Is ComfortDelGro still cheap?

The stock seems fairly valued at the moment according to my valuation model. It’s trading around 0.47% above my intrinsic value, which means if you buy ComfortDelGro today, you’d be paying a relatively fair price for it. And if you believe the company’s true value is SGD1.58, there’s only an insignificant downside when the price falls to its real value. In addition to this, ComfortDelGro has a low beta, which suggests its share price is less volatile than the wider market.

Investors looking for growth in their portfolio may want to consider the prospects of a company before buying its shares. Buying a great company with a robust outlook at a cheap price is always a good investment, so let’s also take a look at the company’s future expectations. Though in the case of ComfortDelGro, it is expected to deliver a relatively unexciting earnings growth of 6.4%, which doesn’t help build up its investment thesis. Growth doesn’t appear to be a main reason for a buy decision for the company, at least in the near term.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? C52’s future growth appears to have been factored into the current share price, with shares trading around its fair value. However, there are also other important factors which we haven’t considered today, such as the financial strength of the company. Have these factors changed since the last time you looked at the stock? Will you have enough confidence to invest in the company should the price drop below its fair value?

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping tabs on C52, now may not be the most advantageous time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value. However, the positive outlook means it’s worth further examining other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
