Gladstone Commercial Corporation (NASDAQ:GOOD), which is in the reits business, and is based in United States, saw its share price hover around a small range of $20.61 to $22.32 over the last few weeks. But is this actually reflective of the share value of the small-cap? Or is it currently undervalued, providing us with the opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at Gladstone Commercial’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.
What is Gladstone Commercial worth?
Great news for investors – Gladstone Commercial is still trading at a fairly cheap price. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $39.14, which is above what the market is valuing the company at the moment. This indicates a potential opportunity to buy low. Gladstone Commercial’s share price also seems relatively stable compared to the rest of the market, as indicated by its low beta. If you believe the share price should eventually reach its true value, a low beta could suggest it is unlikely to rapidly do so anytime soon, and once it’s there, it may be hard to fall back down into an attractive buying range.
What kind of growth will Gladstone Commercial generate?
Investors looking for growth in their portfolio may want to consider the prospects of a company before buying its shares. Although value investors would argue that it’s the intrinsic value relative to the price that matter the most, a more compelling investment thesis would be high growth potential at a cheap price. However, with an extremely negative double-digit change in profit expected over the next couple of years, near-term growth is certainly not a driver of a buy decision. It seems like high uncertainty is on the cards for Gladstone Commercial, at least in the near future.
What this means for you:
Are you a shareholder? Although GOOD is currently undervalued, the negative outlook does bring on some uncertainty, which equates to higher risk. Consider whether you want to increase your portfolio exposure to GOOD, or whether diversifying into another stock may be a better move for your total risk and return.
Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on GOOD for a while, but hesitant on making the leap, I recommend you dig deeper into the stock. Given its current undervaluation, now is a great time to make a decision. But keep in mind the risks that come with negative growth prospects in the future.
