What’s the opportunity in Tetra Tech?
The stock seems fairly valued at the moment according to my valuation model. It’s trading around 8% above my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Tetra Tech today, you’d be paying a relatively reasonable price for it. And if you believe that the stock is really worth $48.94, there’s only an insignificant downside when the price falls to its real value. Furthermore, it seems like Tetra Tech’s share price is quite stable, which means there may be less chances to buy low in the future now that it’s fairly valued. This is because the stock is less volatile than the wider market given its low beta.
What does the future of Tetra Tech look like?
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 a double-digit 17.55% over the next couple of years, the outlook is positive for Tetra Tech. 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? TTEK’s optimistic future growth appears to have been factored into the current share price, with shares trading around its fair value. However, there are also other important factors which we haven’t considered today, such as the financial strength of the company. Have these factors changed since the last time you looked at the stock? Will you have enough confidence to invest in the company should the price drop below its fair value?
Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping tabs on TTEK, now may not be the most advantageous time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value. However, the positive outlook is encouraging for the company, which means it’s worth further examining other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
