Encore Wire: Exciting Profit From Boring Business
YoY revenue growth, EBITDA growth, and EBIT growth for WIRE are 61.81%, 307.21%, and 380.69%, respectively. EBIT margin (18.22%), EBITDA margin (19.33%), and net income margin (14.11%) are far above sector medians. Vertical integration presents several benefits including cost reduction, operational flexibility, and high efficiency. Despite profitability and growth potential, the stock price is at a discount (FWD P/E ratio of 5.86) compared to the sector median (21.14) and WIRE’s 5-year average (17.22). I believe the market is undervaluing its revenue growth potential and profitability, and the stock price will rise sharply in the near future.

Encore Wire Setting New Records On The Back Of Exceptional Copper Spreads
Encore Wire had a blowout second quarter, with strong volume (up 33% yoy) and incredibly strong pricing (up 130%) driving almost 200% revenue growth and fantastic copper spreads. Encore Wire's historical revenue growth has never been particularly impressive, partly due to the impact of copper prices versus demand volume growth, but management has managed to consistently grow BVPS. It's a struggle to make discounted cash flow and forward EBITDA methodologies work given this spike, but the shares could still have some upside on the basis of P/BV.
