[Updated 04/01/2021] Does Facebook’s stock have a 25% upside potential?
At the current price of around $ 288 per share, we believe Facebook actions (NASDAQ: FB) has growth potential of around 25% in the near term. FB stock has risen 120% since late 2018 compared to the S & P500 which rose 59% over the same period. Both revenues and profits increased in 2020 as the Covid-19 pandemic pushed individuals and organizations towards e-commerce and a shift in demand towards discretionary service products. These changes have given FB’s advertising business a boost in the second half of 2020.
Facebook initially protested Apple’s announced change to its privacy policies, which is expected to roll out in early spring. The new policy will force device users to choose to share information with developers. However, last week the CEO suggested it could strengthen the company in the long run by improving its in-app retail options. The Covid-19 pandemic and upcoming changes to iOS have prompted Facebook to step up its pace of deploying e-commerce functionality across its various platforms. However, the impact of Apple’s privacy changes on Facebook’s stock and the rest of the digital advertising industry remains to be seen. Over the past few years, the company has seen its profits rise as its P / E multiple has fluctuated.
Facebook’s revenue increased from $ 55.8 billion in 2018 to $ 86 billion in 2020. Net profit margin increased from 39.6% in 2018 to 33.9% in 2020. Per share, profit fell from $ 7.65 to $ 10.22 while the company recorded a decline of 1.3%. in outstanding shares.
During the same period, the P / E multiple fell from 17.1x to around 26.7x. The P / E improved slightly in 2021 and is currently around 28.2x.

Following the Fed’s stimulus – which set a floor on fear – the market was willing to “look through” the current period of weakness and take a longer view. With investors focusing their attention on the 2021 results, valuations become important in finding value. Although market sentiment may be fickle, and evidence of a slight uptick in new cases could scare investors again. In 2021, we forecast FB’s revenue to reach $ 105.4 billion, up 22.6% year-on-year. Additionally, its net profit is expected to reach $ 32.6 billion, increasing its EPS to $ 11.53, which, together with the P / E multiple of 31.3x, will lead to a Facebook valuation of around $ 360 per. share, up 25% from the current market price. .
