Dissecting the Numbers for NVIDIA Corporation (NVDA) and Baytex Energy Corp. (BTE)

NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) shares are up more than 31.14% this year and recently increased 0.97% or $1.69 to settle at $175.07. Baytex …

NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) shares are up more than 31.14% this year and recently increased 0.97% or $1.69 to settle at $175.07. Baytex Energy Corp. (NYSE:BTE), on the other hand, is down -18.18% year to date as of 07/26/2019. It currently trades at $1.44 and has returned 0.00% during the past week.

NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) and Baytex Energy Corp. (NYSE:BTE) are the two most active stocks in the Semiconductor – Specialized industry based on today’s trading volumes. We will compare the two companies based on the strength of various metrics, including growth, profitability, risk, return, and valuation to determine if one is a better investment than the other.

Growth

Companies that can consistently grow earnings at a high compound rate usually have the greatest potential to create value for shareholders in the long-run. Analysts expect NVDA to grow earnings at a 10.58% annual rate over the next 5 years. Comparatively, BTE is expected to grow at a 18.20% annual rate. All else equal, BTE’s higher growth rate would imply a greater potential for capital appreciation.

Profitability and Returns

Just, if not more, important than the growth rate is the quality of that growth. Growth can actual be harmful to investors if it comes at the cost of weak profitability and low returns. To adjust for differences in capital structure we’ll use EBITDA margin and Return on Investment (ROI) as measures of profitability and return. NVIDIA Corporation (NVDA) has an EBITDA margin of 31%. This suggests that NVDA underlying business is more profitable NVDA’s ROI is 32.50% while BTE has a ROI of -3.00%. The interpretation is that NVDA’s business generates a higher return on investment than BTE’s.

Cash Flow

Cash is king when it comes to investing. NVDA’s free cash flow (“FCF”) per share for the trailing twelve months was +0.80. Comparatively, BTE’s free cash flow per share was +0.01. On a percent-of-sales basis, NVDA’s free cash flow was 4.16% while BTE converted 0% of its revenues into cash flow. This means that, for a given level of sales, NVDA is able to generate more free cash flow for investors.

Liquidity and Financial Risk

Liquidity and leverage ratios provide insight into the financial health of a company, and allow investors to determine the likelihood that the company will be able to continue operating as a going concern. NVDA has a current ratio of 9.00 compared to 0.90 for BTE. This means that NVDA can more easily cover its most immediate liabilities over the next twelve months. NVDA’s debt-to-equity ratio is 0.00 versus a D/E of 0.70 for BTE. BTE is therefore the more solvent of the two companies, and has lower financial risk.

Valuation

NVDA trades at a forward P/E of 24.60, a P/B of 10.95, and a P/S of 9.84, compared to a forward P/E of 8.67, a P/B of 0.35, and a P/S of 0.82 for BTE. NVDA is the expensive of the two stocks on an earnings, book value and sales basis. Given that earnings are what matter most to investors, analysts tend to place a greater weight on the P/E.

Analyst Price Targets and Opinions

Just because a stock is cheaper doesn’t mean there’s more value to be had. In order to assess value we need to compare the current price to where it’s likely to trade in the future. NVDA is currently priced at a -4.83% to its one-year price target of 183.95. Comparatively, BTE is -63.45% relative to its price target of 3.94. This suggests that BTE is the better investment over the next year.

Risk and Volatility

No discussion on value is complete without taking into account risk. Analysts use a stock’s beta, which measures the volatility of a stock compared to the overall market, to measure systematic risk. A stock with a beta above 1 is more volatile than the market. Conversely, a beta below 1 implies a below average level of risk. NVDA has a beta of 2.06 and BTE’s beta is 2.53. NVDA’s shares are therefore the less volatile of the two stocks.

Insider Activity and Investor Sentiment

Comparing the number of shares sold short to the float is a method analysts often use to get a reading on investor sentiment. NVDA has a short ratio of 1.05 compared to a short interest of 8.31 for BTE. This implies that the market is currently less bearish on the outlook for NVDA.

Summary

NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) beats Baytex Energy Corp. (NYSE:BTE) on a total of 9 of the 14 factors compared between the two stocks. NVDA is more profitable, generates a higher return on investment, has higher cash flow per share, has a higher cash conversion rate, higher liquidity and has lower financial risk. Finally, NVDA has better sentiment signals based on short interest.
