Is There Now An Opportunity In Quanta Services Inc (PWR)?

Kevin Zeng

Quanta Services Inc (NYSE:PWR), a capital goods company based in United States, saw a decent share price growth in the teens level on the NYSE over the last few months. With many analysts covering the mid-cap stock, we may expect any price-sensitive announcements have already been factored into the stock’s share price. But what if there is still an opportunity to buy? Today I will analyse the most recent data on PWR’s outlook and valuation to see if the opportunity still exists. View our latest analysis for Quanta Services

Is PWR still cheap?

PWR appears to be overvalued by 55% at the moment, based on my discounted cash flow valuation. Not the best news for investors looking to buy! The intrinsic value of the stock is $16.37, but it is currently valued by the market at $36.3. In addition to this, it seems like PWR’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 PWR’s stock is less volatile than the wider market given its low beta.

Can we expect growth from PWR?

NYSE:PWR Future Profit Sep 17th 17

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. With profit expected to grow by 56.91% over the next couple of years, the future seems bright for PWR. 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? PWR’s optimistic future growth appears to have been factored into the current share price, with shares trading above its fair value. However, this brings up another question – is now the right time to sell? If you believe PWR 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 PWR for some time, 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 optimistic prospect is encouraging for PWR, which means it’s worth diving deeper into other factors in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
