Cimatron: Shares Remain Attractively Valued, Says Roth Capital
In a research report issued today, Roth Capital analyst Richard Baldry reiterated coverage with a Buy rating on shares of Cimatron Limited (CIMT), and a $10.00 price target. The report follows the company solid second-quarter earnings results. Cimatron’s 2Q14 revenues of $11.8M narrowly exceeded Baldry’s $11.6M forecast while pro forma EPS of $0.14 matched Baldry’s estimate.
Baldry commented: “With solid profitability sustained since 2009’s economic downturn, CIMT announced a dividend policy to distribute at least 50% of net income annually beginning in 2015. Representing a roughly 4% dividend yield, and given shares are down approximately 40% from recent highs, we believe shares remain attractively valued.”
The analyst added, “As we view 2H13 and 1H14 results as good, we see the roughly 40% pullback from recent highs as overdone. Our 2014 forecast calls for record revenues and EPS which, in addition to the new dividend policy, appear solid catalysts for shares to return to former highs, in our view. Our $10.00 price target applies a 15x multiple to our 2015 $0.58 pro forma EPS forecast and adds a cash reserve estimate. Risk factors to achieving our price target include manufacturing sector dependence and economic-driven volatility, acquisition integration risks, and sentiment volatility related to 3D printing.”
