Tower Semiconductor Ltd. (NASDAQ:TSEM), is not the largest company out there, but it saw a double-digit share price rise of over 10% in the past couple of months on the NASDAQGS. As a mid-cap stock with high coverage by analysts, you could assume any recent changes in the company’s outlook is already priced into the stock. However, what if the stock is still a bargain? Let’s examine Tower Semiconductor’s valuation and outlook in more detail to determine if there’s still a bargain opportunity.

What is Tower Semiconductor worth?

Great news for investors – Tower Semiconductor is still trading at a fairly cheap price. My valuation model shows that the intrinsic value for the stock is $46.96, but it is currently trading at US$29.50 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. What’s more interesting is that, Tower Semiconductor’s share price is quite volatile, which gives us more chances to buy since the share price could sink lower (or rise higher) in the future. 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 kind of growth will Tower Semiconductor generate?

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. Although value investors would argue that it’s the intrinsic value relative to the price that matter the most, a more compelling investment thesis would be high growth potential at a cheap price. In the upcoming year, Tower Semiconductor's earnings are expected to increase by 46%, indicating a highly optimistic future ahead. This should lead to more robust cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Since TSEM is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase your holdings in the stock. With a positive outlook on the horizon, it seems like this growth has not yet been fully factored into the share price. However, there are also other factors such as capital structure to consider, which could explain the current undervaluation.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on TSEM for a while, now might be the time to make a leap. Its buoyant future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy TSEM. But before you make any investment decisions, consider other factors such as the track record of its management team, in order to make a well-informed buy.
