as of February 23, 2023

When a company trades at 19x sales, 35x earnings it’s usually not going to be a good investment, regardless of how fast it’s growing… and MSCI is growing fast AF. By 2027, earnings per share is expected to nearly double to $21 per share from $12. It’s hard to bet against this one, but where it’s priced should give investors pause. Based on how the market is valuing this one, Mike Bloomberg should be the richest guy on the planet. The company has crushed it for over a decade, and will continue to do so. That doesn’t mean it’s worth $42 billion with just $870 million in net income on $2.2 billion in revenue.
