Poligrafica S. Faustino S.p.A. (BIT:PSF), which is in the commercial services business, and is based in Italy, led the BIT gainers with a relatively large price hike in the past couple of weeks. As a small cap stock, hardly covered by any analysts, 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 Poligrafica S. Faustino’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if the opportunity still exists.
What is Poligrafica S. Faustino worth?
According to my valuation model, Poligrafica S. Faustino seems to be fairly priced at around 14% below my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Poligrafica S. Faustino today, you’d be paying a reasonable price for it. And if you believe the company’s true value is €9.05, then there’s not much of an upside to gain from mispricing. In addition to this, Poligrafica S. Faustino has a low beta, which suggests its share price is less volatile than the wider market.
What does the future of Poligrafica S. Faustino look like?
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. 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 Poligrafica S. Faustino, at least in the near future.
What this means for you:
Are you a shareholder? PSF seems fairly priced right now, but given the uncertainty from negative returns in the future, this could be the right time to reduce the risk in your portfolio. Is your current exposure to the stock beneficial for your total portfolio? And is the opportunity cost of holding a negative-outlook stock too high? Before you make a decision on the stock, take a look at whether its fundamentals have changed.
Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on PSF for a while, now may not be the most advantageous time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value. The stock appears to be trading at fair value, which means there’s less benefit from mispricing. In addition to this, the negative growth outlook increases the risk of holding the stock. However, there are also other important factors we haven’t considered today, which can help gel your views on PSF should the price fluctuate below its true value.
