MoneyLion Is Reasonably Priced:

Compared to the Technology sector's average of 26.5, MoneyLion has a trailing twelve month P/E ratio of 2.5 and, according to its EPS guidance of -0.27, an expected P/E ratio of -2.9. MoneyLion's PEG ratio is 0.04 based on its 65.33% annual average growth rate of historical and projected earnings per share. However, we believe that it is more prudent to calculate the PEG ratio using the broader market's 5-year expected EPS growth rate of 13.05%, because the growth rate implied by MoneyLion's past and expected EPS is probably not sustainable. This more prudent approach shows a PEG ratio of 0.19, which still suggests that company's shares are possibly undervalued.

Furthermore, MoneyLion is likely undervalued in terms of its equity because its P/B ratio is 0.9 compared to its sector average of 5.57.
