PORR AG (VIE:POS), which is in the construction business, and is based in Austria, saw a double-digit share price rise of over 10% in the past couple of months on the WBAG. With many analysts covering the stock, we may expect any price-sensitive announcements have already been factored into the stock’s share price. But what if there is still an opportunity to buy? Today I will analyse the most recent data on PORR’s outlook and valuation to see if the opportunity still exists.
What’s the opportunity in PORR?Great news for investors – PORR is still trading at a fairly cheap price. My valuation model shows that the intrinsic value for the stock is €33.92, which is above what the market is valuing the company at the moment. This indicates a potential opportunity to buy low. What’s more interesting is that, PORR’s share price is theoretically quite stable, which could mean two things: firstly, it may take the share price a while to move to its intrinsic value, and secondly, there may be less chances to buy low in the future once it reaches that value. This is because the stock is less volatile than the wider market given its low beta.
Can we expect growth from PORR?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. PORR’s earnings over the next few years are expected to increase by 29%, 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 POS is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase your holdings in the stock. With an optimistic 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 capital structure to consider, which could explain the current undervaluation.
Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on POS for a while, now might be the time to enter the stock. Its prosperous future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy POS. But before you make any investment decisions, consider other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to make a well-informed buy.
