Bottom Line: Should I Buy Hydrofarm Holdings Stock?
Hydrofarm Holdings sells high volumes of nutrients, hydroponics, cultivation equipment and grow equipment. They have a strong wholesale business.
They’ve recently done some acquisitions (Heavy 16, and House & Garden) to raise the already strong brand offerings that they carry at their retail and distribution stores. Currently they have over 5,000 items in stock.
Their CEO, William Douglas Toler, comes from Hostess Brands where he turned them around to profitability. He guided them to over 50% gains in their stock price.
This company only went public at the end of 2020. Since then their price jumped to the mid 90s and then dropped to where it is now, just under $50 per share. There could be some value at this price.
They have around $309 million from selling an additional 5.5 million shares at $59 in May 2021 and should use this to continue their string of acquisitions. They have strong revenue growth QoQ and strong estimates of revenue growth for the next two years. For all these reasons we give them a Strong rating.
