Red Cat Holdings: A Good Drone Stock to Invest In?

Dec 29, 2021

Drone-related solutions provider Red Cat Holdings’ (RCAT) top line surged more than 300% in its last quarter, but its losses increased. So, let’s evaluate if it is wise to bet... This story originally appeared on StockNews Drone-related solutions provider Red Cat Holdings’ (RCAT) top line surged more than 300% in its last quarter, but its losses increased. So, let’s evaluate if it is wise to bet on the stock now based on its increased contracts from several organizations. Read on. shutterstock.com - StockNews Puerto Rico-based Red Cat Holdings, Inc. ( RCAT ) provides products, services, and solutions to the drone industry through its five subsidiaries: Teal Drones, Fat Shark Holdings, Rotor Riot, Skypersonic, and Red Cat Propware. The company made its stock market debut on April 30, 2021, and has received several contracts. Skypersonic was awarded a five-year contract with NASA on September 27. Also, Teal Drones was awarded a firm-fixed-price, multiple-award blanket purchase agreement (BPA) by the United States Customs and Border Protection on December 22, which helped the stock soar in price after hitting its 52-week low of $1.78 on December 21. However, the stock has declined 41.7% in price over the past three months and 1.9% over the past month to close yesterday’s trading session at $2.21. In July, RCAT closed a $60 million public offering of its shares. The company is expected to use the proceeds to provide funding for services, sales, and marketing efforts for its Red Cat Drone Services, strategic acquisitions, related expenses, and general working capital. However, the stock issue could lead to share dilution. Also, the company reported losses in the last quarter. So, RCAT’s near-term prospects look bleak. Here is what could shape RCAT’s performance in the near term: Adverse Impact of Growing U.S.-China Tensions According to the prospectus filed by RCAT on April 30, it obtains components for its drones from a limited number of suppliers, primarily from China . But China has been engaged in a trade war with the United States over the past few years, and RCAT does not have long-term agreements with these suppliers that obligates them to sell components to it. So, its reliance on these suppliers entails significant risks and uncertainties. In July 2021, the Biden administration blamed China for the hacking activities that exploited Microsoft's email software. And China’s Personal Information Protection Law (PIPL) came into effect on November 1, 2021, outlining data processing requirements for companies outside China, including passing a security assessment conducted by state authorities. According to a Bloomberg report, drones took center stage amid the U.S.-China war on data harvesting. So, RCAT’s operations could be hurt by the growing tension between the world’s two largest economies. Increased Competition RCAT faces intense competition with established and well-known diversified consumer electronics manufacturers, such as Samsung Electronics Co. and Sony Group Corporation ( SONY ), and software and other products companies, such as Microsoft Corporation ( MSFT ). It also competes with additional established, well-known First Person View (FPV) drone manufacturers, such as Seiko Epson Corporation ( SEKEY ) and MicroLED. Top Line Growth Does Not Translate into Bottom Line Improvement For its fiscal second quarter, ended October 31, 2021, RCAT’s revenues increased 335.5% year-over-year to $1.86 million. However, its operating expenses increased 394.6% year-over-year to $2.91 million. And its operating loss came in at $2.76 million, representing a 463.4% year-over-year rise, while its net loss increased 279.4% year-over-year to $2.74 million. Also, its loss per share was $0.05 compared to $0.04 in the year-ago period.
