What’s the opportunity in Mediobanca Banca di Credito Finanziario?

Great news for investors – Mediobanca Banca di Credito Finanziario is still trading at a fairly cheap price. My valuation model shows that the intrinsic value for the stock is €8.51, but it is currently trading at €5.18 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. However, given that Mediobanca Banca di Credito Finanziario’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.

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 a relatively muted profit growth of 4.6% expected over the next couple of years, growth doesn’t seem like a key driver for a buy decision for Mediobanca Banca di Credito Finanziario, at least in the short term.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Even though growth is relatively muted, since MB is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase your holdings in the stock. However, there are also other factors such as capital structure to consider, which could explain the current undervaluation.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on MB for a while, now might be the time to make a leap. Its future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy MB. 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 investment decision.
