The company has established a network of consumer chains, thanks to its robust capital structure, highly scalable operational footprint, organized executive team, and passion for improving the quality of life of its customers. This author is bullish on TLRY stock.
While Tilray enjoys a lengthy growth runway, backed by current growth momentum, it still needs to grow into its valuation. While the company is profitable on a forward EBITDA basis, it is not expected to turn a GAAP net profit for the foreseeable future.
The EV/forward revenue ratio is pretty attractive at just 7.9, but the EV/forward EBITDA ratio is still quite high at 67.8. Fortunately, growth is expected to be strong over the next several years, with EBITDA expected to surge by 197.4% in 2021, 129.5% in 2022, and 66.9% in 2023.
Wall Street’s Take
From Wall Street analysts, Tilray earns a Moderate Buy consensus rating based on four Buy ratings, six Hold ratings, and zero Sell ratings in the past three months. Additionally, the average TLRY price target of $19.33 puts the upside potential at 44.6%.
Summary and Conclusions
Tilray is enjoying rapid growth, thanks to its strong presence in a dynamic-growth industry. EBITDA is expected to soar over the coming years, making the 67.8 EV/forward EBITDA ratio more palatable than it might otherwise appear.
Furthermore, Wall Street analysts are generally bullish on the stock. As a result, the current valuation looks pretty attractive. The stock looks like it could be a good buy.
