Zoom Communications (ZM) zooming higher. The video communication company is up 4% making new all-time highs following blow out sales. Revenue improved 169% to $328.2 million from $122 million a year ago marking one of the best quarters for any software firm in history. For the full year, Zoom now expects revenue of $1.78 billion to $1.8 billion, nearly double Zoom's previous annual forecast for a maximum of $915 million in yearly sales. The downside is Zoom is not making a lot of money and the valuation is a little crazy trading for 30 times sales.
