Voyager Digital as a long-term investment
In 2021, a lot of companies have used the rise in their stocks to raise capital by selling shares. Voyager Digital also followed a similar strategy. However, it didn't go for a public issue. Instead, it opted for a private placement of shares at $13.10 per share to raise $100 million.
Voyager Digital would use these funds to invest in its fast-growing business. It has a big market opportunity ahead of itself. The company is also looking at geographical expansion, new product launches, and increased penetration in existing markets and products. Voyager Digital is enhancing its existing infrastructure to cater to the increasing demand.
Interestingly, while growth stocks have been under pressure over the last month amid rising bond yields, we haven’t seen a sell-off in VYGVF stock. In contrast, the stock has been rising to new highs. The stock looks like a good stock to hold for the long term given the strong growth and market opportunity.
Analysts expect the company’s revenues to rise 162 percent YoY to $352 million in fiscal 2022, which would end on June 30, 2022. The company’s current market capitalization is $3.54 billion, which would mean a price-to-sales multiple of around 10x in fiscal 2022. The multiples seem reasonable looking at the explosive growth.
