    Warren Buffett wouldn't sell Zillow stock purely because he would NEVER buy it in the first place. Zillow was overpriced at $55 and is massively overpriced at $85 with a PE ratio as nonsense as its Zestimates.

    There is strange parallel drawn here between BOFI and Z. BOFI looks a viable business: a bank with a single central office and operation on the internet, which allows it to operate more efficiently than most competitors.

    Zillow... well, it is a highly speculative internet stock, a dot-com.

    There is no comparison at all between the two, except that both shares have performed well recently as they have managed to draw market attention. BOFI is low-priced growth stock with below fair valuation, while the financials of Z are unpeakable.
