Best Value Stocks To Own For 2019

In our first installment of this series of articles on the value of your company, we identified that your firm has multiple values concurrently — it depends on the type of buyer that is looking at it.  Each type of buyer is evaluating the benefits and risks . . . to the buyer.  The buyer does not care what the company is worth to you.  The buyer cares what the company is worth to her/him/them.  Period.

So, let’s say that there’s a buyer looking for a company in your industry of your size.  What do companies in your industry and of your size look like?  And, based on that, where does that put your company?

For the benefit of regular readers of this column, what quality of steak is your company?  Is it USDA Prime?  Is it USDA Choice?  Is it USDA Select?

It turns out that the Internal Revenue Service maintains statistics for each industry, which can be broken down into company size.  These statistics reflect the average balance sheet, income statement, profitability ratios,  revenue growth rate, etc., etc.  For example, let’s say that you have a company in waste management and you have revenues in the $20 million to $50 million range.  The IRS statistics reflect a particular measure of earnings (EBITDA) as a percentage of revenue as being about 13%.  They will also reflect an annual revenue growth rate of roughly 5.4%.

    Data source: Silicon Laboratories.

    What happened with Silicon Labs this quarter?
    Revenue was above the high end of guidance provided in late January, which called for a range of $196 million to $202 million. On an adjusted (non-GAAP) basis, which excludes items like equity compensation and acquisition costs, net income was $38.3 million, or $0.87 per share — also above guidance for adjusted earnings per share of between $0.73 and $0.79. IoT revenue grew 17% year over year to $103 million. Infrastructure revenue jumped 37% year over year to $49 million. Broadcast revenue declined 3% to $36 million. Access revenue fell 6% to $17 million. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, on April 18, 2018, Silicon Labs closed its $240 million acquisition of Sigma Designs’ (NASDAQ:SIGM) Z-Wave business. Silicon Labs had initially agreed to acquire all of Sigma Designs this past December for $282 million, but amended the deal last quarter to include only its Z-Wave business after certain closing conditions weren’t met. In any case, the purchase significantly expands Silicon Labs’ position in mesh networking for smart homes.
