NXPI - Embedded Expectations Analysis - 2021 06 11

NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NXPI:USA) currently trades above recent averages relative to UAFRS-based (Uniform) earnings, with a 17.2x Uniform P/E. At these levels, the market has bullish expectations for the firm, but management may have concerns about revenue growth, build rate declines, and operating expenses

Specifically, management may lack confidence in their ability to sustain industrial and IoT revenue beats, ramp business growth in the second half of the year, and benefit from increased electric drivetrain penetration. In addition, they may have concerns about build rate declines, the impact of the Austin factory shutdown on their business, and increases in operating expenses. Finally, they may be concerned about increases in their distribution channel's days of inventory, and they may lack confidence in their ability to ramp customer deliveries and distribute excess free cash flow to shareholders

In 2009, just as the dust was settling from the last major equity and credit market crises, we launched a boutique research firm with the intention of breaking Wall Street’s biases and broken incentives:

  • GAAP and IFRS have failed to provide rules for reliable financial statement reporting
  • Stock analyst recommendations are not grounded in disciplined financial analysis
  • Credit agencies have been set up to grossly fail in their responsibilities to investors and the public markets
  • Utter lack of willingness of major research firms to employ the the most advanced forensic analysis available

We sought to provide investors and company analysts with a source of information that changed all that.
Many years later, our business model remains because little has changed on Wall Street.

  • Corporate credit ratings remain years behind the fundamental underpinnings of company performance
  • Stock analysts continue to make recommendations with deeply inherent biases
  • Research firms have failed to break down the walls between credit, equity, and macroeconomic research
  • The governing accounting bodies have created more leeway for mis-estimates and mis-classifications as financials have become unwieldy and overwhelming

The integrity of Valens Research is founded in our disciplined processes and analytics. No “star” analysts. No corporate advisory relationships. No-nonsense opinions and recommendations.
