SORL Auto Parts Inc (NASDAQ:SORL), which is in the auto components business, and is based in China, received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the NasdaqGM over the last few months, increasing to $4.68 at one point, and dropping to the lows of $2.69. This high level of volatility gives investors the opportunity to enter into the stock, and potentially buy at an artificially low price. A question to answer is whether SORL Auto Parts’s current trading price of $2.73 reflective of the actual value of the small-cap? Or is it currently undervalued, providing us with the opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at SORL Auto Parts’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.
What’s the opportunity in SORL Auto Parts?
Good news, investors! SORL Auto Parts is still a bargain right now. I’ve used the price-to-earnings ratio in this instance because there’s not enough visibility to forecast its cash flows. The stock’s ratio of 4.28x is currently well-below the industry average of 13.28x, meaning that it is trading at a cheaper price relative to its peers. Although, there may be another chance to buy again in the future. This is because SORL Auto Parts’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 SORL Auto Parts?
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. In the upcoming year, SORL Auto Parts’s earnings are expected to increase by 60%, indicating a highly optimistic future ahead. This should lead to more robust cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.
What this means for you:
Are you a shareholder? Since SORL is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to accumulate more of your holdings in the stock. With a positive outlook on the horizon, it seems like this growth has not yet been fully factored into the share price. However, there are also other factors such as capital structure to consider, which could explain the current undervaluation.
Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on SORL for a while, now might be the time to make a leap. Its prosperous future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy SORL. But before you make any investment decisions, consider other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to make a well-informed investment decision.
