Strabag SE (VIE:STR), might not be a large cap stock, but it received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the WBAG over the last few months, increasing to €41.10 at one point, and dropping to the lows of €35.10. Some share price movements can give investors a better opportunity to enter into the stock, and potentially buy at a lower price. A question to answer is whether Strabag's current trading price of €35.10 reflective of the actual value of the mid-cap? Or is it currently undervalued, providing us with the opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at Strabag’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.

What's the opportunity in Strabag?

Good news, investors! Strabag is still a bargain right now. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is €57.47, 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, Strabag’s share price is quite volatile, which gives us more chances to buy since the share price could sink lower (or rise higher) in the future. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for how much the stock moves relative to the rest of the market.

Future outlook is an important aspect when you’re looking at buying a stock, especially if you are an investor looking for growth in your portfolio. 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 negative profit growth of -20% expected over the next couple of years, near-term growth certainly doesn’t appear to be a driver for a buy decision for Strabag. This certainty tips the risk-return scale towards higher risk.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Although STR is currently undervalued, the negative outlook does bring on some uncertainty, which equates to higher risk. I recommend you think about whether you want to increase your portfolio exposure to STR, or whether diversifying into another stock may be a better move for your total risk and return.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on STR for a while, but hesitant on making the leap, I recommend you research further into the stock. Given its current undervaluation, now is a great time to make a decision. But keep in mind the risks that come with negative growth prospects in the future.
