in INVESTING IDEAS by

Qorvo Inc (NYSE: QRVO), an information technology firm with a market capitalization of $10.3 billion, saw its share price increase by 16.1% over the last month. As a large-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, could shares still be trading at a relatively cheap price? Let’s take a look at Qorvo’s outlook and value based on its most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.


Is Qorvo Still Cheap?

The stock seems fairly valued at the moment according to 5 separate valuation analyses. Shares are trading roughly 3% above its intrinsic value. This means if you were to buy Qorvo today, you’d be paying a reasonable price for it. If you believe that the stock is really worth $79.68, then there isn’t much room for the share price to appreciate beyond where it’s currently trading.

Although, there may be an opportunity to buy in the future. This is because Qorvo’s beta (a measure of share price volatility) is high, meaning its price movements will be exaggerated relative to the rest of the market. If the market is bearish, the company’s shares will likely fall by more than the rest of the market, providing a prime buying opportunity.


What Does The Future Of Qorvo Look Like?

Investors looking for growth in their portfolio may want to consider the prospects of a company before buying its shares. Buying a great company with a robust outlook at a cheap price is always a good investment, so let’s also take a look at the company’s future expectations.

With EBITDA expected to grow on average of 17.0% over the next couple years, the future certainly appears bright for Qorvo. It looks like higher cash flows are in the cards for shareholders, which should feed into a higher share valuation.


How This Impacts You

Many investors separate stocks into value and growth categories based on quantitative metrics. However, one of the most famous investors in the world views this as foolish. In Warren Buffett’s 1992 letter to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders, Buffett touches upon a subject at odds with much of the investment industry:

“Most analysts feel they must choose between two approaches customarily thought to be in opposition: ‘value’ and ‘growth.’ Indeed, many investment professionals see any mixing of the two terms as a form of intellectual cross-dressing. We view that as fuzzy thinking… In our opinion, the two approaches are joined at the hip: Growth is always a component in the calculation of value.”

While investors tend to categorize stocks into value and growth, some of the most successful investors view growth as simply one component of a company’s value.

Qorvo’s optimistic future growth appears to have been factored into the current share price with the stock now trading near its intrinsic value. As a shareholder, you may have already conducted your fundamental analysis on the company and the stock’s recent appreciation may have been expected. Therefore, it may be time for investors to take some chips off the table. For prospective investors looking to purchase shares of Qorvo, it may be worth holding off until the stock develops a wider margin of safety.
