I just ran an Inherent Value calc on Xicor with the following inputs:Revenue Growth Rates: 20% for 3 years, followed by 5% in perpetuity.Fiscal Year 2000 Revenues: $138M (Source: 1Q Actuals + Chase H&Q projections for 2Q,3Q,4Q)Operating Profit Margins - 17% (Source: Chase)Tax Rate - 35%Cost of Capital (self-calculated) - 11.3%I discounted the Free Cash Flows for an explicit period (3 years) followed by a residual period and arrived at an inherent value of $18.51. This is slightly below last weeks trading range and significantly above current price of $6.31. My most conservative (WAY overly conservative in my opinion) valuation has an IV of $8.06, a premium of 25% over current stock price. I see little, if any downside to this stock. I have an 18 month price target of $22 on XICO. I bought 400 shares (I'm young, so this isn't a bad sized position for my portfolio) and I plan to buy 500 more in the near future.This is now my most watched stock. Rambus (RMBS) and Cymer (CYMI) have to settle for spots #2 and #3, respectively.- Matt
I am new to the investing world (& know nothing about what i'm doing) & new to Xicor. I figured if the analysts thought it was good at 17 - it ought to be terrific at 6 1/2. Amazes me how a company that still has earnings ,just 2 cents off of what they projected can still have a huge drop. This investing stuff is going to be hard to understand.
