Is It Too Late To Consider Buying G5 Entertainment AB (publ) (STO:G5EN)?

G5 Entertainment AB (publ) (STO:G5EN), might not be a large cap stock, but it received a lot of attention from a substantial price increase on the OM over the last few months. As a small cap stock, which tends to lack high analyst coverage, there is generally more of an opportunity for mispricing as there is less activity to push the stock closer to fair value. Is there still an opportunity here to buy? Let’s take a look at G5 Entertainment’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if the opportunity still exists.

What is G5 Entertainment worth?

Good news, investors! G5 Entertainment is still a bargain right now according to my price multiple model, which compares the company’s price-to-earnings ratio to the industry average. In this instance, I’ve used the price-to-earnings (PE) ratio given that there is not enough information to reliably forecast the stock’s cash flows. I find that G5 Entertainment’s ratio of 50.93x is below its peer average of 79.07x, which indicates the stock is trading at a lower price compared to the Entertainment industry. However, given that G5 Entertainment’s share is fairly volatile (i.e. its price movements are magnified relative to the rest of the market) this could mean the price can sink lower, giving us another chance to buy in the future. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for share price volatility.

Can we expect growth from G5 Entertainment?

OM:G5EN Earnings and Revenue Growth August 24th 2020

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. G5 Entertainment’s earnings over the next few years are expected to increase by 95%, indicating a highly optimistic future ahead. This should lead to more robust cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Since G5EN is currently trading below the industry PE ratio, it may be a great time to increase your holdings in the stock. With a positive profit outlook on the horizon, it seems like this growth has not yet been fully factored into the share price. However, there are also other factors such as financial health to consider, which could explain the current price multiple.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on G5EN for a while, now might be the time to enter the stock. Its buoyant future profit outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy G5EN. But before you make any investment decisions, consider other factors such as the track record of its management team, in order to make a well-informed assessment.
