What is L3Harris Technologies worth?

According to my valuation model, L3Harris Technologies seems to be fairly priced at around 14% below my intrinsic value, which means if you buy L3Harris Technologies today, you’d be paying a reasonable price for it. And if you believe the company’s true value is $245.87, then there’s not much of an upside to gain from mispricing. What's more, L3Harris Technologies’s share price may be more stable over time (relative to the market), as indicated by its low beta.

What does the future of L3Harris Technologies look like?

NYSE:LHX Past and Future Earnings, September 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 more than double over the next couple of years, the future seems bright for L3Harris Technologies. 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? LHX’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 conviction to buy should the price fluctuates below the true value?

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on LHX, now may not be the most advantageous time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value. However, the optimistic prospect 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.
