Tecnoglass Surges 75% in 3 Months: More Upside Left?

NASDAQ: TGLS | Tecnoglass Inc. - Ordinary Shares News, Ratings, and Charts

TGLS – The demand for Tecnoglass’ (TGLS) products has increased significantly over the past few months because of increasing residential construction. But the stock still has plenty of upside because the demand for TGLS’ products from the commercial end-market is expected to increase exponentially in the coming months. Let’s discuss.

A leading manufacturer of architectural glass and associated aluminum products, TecnoglassInc. (TGLS), has seen its shares gain74.8% over the past three months to close Thursday’s trading session at $12.08. It is currently trading just 2.3% below its all-time high of $12.37, which it hit on March 30, 2021. The company has gained significantly over the past few months because of strong residential demand and recovering commercial end-market conditions.

TGLS also recently completed delisting its shares from the Colombia Stock Exchange to save on expenses, time and administrative resources associated with it and further expand its U.S. advancement strategy. It sources more than 90% of its revenues from the United States.

Furthermore,  the company’s board of directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.03 per share payable on April 30, 2021. So, we think this is perhaps an ideal time to bet on the stock.

Here are the factors that we think could influence TGLS’ performance in the upcoming months:

Impressive Historical Growth

TGLS has grown organically and inorganically over the past few years. Its revenue and EPS increased at CAGRs of 6% and 52.1%, respectively, over the past three years. This can be  attributed primarily to the company’s alliance with Schüco USA LLP in September 2018 and strategic joint venture agreement with Compagnie de Saint-Gobain S.A. (CODYY) in January 2019. These arrangements augmented TGLS’ vertical integration strategy by allowing it to acquire an ownership interest in one of the first stages of its production supply chain. The stock’s impressive performance is also reflected in its 27.8% gains over the past three years.

Solid Financials

TGLS’  revenue from the United States segment increased 4.8% year-over-year to $87.84 million for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2020, while its revenue from  other countries segment increased 50.5% year-over-year to $5.17 million. This was mainly driven by strong growth in residential activity. Single-family residential revenues grew roughly 51% year-over-year in the quarter. TGLS’ gross profit also increased 25.8% year-over-year to $36.91 million for the quarter, and its operating income came in at $17.54 million, up nearly 63% year-over-year. Its adjusted EPS of $0.22 represents a 37.5% increase year-over-year.

Favorable Analyst Estimates

Analysts expect TGLS’ EPS to increase 120% for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, 30% for the quarter ending June 30, 2021 and 29.1% in fiscal 2021. Its revenue is expected to grow 24.9% for the quarter ending June 30, 2021.

Also, the stock has an average broker rating of 1.3, indicating favorable analyst sentiment. All five Wall Street analysts that have rated the stock have rated it a Strong Buy or Buy.
