After a strong start, 2021 obliterated Canadian sub-$100 million market cap stocks. As of November 30, the median stock in this group was trading at only ~38% of its 52-week highs.
Not down 38% – DOWN 62%!
As Jeff Bezos said over 20 years ago:
“The stock is not the company. And the company is not the stock.”
The same is true for THIS list of Canadian micro- and small cap names that have been pounded by 2021 tax loss selling.
Industry valuations of solar projects under development suggest that UGE International’s current 83.7MW project backlog is undervalued.
UGE’s goal of 120MW of project backlog by the end of 2021 makes the Company’s current undervaluation even more compelling.
Applying peer transactions to UGE’s 357MW (net of backlog) pipeline potentially puts the stock in future multi-bagger territory.
After strong shareholder returns in 2020, 2021 could be another strong year for UGE International, a developer and operator of community solar projects (mostly in the U.S.). Why? Compared to solar project peer transactions, the market is undervaluing UGE shares. Plus, almost C$7 million was added to UGE’s balance sheet this week, in an oversubscribed offering.
UGE International announced the sale of one of its completed solar projects (AND 3 new ones AND the completion of another).
Last week, Sophic Capital wrote that solar projects under construction have sold for multiples much higher than what the market values UGE International.
UGE’s project sale multiple shows that the market still undervalues the Company.
