Teva Pharmaceutical Industries: Why Investors Should Buy the Dip

NYSE: TEVA | Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. ADR News, Ratings, and Charts

TEVA – Shares of Teva Pharmaceutical (TEVA) have plunged in price due to the company’s weak financials and its reduction of its top-line guidance. However, can the stock rebound by the company leveraging its broad product and services portfolio? Read on. Let’s find out.

Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Limited (TEVA) develops, manufactures, markets, and distributes generic medicines, specialty medicines, and biopharmaceutical products in North America, Europe, and internationally. The Petah, Tikva, Israel, company reported soft fiscal fourth-quarter results due to lower sales in its North America segment. While its $3.66 billion in revenue for the quarter missed the consensus estimate by 2.1%, its $0.55 adjusted EPS met the Street’s estimate.

The stock has declined 24.5% in price over the past month to close Friday’s trading session at $7.76.

The company lowered its 2022 revenue guidance to $15.40 – $16 billion from $15.60 – $16.20 billion due to currency headwinds and lower Copaxone sales. In addition, it is currently trading 32.8% below its 52-week high of $11.55, which it hit on June 10, 2021. However, it is seeing the continuing growth in Austedo prescriptions. Also, the company has been achieving market share growth for Ajovy. It also launched the first generic version of Revlimid in the United States. So, the stock’s near-term prospects look bright.

Here is what I think could influence TEVA’s performance in the upcoming months:

Favorable Analyst Estimates

In addition, its EPS is expected to grow at 1.7% per annum over the next five years. Furthermore, Wall Street analysts expect the stock to hit $10 in the near term, indicating a potential 28.9% upside.

Low Valuation

In terms of forward non-GAAP P/E, TEVA’s 3.10x is 84.1% lower than the 19.56x industry average. Likewise, its 0.55x forward P/S is 86.8% higher than the 4.18x industry average. Furthermore, the stock’s 0.76x forward P/B is 71.7% higher than the 2.70x industry average.
