Valuation Methodology: Price/Book Value Multiple Based Relative Valuation
(Analysis by Kalkine Group)
* % Premium/(Discount) is based on our assessment of the company's NTM trading multiple after considering its key growth drivers, economic moat, stock's historical trading multiples versus peer average/median, and investment risks.
LU's share price has remained on a bearish trend, fallen 64.49% in the past twelve months and is currently leaning close to the lower end of its 52-week range of USD 4.19 to USD 15.94. We have valued the stock using the Price/Book Value-based relative valuation methodology and arrived at a target price of USD 5.14.
Considering the continuous fall in share price, a decline in cash from operating activities, margin stress, current valuation, and other geopolitical risks, we recommend a "Sell" rating on the stock at the closing price of USD 5.54, down 4.65%, as of March 03, 2022. Markets are trading in a highly volatile zone currently due to certain macro-economic issues and geopolitical tensions prevailing.
