Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (NASDAQ:MXIM) 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? Let’s examine Maxim Integrated Products’s valuation and outlook in more detail to determine if there’s still a bargain opportunity.

What is Maxim Integrated Products worth?

The stock is currently trading at US$54.96 on the share market, which means it is overvalued by 42.43% compared to my intrinsic value of $38.59. Not the best news for investors looking to buy! If you like the stock, you may want to keep an eye out for a potential price decline in the future. Since Maxim Integrated Products’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 the stock moves relative to the rest of the market.

What kind of growth will Maxim Integrated Products generate?

NasdaqGS:MXIM Past and Future Earnings, April 3rd 2019

Future outlook is an important aspect when you’re looking at buying a stock, especially if you are an investor looking for growth in your portfolio. 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. However, with a relatively muted profit growth of 0.03% expected over the next couple of years, growth doesn’t seem like a key driver for a buy decision for Maxim Integrated Products, at least in the short term.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? MXIM’s 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 MXIM 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 MXIM 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 means it’s worth diving deeper into other factors in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
