RCM Technologies: A Small-Cap, High Potential Cyclical Stock
RCM Technologies is a small-cap cyclical stock, which tends to outperform the market as the economy exits a recession, making this environment a breeding ground for high-risk high-reward scenarios. The company's healthcare segment is poised perfectly to leverage the high post-pandemic demand for healthcare services, and its engineering segment can greatly benefit from the increased government spending. The stock is currently undervalued by relative valuation metrics and is expected to show a strong topline growth, leading to a potential upside, making me bullish on it. Investment Thesis RCM Technologies Inc. (RCMT) has outperformed the market with triple digits in the previous year and YTD, experiencing an 85% share price gain during Q2 2022. The stock has been on a downward trend since June start, losing about 40% value in these 2 months. RCMT data by YCharts As a cyclical stock, RCM rides with the ups and downs of the economy, and a down-trending economy will likely reflect in the company's performance, as evident from the recent trend dictated by recessionary pressures. There appears to be ample opportunity for the company to grow its operations, especially in its healthcare segment in the wake of the pandemic and the engineering segment with the growing alternative and renewable energy markets. Additionally, counter to intuition, small caps tend to outperform the broader market during the second half of a recession, making this a suitable environment for investment in a small-cap company. Risk-averse investors would benefit from staying away from cyclical stocks in the prevailing market conditions and investing in inflation hedges. In contrast, investors who can stomach the volatility of a down-trending economy on a cyclical stock are likely to benefit from long-term capital appreciation through investing in RCMT. The Company RCM Technologies is a single-source business and technology solutions provider with a vertical focus on an integrated suite of services through a global delivery platform. The company provides project management and consulting services through three segments; Engineering, Specialty Health Care, and Life Sciences and Information Technology (LS&IT). The Specialty Health Care segment accounts for about 64% of the company's revenue, followed by the Engineering segment's 24% and LS&IT's 12%. Each segment reported YoY revenue growth of 147%, 38%, and 84%, respectively. The Specialty Healthcare Segment This segment engages in long and short-term staffing and placement services, serving hospitals, schools, long-term care facilities, etc., and performing staff augmentation services. It accounts for about two-thirds of the company's total revenue and more than doubled in the MRQ compared to Q1 2021. The segment's revenue originates through hourly billing, based on fixed contractual rates. This would incline one to think that RCMT can safely navigate the recession if it has enough long-term contracts. However, given that most of the company's contracts have a clause allowing its clients to terminate the contracts based on 60 or 90 days' notice, recessionary pressures on the economy may result in terminated contracts, straining the segment's revenue. However, one can expect more growth in this segment in the upcoming quarters, considering the company’s penetration in the schooling market. The healthcare segment has generated 79% of its revenue from school clients, exhibiting 66% YoY growth. There are almost 131 thousand schools in the United States, including 26,727 high schools and 87,498 elementary schools. The US Department of Education budget for the fiscal year 2022 includes $1 billion for a new School-Based Health Professionals grant program to support doubling the number of health professionals in schools, indicating a strong affinity to the increasing demand for the company’s services. The American Jobs Plan includes $10 billion in mandatory funding in 2022 and $50 billion over five years for grants to improve existing school facilities and construct new public elementary and secondary schools to help students of color and students from low-income families for closing the opportunity gap. One of the major factors this aims to address is the risk of poor healthcare facilities. Full-Service Community Schools (FSCS) program acts in partnership with community-based organizations, non-profit organizations, or other public and private entities to provide students with academic, social, and health services. The Education Department has recently announced its largest-ever $68 million grant for FY 2022, with President Biden requesting a phenomenal increase in the budget to $468 million for FY 2023. The significant surge in the American Job Plan grant and FSCS funding compared to the previous years leads to many new business opportunities in the healthcare industry, with RCMT as a primary beneficiary. The Engineering Segment RCMT’s services include analysis, design, drafting, and field services of mechanical, chemical, environmental, aeronautical, architectural, civil/structural, electrical, and electronic engineering, with a strong emphasis on acquiring government contracts. These services are also offered to the power generation industry, including nuclear energy, fossil fuel, and a customized mix of alternative and renewable power generation. To achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, President Biden’s Budget for the Fiscal Year 2022 specifies the Department of Energy Budget, specifically focusing on creating the essential RDD of critical energy technologies to address the climate catastrophe. The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy has requested $4.7 billion, including $300 million in grants to work with state and local governments to advance clean energy initiatives and $1 billion in new funding to deploy clean energy technologies that can provide affordable, pollution-free energy to more people. Additionally, the government aims to spend $2 trillion on infrastructure improvements over the decade, including: $115 billion to repair and rebuild bridges, highways, and roads; $100 billion to expand high-speed broadband across the entire country; $100 billion to upgrade and build new schools; and $100 billion to expand and improve power lines and spur a shift to clean energy. This will have a beneficial trickle-down effect on the economy, especially benefitting the firms like RCMT, directly involved in these infrastructure modifications. Apart from the well-established opportunities in the conventional energy sectors, this creates a significant opportunity for RCMT to expand its engineering operations in the renewable power sector, resulting in the company developing sustainable revenue streams. Low Cap Cyclical Stock and Recession Following a conventional chain of thought, one might be inclined to think that low-cap stocks would underperform large-cap stocks during recessions. Still, low-caps are precedented to outperform large-caps during recessions, high inflation, and rising interest rates. Historically, the first half of a recession is a prime moment to invest in low-cap stocks as their underperformance during this time, in line with the falling GDP, makes them much cheaper and attractively valued. Anchor Capital Advisors Small cap companies are more exposed to default and cyclical risks because of relatively higher leverage and shorter maturities, leading to investors prioritizing investing in highly liquid and safer stocks, i-e large caps. As a potentially stronger economy starts appearing on the horizon, investors tend to take on greater risk for a higher return, leading to increased investments in small-cap stocks. With a GDP rebound, small caps start outperforming large-cap stocks. According to data compiled by Anchor Capital Advisors, small caps have lagged for the first 5 to 6 months of the last 10 recessions. Small caps tend to outperform in the second half of a recession, with significant outperformance one year after the recession ends. Anchor Capital Advisors Valuation RCMT has a good P/E ratio compared to its peers, with a TTM multiple of 12x, especially considering the small market cap of $178.4 million. Some companies in other professional research and consultation industries include the Mistras Group (MG), a $186.6 million company with a P/E of 48.7x, and Where Food Comes From, Inc. (WFCF), a $68.7 million company with a P.E of 30.87x.
