We are about to publish a research report on a stock which we predict will be one of our best ideas since we founded GeoInvesting in 2007. We also plan to host a Skull Session Fireside Chat with the management team.
What is even better about this idea is that Wall Street analysts have totally ignored the company’s growth trajectory in constructing sales and earnings per share estimates published on all sites like Yahoo finance.
Our calculations result in financial estimates well above analyst earnings per share estimates which could result in the stock exceeding $100 per share vs. its current share price of comfortably under $20, translating into a return of over 500%.
A past 2-time Model Portfolio Holding is once again in our crosshairs. We classify it as a BigCapMicro, or a microcap stock that produces large cap revenues, allowing it to gain more respect from investors. Our first two rounds with the stock in 2015 and 2019 yielded final returns of 185.91% and 33.71%, respectively.
This go-around, we see a return of at least 70% in the near term, and over 500% within 3 years, fueled by the company’s new growth trends, amid a new CEO’s decisions to concentrate on market segments that are less cyclical and carry higher margins.
Furthermore, the stock meets a huge factor from our 8 (and expanding) multibagger checklist: cross selling products across its customer base that resulted from a key acquisition of a company that has industry leading products that competitors just don’t have.
We are most excited to revisit this company because Wall Street analysts are so off the mark with their estimates. We predict the stock will start to rise once analysts start revising their estimates upward. To put this into perspective, according to our calculations, the company is closing in on $200 million in revenue and $4.20 in earnings per share. This compares to analyst revenue and EPS estimates of $140 million and around $1.50!
The company sells safety products to industrial and government customers in the U.S and across the globe, serving nearly 20 commercial and government markets.
One of the reasons we like this company is that one of its key strategic advantages lies in owning and operating manufacturing facilities in several different countries. Not only does this vertical integration position the company favorably during supply chain challenges, but it also enhances its pricing competitiveness compared to rivals reliant on external contractors. Moreover, it allows for rapid production scaling in response to local market emergencies, aligning with the global trend of protectionism (aka not outsourcing to foreign countries).
Our BigCapMicro classification of the company is supported by several key points.
While the company’s current trailing P/E ratio of approximately 20x might seem a little expensive, we see potential for substantial upside. Looking at the valuation on a trailing basis is like looking in the rearview mirror, as many investors are doing. This is what is giving us an opportunity ahead of what we think is coming.
A reasonable P/E ratio of 15x applied to the low end of our EPS target of $3.46 would imply an eventual price target of $51.90.
However, using a P/E of 20x, the P/E the stock is currently trading at, would imply a target price target of $69.20. Referencing our base case earnings per share estimate of $4.20, we derive a price target of $84.00.
Ultimately, considering the company’s growth trajectory, a multiple of 25x a on base case earnings per share estimate should be in the cards, justifying an eventual price target of $105.00.
