The digital economy is here to stay, and online advertising is not a luxury but rather a necessity. Though many aren’t too big of fans of Facebook, the company, its stock continues to be severely underpriced, as its Shops and Dating features remain under-monetized, while potential at other properties such as Messenger and WhatsApp remain in the early innings, in our view. Our valuation of Facebook doesn’t include the tremendous promise that it holds in other areas of nascent growth and largely only considers Facebook/Instagram, meaning there is further upside potential beyond our fair value estimate range. Alphabet is benefiting from a lot of similar trends.
