Simply Wall St

Enphase Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ:ENPH), which is in the electrical business, and is based in United States, saw a significant share price rise of over 20% in the past couple of months on the NASDAQGM. With many analysts covering the 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? Today I will analyse the most recent data on Enphase Energy’s outlook and valuation to see if the opportunity still exists.

What's the opportunity in Enphase Energy?

According to my valuation model, Enphase Energy seems to be fairly priced at around 3.7% below my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Enphase Energy today, you’d be paying a reasonable price for it. And if you believe that the stock is really worth $9.96, then there’s not much of an upside to gain from mispricing. Although, there may be an opportunity to buy in the future. This is because Enphase Energy’s beta (a measure of share price volatility) is high, meaning its price movements will be exaggerated relative to the rest of the market. If the market is bearish, the company’s shares will likely fall by more than the rest of the market, providing a prime buying opportunity.

Can we expect growth from Enphase Energy?

NasdaqGM:ENPH Past and Future Earnings, April 16th 2019

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 revenues expected to grow by 80% over the next couple of years, the future seems bright for Enphase Energy. If the level of expenses is able to be maintained, 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? ENPH’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 track record of its management team. 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 ENPH, now may not be the most optimal 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.
