IntriCon Corporation (NASDAQ:IIN) is considered a high-growth stock, but its last closing price of $18.05 left some investors wondering if this high future earnings potential can be rationalized by its current price tag. Let’s look into this by assessing IIN’s expected growth over the next few years.
What are the future expectations?
IntriCon’s extremely high growth potential in the near future is attracting investors. Expectations from 3 analysts are extremely bullish with earnings per share estimated to surge from current levels of $0.690 to $1.337 over the next three years. This results in an annual growth rate of 46%, on average, which signals a market-beating outlook in the upcoming years.
Is IIN’s share price justifiable by its earnings growth?
IntriCon is available at price-to-earnings ratio of 26.14x, showing us it is undervalued based on its latest annual earnings update compared to the Medical Equipment average of 42.57x , and overvalued compared to the US market average ratio of 18.03x .
We already know that IIN appears to be undervalued based on its PE ratio, compared to the industry average. However, since IntriCon is a high-growth stock, we must also account for its earnings growth by using calculation called the PEG ratio. A PE ratio of 26.14x and expected year-on-year earnings growth of 46% give IntriCon a very low PEG ratio of 0.57x. This tells us that when we include its growth in our analysis IntriCon’s stock can be considered relatively cheap , based on its fundamentals.
What this means for you:
IIN’s current undervaluation could signal a potential buying opportunity to increase your exposure to the stock, or it you’re a potential investor, now may be the right time to buy. However, basing your investment decision off one metric alone is certainly not sufficient. There are many things I have not taken into account in this article and the PEG ratio is very one-dimensional.
