Why Repligen Corporation (NASDAQ:RGEN) Could Be Worth Watching

Let's talk about the popular Repligen Corporation (NASDAQ:RGEN). The company's shares led the NASDAQGS gainers with a relatively large price hike in the past couple of weeks. 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 examine Repligen’s valuation and outlook in more detail to determine if there’s still a bargain opportunity.

What Is Repligen Worth?

The stock seems fairly valued at the moment according to my valuation model. It’s trading around 0.63% above my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Repligen today, you’d be paying a relatively reasonable price for it. And if you believe the company’s true value is $188.81, there’s only an insignificant downside when the price falls to its real value. Is there another opportunity to buy low in the future? Since Repligen’s share price is quite volatile, we could potentially see it sink lower (or rise higher) in the future, giving us another chance to buy. 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 kind of growth will Repligen generate?

Future outlook is an important aspect when you’re looking at buying a stock, especially if you are an investor looking for growth in your portfolio. 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. Repligen's earnings over the next few years are expected to increase by 38%, indicating a highly optimistic future ahead. This should lead to more robust cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.

What This Means For You

Are you a shareholder? RGEN’s optimistic future growth appears to have been factored into the current share price, with shares trading around its fair value. However, there are also other important factors which we haven’t considered today, such as the track record of its management team. Have these factors changed since the last time you looked at the stock? Will you have enough conviction to buy should the price fluctuates below the true value?

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on RGEN, now may not be the most optimal time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value. However, the optimistic prospect is encouraging for the company, which means it’s worth further examining other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
