Great business and huge cash flow generator. However ...

CoStar has traded for between 40 and 70 times that FCF over the past eight years. Today, the multiple is 84. Even using management's estimate for 2021 revenue and the historical ratio of FCF to sales puts the metric at 66 looking a year out.

To grow into that valuation, CoStar will need to keep increasing sales. One obvious path was nixed last year when the Federal Trade Commission sued to block its acquisition of the owner of Rent.com and Apartment Guide. Given management's guidance and the current market cap, it won't be until sometime in 2023 that stock reaches the midpoint of its historical price-to-FCF range. That's a long time to wait for what would seem like fair value, even for a wonderful business.
