Why TTM Technologies Inc (NASDAQ:TTMI) Could Be A Buy

Mary Ramos

TTM Technologies Inc (NASDAQ:TTMI), a electronic company based in United States, saw significant share price volatility over the past couple of months on the NasdaqGS, rising to the highs of $19.47 and falling to the lows of $17.33. 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 TTM Technologies’s current trading price of $18.37 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 TTM Technologies’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 TTM Technologies?

Good news, investors! TTM Technologies is still a bargain right now. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $23.11, but it is currently trading at US$18.37 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. However, given that TTM Technologies’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.

Can we expect growth from TTM Technologies?

NasdaqGS:TTMI Future Profit September 7th 18

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. Though in the case of TTM Technologies, 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 TTMI is currently undervalued, the adverse prospect of negative growth brings about some degree of risk. I recommend you think about whether you want to increase your portfolio exposure to TTMI, 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 TTMI for a while, but hesitant on making the leap, I recommend you research further 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.
