Fulgent Genetics: Poised To Survive Its Post-Covid Hangover

Today, we take a deeper look at Fulgent Genetics, which has benefitted greatly from an explosion of Covid-19 testing revenue. The stock has sold off as fears around the coronavirus have ebbed. However, the company has a huge cash hoard to build up the other parts of its product portfolio. An investment analysis follows in the paragraphs below. "I used to advertise my loyalty and I don't believe there is a single person I loved that I didn't eventually betray." - Albert Camus, The Fall Today, we are putting Fulgent Genetics (FLGT) in the spotlight. The company has been a huge beneficiary of the pandemic. Covid-19 testing revenues powered a thirteen-fold increase in overall sales in the company's 4Q2020 earnings report as a good example of the magnitude of the benefit. Subsequently, the stock rocketed up from $10 a share in March 2020 to $160 in January 2021. Seeking Alpha However, as pandemic fears have ebbed considerably lately, the stock has sold off some 45% since late last year and is down nearly two-thirds from its all-time highs. Time to accumulate some shares in this diagnostic testing concern? An analysis follows below. Company Overview: Fulgent Genetics provides numerous tests and testing services and is based just outside of Los Angeles. Its product portfolio includes Covid-19, molecular diagnostic, and genetic testing. As noted above, the majority of revenues are coming from Covid-19 testing, its specialized oncology and other tests are what the company calls its 'core' revenue-generating part of the company. May Company Presentation The stock sells for around $58.00 a share and sports an approximate market capitalization of $1.75 billion. May Company Presentation First Quarter Results: On May 3rd, Fulgent posted first quarter numbers. The company had non-GAAP earnings of $5.12 a share on revenues of $320 million. Both top and bottom line results easily beat expectations. GAAP profits per share were $4.83. Revenue was down from nearly $360 million in the same period a year ago, solely as a result of a decrease from Covid testing. 'Core' revenue was up 59% to $25.1 million. Management raised its full-year guidance to $660 million worth of sales but took down full year non-GAAP income a buck to $6.00 a share. May Company Presentation Shortly after the quarter closed, Fulgent acquired Inform Diagnostics, a national independent pathology laboratory based in Irving, Texas, for $170 million. May Company Presentation Fulgent Genetics also purchased CSI Laboratories in 2021. May Company Presentation This triggered leadership to move up their estimate of 'core' revenue for FY2022 to approximately $175 million from $120 million previously. At its earnings call in early May, the leadership moved up its estimate for core revenue further to $180 million. May Company Presentation Analyst Commentary & Balance Sheet: Despite a decent-sized market cap, Fulgent Genetics gets short shrift from Wall Street. On January 25th, maintained its Buy rating on FLGT but lowered its price target from $141 to $125 a share. In late May, Piper Sandler reissued its Buy rating after meeting with management. Piper's analyst stated that he was: Impressed with the company's core growth, potential in its COVID business, and "optionality" with its $1.1B in cash. The analyst believes Fulgent is setting itself up to add growth via acquisitions, particularly as other labs struggle with cash management."
