PerkinElmer, Inc. does not satisfy the requirements of either the Enterprising Investor or the more conservative Defensive Investor. The Defensive Investor is concerned with the low current ratio, high PEmg and PB ratios. The Enterprising Investor has concerns regarding the level of debt relative to the current assets. As a result, all value investors following the ModernGraham approach should explore other opportunities at this time or proceed cautiously with a speculative attitude.

As for a valuation, the company appears to be Undervalued after growing its EPSmg (normalized earnings) from $1.21 in 2014 to an estimated $2.62 for 2018. This level of demonstrated earnings growth outpaces the market’s implied estimate of 10.11% annual earnings growth over the next 7-10 years. As a result, the ModernGraham valuation model, based on the Benjamin Graham value investing formula, returns an estimate of intrinsic value above the price.

At the time of valuation, further research into PerkinElmer, Inc. revealed the company was trading above its Graham Number of $41.99. The company pays a dividend of $0.28 per share, for a yield of 0.4% Its PEmg (price over earnings per share – ModernGraham) was 28.72, which was below the industry average of 43.8, which by some methods of valuation makes it one of the most undervalued stocks in its industry.
