Is Daktronics still cheap?

According to my valuation model, the stock is currently overvalued by about 22%, trading at US$5.89 compared to my intrinsic value of $4.81. This means that the buying opportunity has probably disappeared for now. But, is there another opportunity to buy low in the future? Since Daktronics’s share price is quite volatile, this could mean it can sink lower (or rise even further) in the future, giving us another chance to invest. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for how much the stock moves relative to the rest of the market.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? It seems like the market has well and truly priced in DAKT’s positive outlook, with shares trading above its fair value. However, this brings up another question – is now the right time to sell? If you believe DAKT should trade below its current price, selling high and buying it back up again when its price falls towards its real value can be profitable. But before you make this decision, take a look at whether its fundamentals have changed.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping tabs on DAKT for some time, now may not be the best time to enter into the stock. The price has surpassed its true value, which means there’s no upside from mispricing. However, the positive outlook is encouraging for DAKT, which means it’s worth diving deeper into other factors in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
