Is Carvana’s Stock Overvalued Compared To CarMax?

E-commerce based used-car retailer, Carvana’s (NYSE: CVNA) P/S (price-to-sales) multiple of 2.7x is higher than the figure of 0.9x for CarMax (NYSE: KMX), a used-car industry leader. So, is Carvana stock too expensive compared to CarMax stock? We believe that Carvana stock is currently overvalued compared to CarMax stock, due to the notable mismatch in their current P/S multiples when compared with returns and risk profiles for the two companies over recent years.

Carvana’s revenue growth is much higher (114% average annual revenue growth over the 2017-2019 period vs about 8.9% for CarMax), which explains the higher P/S multiple. However, CarMax’s returns are better. Specifically, CarMax’s net income margin (net profits as a percent of revenue) stood at over

iPhone 11 vs. Galaxy S20: Apple and Samsung’s flagship phones compared

Apple and Samsung are the two biggest phone-makers in the world, and their current flagship phones are some of the best you can buy. (Though the new Motorola Edge Plus is a worthy competitor). As the base models for their latest lines, Apple’s iPhone 11 and Samsung’s Galaxy S20 are also the least expensive models, starting at $699, £729 and AU$1,199 (64GB) and $999, £899 and AU$1,499, respectively. (The prices listed for the Galaxy S20 are for the 128GB model with 5G — though there are cheaper 4G Galaxy S20 variants sold in the UK and Australia.) We’ll see how the rumored iPhone 12 stacks up when it is finally released, potentially very soon. Apple also released the more affordable iPhone SE, and Samsung recently added the Galaxy S20 FE to its lineup, another alternative for the budget-conscious.

Best smart speakers of 2020: Google Nest Mini, Amazon Echo Dot, and Apple HomePod compared

In 2020, Amazon, Google and Apple are all making good smart speakers. The competition between these tech giants only pushes them to keep getting better. Amazon popularized smart speakers with the original Echo and the Alexa voice assistant, but today you have several options, each with their own pros and cons. 

So how do you pick the best smart speaker for your needs? Well, the key differences largely come down to hardware size, price and audio quality. If you don’t need much oomph from your music and you’re good with a little lower audio quality, you can save money and get the same smarts in a smaller smart speaker.

Our favorites, the Amazon Echo Dot and the Google Nest Mini, are both awesome smart devices. Pretty much all of

Night mode, zoom, video compared

The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra’s camera is a huge part of the phone — literally and figuratively. With a 5x optical zoom , 108-megapixel sensor and 8K recording, it’s no surprise that Samsung is looking to win over photographers and videographers alike. But how does it compare to the iPhone 11 Pro Max? Though it came out last year, the iPhone is still one of the best phones for photos and video recording.

To see which of the two had the best camera , I tested both phones when it came to zooming, low-light pictures, video and more. The phones are working with similar hardware — both have three rear cameras with an ultra-wide, regular wide and telephoto lens.
