Is Kornit Digital still cheap?

Kornit Digital appears to be overvalued according to my relative valuation model. I’ve used the price-to-earnings ratio in this instance because there’s not enough visibility to forecast its cash flows. The stock’s ratio of 64.66x is currently well-above the industry average of 20.52x, meaning that it is trading at a more expensive price relative to its peers. In addition to this, it seems like Kornit Digital’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.

What kind of growth will Kornit Digital generate?

NasdaqGS:KRNT Past and Future Earnings, February 26th 2019

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 the company’s future expectations. With profit expected to grow by 86% over the next couple of years, the future seems bright for Kornit Digital. It looks like higher cash flow is on the cards for the stock, which should feed into a higher share valuation.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? It seems like the market has well and truly priced in KRNT’s positive outlook, with shares trading above its fair value. However, this brings up another question – is now the right time to sell? If you believe KRNT 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 tabs on KRNT for some time, now may not be the best time to enter into the stock. The price has surpassed its industry peers, which means it is likely that there is no more upside from mispricing. However, the optimistic prospect is encouraging for KRNT, which means it’s worth diving deeper into other factors in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
