Is There Now An Opportunity In Micron Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:MU)?

Simply Wall St

Today we're going to take a look at the well-established Micron Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:MU). The company's stock saw a significant share price rise of over 20% in the past couple of months on the NASDAQGS. With many analysts covering the large-cap stock, we may expect any price-sensitive announcements have already been factored into the stock’s share price. But what if there is still an opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at Micron Technology’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if the opportunity still exists.

What is Micron Technology worth?

Great news for investors – Micron Technology is still trading at a fairly cheap price. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $92.52, which is above what the market is valuing the company at the moment. This indicates a potential opportunity to buy low. However, given that Micron Technology’s share is fairly volatile (i.e. its price movements are magnified relative to the rest of the market) this could mean the price can sink lower, giving us another chance to buy in the future. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for share price volatility.

What does the future of Micron Technology look like?

NasdaqGS:MU Past and Future Earnings, February 24th 2020

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. With profit expected to grow by 88% over the next couple of years, the future seems bright for Micron Technology. It looks like higher cash flow is on the cards for the stock, which should feed into a higher share valuation.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Since MU is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase your holdings in the stock. With a positive outlook on the horizon, it seems like this growth has not yet been fully factored into the share price. However, there are also other factors such as financial health to consider, which could explain the current undervaluation.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on MU for a while, now might be the time to make a leap. Its buoyant future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy MU. But before you make any investment decisions, consider other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to make a well-informed buy.
