Vishay Intertechnology: It Is No Use Going Against The Tide
Summary VSH has done better than most in what can be described as a tough 2022, but not when viewed in the long run. The stock’s lack of progress stands out, especially since VSH has a number of strengths, which include solid growth and low valuations. There may be no signs of it at the moment, but the market seems convinced the numbers are destined to get worse. Long VSH is not without its merits, but the stock’s previous track record suggests it is unlikely to prove worthwhile. Vishay Intertechnology (VSH) does not have too much to complain about given the circumstances. Business is still going strong, unlike some of its peers in the semiconductor industry. The stock has also outperformed this year, comparatively speaking, having fallen much less in comparison to most other companies. However, while some may see all of this as a reason to be bullish, others are unlikely to agree. The bull case for VSH is not as clear-cut as it needs to be. Why will be covered next. VSH has outperformed at a difficult time It's true times have been tough for stocks, but some have still done better than others in 2022. One of the sectors hardest hit has been the semiconductor sector. For instance, the iShares PHLX Semiconductor ETF (SOXX) has lost 35% YTD. In comparison, the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) has lost 19% YTD, which is significantly less. Source: finviz.com VSH falls under the semiconductor sector as a leading supplier of discrete semiconductors. However, VSH has not fallen as much as other semis. VSH has lost 14% YTD, meaning it has outperformed this year. The stock did suffer a sizable drop in the first two months of 2022, but it has since shown to be fairly resilient given the circumstances. Many companies have seen their stock sink in recent months with all the turmoil, but VSH has basically gone sideways. This is quite an achievement with everything going on that have weighed on stocks. At the same time, it's worth noting that the stock has not actually done all that well in recent years. The stock has gone in circles in the last five years. The stock is currently in the $18-19 price region, a level it reached back in 2017. It's also a region VSH has revisited on numerous occasions in the last five years. The stock has essentially gone sideways, going up and down, only to wind up back to where it began. If anyone put their money on VSH in the preceding years, they probably have little to nothing to show for. The company has done better than the stock Keep in mind that stocks have soared higher in the last five years, notwithstanding the decline this year. For instance, SOXX has still gained over 126% in the last five years even though it has lost a third of its value in 2022. In contrast, VSH has gained a meager 4% in comparison. The relatively poor performance of the stock stands out. It's after all not as if VSH has done nothing to warrant a higher stock price. The top and the bottom line have made substantial gains in the preceding years. While the stock has stalled, earnings per share, for example, have grown at a CAGR of 35% in the last five years, which is nothing to sneeze at. In fact, a look at the most recent quarterly report shows that business is still going strong. VSH beat estimates for the top and the bottom line once again. Q2 revenue increased by 5.4% YoY to $863.5M, a record high. GAAP EPS increased by 21.9% YoY to $0.78 and non-GAAP EPS increased by 34.4% YoY to $0.82. Adjusted EBITDA was $198.9M in Q2 FY2022, up from $163M in Q2 FY2021. Cash and short-term investments reached $947M at the end of Q2. Book-to-bill remains above one. Note that EPS growth got a boost from share buybacks. VSH purchased 1.4M of its own shares for $26.3M in Q2. On the other hand, it's worth mentioning that the record-setting performance was achieved in spite of COVID-19 lockdowns in China, which put two key facilities out of commission for over two months. These facilities were unable to contribute during this time. The quarterly numbers were also negatively affected by fluctuations in foreign exchange rates. Revenue, for instance, would have increased by 3% QoQ and 10% YoY if not for forex. In other words, the quarterly numbers could have been much better than they turned out to be in the end. The table below shows the numbers for Q2 FY2022. (GAAP) Q2 FY2022 Q1 FY2022 Q2 FY2021 QoQ YoY Revenue $863.512M $853.793M $819.120M 1.14% 5.42% Gross margin 30.3% 30.3% 28.0% - 230bps Operating margin 17.5% 17.1% 15.3% 40bps 220bps Operating income $150.823M $146.253M $125.372M 3.12% 20.30% Net income (attributable to VSH) $112.388M $103.573M $93.192M 8.51% 20.60% EPS $0.78 $0.71 $0.64 9.86% 21.88% (Non-GAAP) Adjusted EBITDA margin 23.0% 21.2% 19.9% 180bps 310bps Adjusted EBITDA $198.938M $180.592M $163.031M 10.16% 22.02% Net income (attributable to VSH) $117.793M $103.573M $89.311M 13.73% 31.89% EPS $0.82 $0.71 $0.61 15.49% 34.43% Source: VSH Form 8-K Guidance calls for Q3 FY2022 revenue of $860-900M, an increase of 8.1% YoY at the midpoint. It would also be the fourth consecutive sequential increase in quarterly revenue and the 8th out of the last 9 quarters. Q3 FY2022 (guidance) Q3 FY2021 YoY (midpoint) Revenue $860-900M $814M 8.11% Gross margin 28.5-29.5% 27.7% 130bps Guidance did not extend beyond Q3, but VSH remains upbeat about the outlook longer term. While some softness has popped up in some market segments, strong demand in other segments has more than made up for it. Overall demand remains strong. From the Q2 earnings call: "For the entire year, we again expect a solid performance concerning free cash. Vishay continues to operate under extraordinarily good economic conditions, orders and backlogs at historically high levels. All regions remain principally strong with a currently not transparent situation of the Chinese market. Most of the market segments do very well whereby there is an exception computers and smartphones. Major shortages of supply continue to exist for many product lines." A transcript of the Q2 FY2022 earnings call can be found here. However, it's worth mentioning that analysts, or at least some of them, are not as confident about the outlook as VSH appears to be. Consensus estimates call for non-GAAP EPS of $2.57-3.03 in FY2022, an increase of 10.8-30.6% YoY, but this is predicted to decline to $2.01-2.99 in FY2023. While VSH itself might not be calling for a downturn, some are anticipating one for VSH. There is reason to believe this hypothesis is plausible. It's true EPS has grown at a CAGR of 35.5% in the last 5 years, but this drops to 9.3% in the last 10 years. VSH has done well in recent years in terms of earnings growth, but it was not always this way. The semiconductor industry is after all cyclical and the upturn in earnings in recent years may be followed by a downturn in subsequent years. Note that while VHS itself is not seeing much of a deterioration in quarterly earnings, other semis are. A number of them have lowered their earnings outlook due to weakening demand. Weak guidance from these companies has affected the entire industry, including those who are still in great shape. It's also possible VSH may yet experience a downturn in earnings growth, which some seem to believe could happen as soon as next year as reflected in analysts' estimates.
