Why Sky Solar Holdings Ltd (SKYS) Could Be A Buy

Shawn Clark

Sky Solar Holdings Ltd (NASDAQ:SKYS), a independent power and renewable electricity producers company based in Hong Kong, saw a significant share price rise of over 20% in the past couple of months on the NasdaqCM. As a small cap stock, hardly covered by any analysts, there is generally more of an opportunity for mispricing as there is less activity to push the stock closer to fair value. Is there still an opportunity here to buy? Today I will analyse the most recent data on SKYS’s outlook and valuation to see if the opportunity still exists.

Is SKYS still cheap?

Great news for investors – SKYS is still trading at a fairly cheap price. I’ve used the price-to-equity ratio in this instance because there’s not enough visibility to forecast its cash flows. The stock’s ratio of 8.7x is currently well-below the industry average of 41x, meaning that it is trading at a cheaper price relative to its peers. However, given that SKYS’s share is fairly volatile (i.e. its price movements are magnified relative to the rest of the market) this could mean the price can sink lower, giving us another chance to buy in the future. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for share price volatility.

What does the future of SKYS look like?

NasdaqCM:SKYS Future Profit Oct 31st 17

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 SKYS future expectations. Though in the case of SKYS, it is expected to deliver a highly negative earnings growth in the next few years, which doesn’t help build up its investment thesis. It appears that risk of future uncertainty is high, at least in the near term.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Although SKYS is currently undervalued, the adverse prospect of negative growth brings about some degree of risk. Consider whether you want to increase your portfolio exposure to SKYS, or whether diversifying into another stock may be a better move for your total risk and return.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on SKYS for a while, but hesitant on making the leap, I recommend you dig deeper into the stock. Given its current undervaluation, now is a great time to make a decision. But keep in mind the risks that come with negative growth prospects in the future.
