While I share your valuation concerns, I have some minor quibbles with your math.

First, check your multiples. I believe March should be 13x and 2020 final should be 50x.

But more importantly, you are using static sales numbers. In your example you said sales growth is 50%.

So end of 2020 sales should be 7.50, and the multiple is 33.3x (and not 50x).

And the current sales would be 7.50 x 1.2247 = 9.375 (1.2247^2 = 1.5), so the multiple would be 21.2x (and not 39x). That is almost back to Jan 2020 multiples.
