Sharecare stock's forecast

No analysts cover Sharecare stock, but given that it's a leading digital health company, analysts will likely start covering it soon.

FCAC assigned Sharecare a pro forma EV (enterprise value) of $3.75 billion. However, based on FCAC stock's current price of $9, the market cap is close to $3.7 billion and the EV is about $3.4 billion. Based on this EV and Sharecare’s projected total revenue, its valuation multiples for 2021 and 2022 are 8.6x and 6.6x, respectively. The company’s 2023 EV-to-sales multiple of 5.4x looks much more attractive.

Considering that peers Amwell and Teladoc Health are trading at next-12-months EV-to-sales multiples of 7.4x and 12.2x, respectively, Sharecare stock looks undervalued.
