Although the shares closed at $313.09, that is still a 13% gain year to date, outperforming the S&P 5000’s gain of 8.5% since the start of the year. Despite the recent strong performance, the stock is still trading at an attractive valuation. The company gained momentum towards the end of 2020 despite the revenue growth slowdown as advertisers reduced, recalibrated, and paused ad campaigns during lockdowns. In Q4, revenue was 33% YoY, thanks to the acceleration of online commerce.
