CoStar (CSGP):

We wrote up CSGP in 2017. We think there was limited interest in it. Sticker shock on EV/EBITDA puts people off. This is a big mistake.

  • Sustainable organic growth of ~15%

  • Incremental margins of ~90%

Potential Upside:     $1072 (+60%) over two years

Sensible Downside: $564 (-15%)
