Cavco Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:CVCO), which is in the consumer durables business, and is based in United States, saw a double-digit share price rise of over 10% in the past couple of months on the NasdaqGS. Less-covered, small caps sees more of an opportunity for mispricing due to the lack of information available to the public, which can be a good thing. So, could the stock still be trading at a low price relative to its actual value? Let’s take a look at Cavco Industries’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if the opportunity still exists.

Is Cavco Industries still cheap?Cavco Industries appears to be overvalued by 41.03% at the moment, based on my discounted cash flow valuation. The stock is currently priced at US$143 on the market compared to my intrinsic value of $101.59. This means that the buying opportunity has probably disappeared for now. But, is there another opportunity to buy low in the future? Given that Cavco Industries’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 Cavco Industries?Future outlook is an important aspect when you’re looking at buying a stock, especially if you are an investor looking for growth in your portfolio. 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 Cavco Industries, it is expected to deliver a relatively unexciting earnings growth of 3.4%, which doesn’t help build up its investment thesis. Growth doesn’t appear to be a main reason for a buy decision for the company, at least in the near term.
What this means for you:
Are you a shareholder? CVCO’s future growth appears to have been factored into the current share price, with shares trading above its fair value. At this current price, shareholders may be asking a different question – should I sell? If you believe CVCO 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 an eye on CVCO for a while, 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 means it’s worth diving deeper into other factors in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
