TJX Companies Inc (NYSE:TJX) Lacks Value as an Investment

Shares of TJX Companies Inc (NYSE:TJX) cannot be considered a value, they simply do not fit the definition of value, but there is reason for hope, and two years from now, if analysts are right about estimates and price remains the same, we may actually see value in the stock’s price.

Stock Traders Daily recommends that investors ‘NOT OWN’ TJX based on valuation.

The stock is tradeable, but as a long term investment we see this as dead money for the next two years as the company works its way out of an earnings growth slump and starts to bring value back to the bottom line.  Right now, based on our TTM assessments of earnings growth and PE multiples, TJX trades with a PEG Ratio of 6, and our definition of value is between 0 and 1.5. 

Based on PEG, TJX will not get close to 1.5 until the end of 2016, and then it will still be above 1.5, so there is an eternity between now and when TJX MIGHT become a better value, and that assumes there are no hiccups along the way, but we believe there will be.

Although maybe not particular to TJX, and if TJX can continue to capture market share that would be great along the way, we are expecting and preparing to profit from an economic downturn.  We believe that this will put pressure on stocks, and stocks that lack value like TJX can be vulnerable to value-based retracements.  Because the PEG for TJX is 6, there’s plenty of value based retracement possible here.
