ago to $4.90 today it is at least growing into its valuation. PE has fallen from around 500 to 185.  Consensus forecasts expect $7.24 in EPS this year, and $12.44 next year. That is 59% of compounded earnings growth over the next two years and would put the P/E at 72.4. The most bullish forecast is for $17.43 or a PE of 52.
