Current stream of thought: revenues vs. market cap

The financials here make absolutely no sense to me, and this is only an example of the current state of (US) economy?

Zoom market cap is currently close to $107 billion, and it announced on July 18. 2021 that it’s acquiring Five9 for $14.7 billion in stock.

Meanwhile, Zoom reported net income of $7.6 million on revenue of $331 million for the year ended January 2020.


For sure their success is fascinating, and no small feat, but how is it ever expected that it measures in such a sky high evaluation?

Is the bubble real, or just late capitalism manifestation?

Or are they embodiment of the same religion, capital worshipping on the altar of ever transforming bubble.
