ZG is trading at the low end of historical valuations with a 8.4x UAFRS-based P/B (V/A’) though at the higher end of historical valuations with a 40.6x UAFRS-based P/B (V/E’). After the acquisition of Trulia, ZG has seen UAFRS-based ROA rise from 17% to 23%, which is projected to remain around 20% going forward. However, the market is expecting Adjusted ROA to fall to 16%, levels not seen since 2011, with Adjusted Asset Growth at the low end of historic growth rates.
