Should You Investigate Diodes Incorporated (NASDAQ:DIOD) At US$66.78?

Simply Wall St ·  {{timeTz}}

Diodes Incorporated (NASDAQ:DIOD), is not the largest company out there, but it received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the NASDAQGS over the last few months, increasing to US$84.17 at one point, and dropping to the lows of US$60.95. Some share price movements can give investors a better opportunity to enter into the stock, and potentially buy at a lower price. A question to answer is whether Diodes' current trading price of US$66.78 reflective of the actual value of the mid-cap? Or is it currently undervalued, providing us with the opportunity to buy? Let's take a look at Diodes's outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.

What Is Diodes Worth?

Good news, investors! Diodes is still a bargain right now according to my price multiple model, which compares the company's price-to-earnings ratio to the industry average. I've used the price-to-earnings ratio in this instance because there's not enough visibility to forecast its cash flows. The stock's ratio of 10.59x is currently well-below the industry average of 16.7x, meaning that it is trading at a cheaper price relative to its peers. What's more interesting is that, Diodes'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 does the future of Diodes look like?

Investors looking for growth in their portfolio may want to consider the prospects of a company before buying its shares. 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 Diodes, it is expected to deliver a relatively unexciting earnings growth of 9.5%, 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? Even though growth is relatively muted, since DIOD is currently trading below the industry PE ratio, it may be a great time to increase your holdings in the stock. However, there are also other factors such as capital structure to consider, which could explain the current price multiple.

Are you a potential investor? If you've been keeping an eye on DIOD for a while, now might be the time to make a leap. Its future profit outlook isn't fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it's not too late to buy DIOD. 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 investment decision.

With this in mind, we wouldn't consider investing in a stock unless we had a thorough understanding of the risks. For example, we've discovered 1 warning sign that you should run your eye over to get a better picture of Diodes.
