Generac Holdings’ diverse product suite, dominant market position in home standby power, and existing national installer network are hard to replicate assets.
Windham’s constructive view on Generac Holdings is largely based on the strength of its commercial and industrial segment. He forecasts the company’s 2023-24 revenue and adjusted EPS to grow by 7.0% and 10%, respectively.
Much of the bad news is already priced in
According to the UBS analyst, the post-COVID slowdown in demand for Generac’s home standby power is already priced into the stock that’s down more than 20% for the year. His note reads:
We see the current valuation as providing an attractive 4:1 upside/downside opportunity with the current share price offering an attractive entry point into a likely long-term smart home energy winner.
In April, Generac Holdings reported its financial results for the first quarter that easily topped Wall Street expectations. The NYSE-listed firm also raised its guidance for full-year sales. Wall Street also has a consensus rating of “buy” on GNRC.
