Have Investors Already Priced In Analog Devices Inc’s (ADI) Growth?

Thomas Auclair

Today we’re going to take a look at the well-established Analog Devices Inc (NASDAQ:ADI). The company’s stock saw a decent share price growth in the teens level on the NasdaqGS over the last few months. With many analysts covering the large-cap 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 ADI’s outlook and valuation to see if the opportunity still exists. Check out our latest analysis for Analog Devices

What’s the opportunity in ADI?

The stock is currently trading at $90.99 on the share market, which means it is overvalued by 31% compared to my intrinsic value of $69.65. This means that the buying opportunity has probably disappeared for now. If you like the stock, you may want to keep an eye out for a potential price decline in the future. Since ADI’s share price is quite volatile, this could mean it can sink lower (or rise even further) in the future, giving us another chance to invest. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for how much ADI moves relative to the rest of the market.

What does the future of ADI look like?

NasdaqGS:ADI Future Profit Nov 3rd 17

Investors looking for growth in their portfolio may want to consider the prospects of a company before buying its shares. 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 ADI future expectations. With profit expected to more than double over the next couple of years, the future seems bright for ADI. It looks like higher cash flows is on the cards for the stock, which should feed into a higher share valuation.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? ADI’s optimistic future growth appears to have been factored into the current share price, with shares trading above its fair value. At this current price, shareholders may be asking a different question – should I sell? If you believe ADI should trade below its current price, selling high and buying it back up again when its price falls towards its real value can be profitable. But before you make this decision, take a look at whether its fundamentals have changed.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on ADI for a while, now may not be the best time to enter into the stock. The price has surpassed its true value, which means there’s no upside from mispricing. However, the positive outlook is encouraging for ADI, which means it’s worth diving deeper into other factors in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
