An analyst at Bank of America thinks your favorite place for cat videos is worth big money.

Analyst Justin Post wrote a note this week saying that YouTube, the popular video streaming site bought by Google in 2006, is worth about $70 billion on its own. That’s a higher value than all but 66 of the companies listed on the S&P 500, according to Bloomberg.

The 2006 deal was for $1.65 billion.
