Does Hudson Capital Deserve a Place in Your Portfolio?

Cross-border shipping company Hudson Capital (HUSN) has been making several positive developments, but it is yet to turn profitable. So, let’s find out if it is wise to bet on the stock now.

Hudson Capital Inc. (HUSN) operates a transportation logistics technology platform in North America. It recently acquired Freight App, Inc. as a wholly-owned subsidiary and projects 2022 revenue to grow over 86% year-over-year. In addition, its newly launched technology solution, Fr8PrivateFleet, has already secured new and existing customers, including one of Mexico’s largest food producers.

HUSN sold its wholly-owned subsidiary, Hong Kong Internet Financial Services, to private investors. The stock has lost 56.8% over the past three months and 67.1% over the past nine months to close Friday’s trading session at $2.63. Furthermore, it is currently trading 73.4% below its 52-week high of $9.90, which it hit on August 5, 2021.

Here’s what could influence HUSN’s performance in the upcoming months:

Low Profitability

In terms of trailing-12-month CAPEX/Sales, HUSN’s 1.47% is lower than the industry average of 1.57%. Moreover, the stock’s trailing-12-month net income margin, ROTC, and ROTA are negative compared to the industry averages of 30.59%, 6.09%, and 1.34%, respectively.

Stretched Valuation

In terms of trailing-12-month EV/S, HUSN’s 13.64x is 356.3% higher than the industry average of 2.99x. Likewise, its trailing-12-month P/S of 3.83x is 22.5% higher than the industry average of 3.12x.
