Why Daqo New Energy Corp. (NYSE:DQ) Is An Attractive Investment To Consider

Simply Wall St

As an investor, I look for investments which do not compromise one fundamental factor for another. By this I mean, I look at stocks holistically, from their financial health to their future outlook. In the case of Daqo New Energy Corp. (NYSE:DQ), it is a company with a excellent growth outlook, which has not yet been factored into the price. In the following section, I expand a bit more on these key aspects. For those interested in digging a bit deeper into my commentary, take a look at the report on Daqo New Energy here.

High growth potential and good value

DQ is an attractive stock for growth-seeking investors, with an expected earnings growth of 68% in the upcoming year. This growth in the bottom-line is bolstered by an equally impressive top-line expansion over the same period, which is a sustainable driver of high-quality earnings, as opposed to pure cost-cutting activities. DQ is currently trading below its true value, which means the market is undervaluing the company's expected cash flow going forward. According to my intrinsic value of the stock, which is driven by analyst consensus forecast of DQ's earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Compared to the rest of the semiconductor industry, DQ is also trading below its peers of similar sizes in terms of their assets. This further reaffirms that DQ is potentially undervalued.
