New York Times

New York Times (NYSE:NYT) stock, a diversified media company that includes newspapers, internet businesses, television and radio stations, has declined by almost 3% over the last five trading days and currently stands at around $49. The market probably reacted downwards after its full-year 2020 release, where subscription revenue grew 10% year-over-year (y-o-y), but the decline in ad revenue (-26% y-o-y), as well as the declines in higher-cost and higher-margin print subscriptions, offset the growth in digital. In comparison, the broader S&P 500 returned close to 2% growth over the last five days. Now, is NYT stock poised to fall further? We believe that the company’s stock is undervalued at 39x consensus 2022 earnings and that the stock could grow going forward. Specifically, there is a 60% chance of a rise in NYT’s stock over the next month (21 trading days) based on our machine learning analysis of trends in the stock price over the last five years.
