Why We Increased Our Valuation For Micron By ~60%

We recently updated our valuation for Micron Technology ( MU ) by approximately 60%, and our current price estimate for the company is $24. In the last 6 months, Micron's stock price has risen by more than 60% mainly driven by a significant improvement in industry dynamics, increasing price stability (especially DRAM), and Micron's progress on its cost cutting initiative. While the improving demand-supply scenario has driven top line growth, price stability combined with the company's cost cutting initiative has given a significant boost to Micron's bottom line. In the first six months of fiscal 2017, Micron's revenue has increased by 37%, while its net income has risen by a staggering 885%, compared to the same period last year. Micron reported losses for three out of the four quarters in fiscal 2016, and regained profitability in Q1 2017.
