The following video is from Friday's Motley Fool Money roundtable discussion with host Chris Hill and analysts Ron Gross, James Early, and Joe Magyer. In this segment, the guys talk about Zillow (NAS: Z) , a company that is redefining the real estate business model, and their recent lackluster earnings. Could this be another example of a tech stock with a very exciting, but untested, business model leading to an overvaluation of a company that has a strong performance -- but just can't live up to the hype?

Another story from the tech world of hype, and a company that just may not live up to it, is the almighty Facebook. After the world's most-hyped IPO turned out to be a dunce, most investors probably don't even want to think about shares of Facebook. But there are things every investor needs to know about this company. We've outlined them in our newest premium research report. There's a lot more to Facebook than meets the eye, so read up on whether there is anything to "like" about it today, and we'll tell you whether we think Facebook deserves a place in your portfolio.
