Should You Buy China Yuchai International Limited (NYSE:CYD) Now?

Gavin Beck

China Yuchai International Limited (NYSE:CYD), a machinery company based in Singapore, saw a decent share price growth in the teens level on the NYSE over the last few months. Less-covered, small caps sees more of an opportunity for mispricing due to the lack of information available to the public, which can be a good thing. So, could the stock still be trading at a low price relative to its actual value? Today I will analyse the most recent data on China Yuchai International’s outlook and valuation to see if the opportunity still exists. View our latest analysis for China Yuchai International

What’s the opportunity in China Yuchai International?

Great news for investors – China Yuchai International is still trading at a fairly cheap price. My valuation model shows that the intrinsic value for the stock is $50.69, but it is currently trading at $24.63 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. China Yuchai International’s share price also seems relatively stable compared to the rest of the market, as indicated by its low beta. If you believe the share price should eventually reach its true value, a low beta could suggest it is unlikely to rapidly do so anytime soon, and once it’s there, it may be hard to fall back down into an attractive buying range.

What does the future of China Yuchai International look like?

NYSE:CYD Future Profit Jan 11th 18

Future outlook is an important aspect when you’re looking at buying a stock, especially if you are an investor looking for growth in your portfolio. Buying a great company with a robust outlook at a cheap price is always a good investment, so let’s also take a look at the company’s future expectations. Though in the case of China Yuchai International, it is expected to deliver a relatively unexciting earnings growth of 5.16%, which doesn’t help build up its investment thesis. Growth doesn’t appear to be a main reason for a buy decision for the company, at least in the near term.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Even though growth is relatively muted, since China Yuchai International is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase your holdings in the stock. However, there are also other factors such as capital structure to consider, which could explain the current undervaluation.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on China Yuchai International for a while, now might be the time to make a leap. Its future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy China Yuchai International. But before you make any investment decisions, consider other factors such as the track record of its management team, in order to make a well-informed buy.
