Devin Koller

Marvell Technology Group Ltd (NASDAQ:MRVL) received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the NasdaqGS over the last few months, increasing to $24.37 at one point, and dropping to the lows of $20.06. This high level of volatility gives investors the opportunity to enter into the stock, and potentially buy at an artificially low price. A question to answer is whether Marvell Technology Group’s current trading price of $20.32 reflective of the actual value of the large-cap? Or is it currently undervalued, providing us with the opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at Marvell Technology Group’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.

Is Marvell Technology Group still cheap?

Marvell Technology Group appears to be overvalued by 30% at the moment, based on my discounted cash flow valuation. The stock is currently priced at US$20.32 on the market compared to my intrinsic value of $15.67. This means that the buying opportunity has probably disappeared for now. In addition to this, it seems like Marvell Technology Group’s share price is quite stable, which could mean two things: firstly, it may take the share price a while to fall back down to an attractive buying range, and secondly, there may be less chances to buy low in the future once it reaches that value. This is because the stock is less volatile than the wider market given its low beta.
