Arrow Electronics, Inc. (NYSE:ARW), which is in the electronic business, and is based in United States, saw a significant share price rise of over 20% in the past couple of months on the NYSE. 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. But what if there is still an opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at Arrow Electronics’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if the opportunity still exists.
What is Arrow Electronics worth?According to my valuation model, Arrow Electronics seems to be fairly priced at around 8.6% below my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Arrow Electronics today, you’d be paying a fair price for it. And if you believe that the stock is really worth $86.96, then there’s not much of an upside to gain from mispricing. Is there another opportunity to buy low in the future? Since Arrow Electronics’s share price is quite volatile, we could potentially see it sink lower (or rise higher) in the future, giving us another chance to buy. 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.
Can we expect growth from Arrow Electronics?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. Though in the case of Arrow Electronics, it is expected to deliver a relatively unexciting earnings growth of 9.9%, 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? It seems like the market has already priced in ARW’s future outlook, with shares trading around its fair value. However, there are also other important factors which we haven’t considered today, such as the track record of its management team. Have these factors changed since the last time you looked at the stock? Will you have enough confidence to invest in the company should the price drop below its fair value?
Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on ARW, now may not be the most optimal time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value. However, the positive outlook means it’s worth further examining other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
