Simply Wall St

Daqo New Energy Corp. (NYSE:DQ), which is in the semiconductor business, and is based in China, led the NYSE gainers with a relatively large price hike in the past couple of weeks. With many analysts covering the stock, we may expect any price-sensitive announcements have already been factored into the stock’s share price. However, what if the stock is still a bargain? Today I will analyse the most recent data on Daqo New Energy’s outlook and valuation to see if the opportunity still exists.

What is Daqo New Energy worth?

Good news, investors! Daqo New Energy is still a bargain right now. My valuation model shows that the intrinsic value for the stock is $93.65, which is above what the market is valuing the company at the moment. This indicates a potential opportunity to buy low. However, given that Daqo New Energy’s share is fairly volatile (i.e. its price movements are magnified relative to the rest of the market) this could mean the price can sink lower, giving us another chance to buy in the future. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for share price volatility.

Can we expect growth from Daqo New Energy?

NYSE:DQ Past and Future Earnings, September 13th 2019

Investors looking for growth in their portfolio may want to consider the prospects of a company before buying its shares. Although value investors would argue that it’s the intrinsic value relative to the price that matter the most, a more compelling investment thesis would be high growth potential at a cheap price. Daqo New Energy’s earnings over the next few years are expected to double, indicating a very optimistic future ahead. This should lead to stronger cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Since DQ is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase your holdings in the stock. With an optimistic outlook on the horizon, it seems like this growth has not yet been fully factored into the share price. 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 DQ for a while, now might be the time to make a leap. Its prosperous future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy DQ. 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 investment decision.
