Is Badger Daylighting still cheap?

According to my valuation model, the stock is currently overvalued by about 41%, trading at CA$31.55 compared to my intrinsic value of CA$22.36. This means that the buying opportunity has probably disappeared for now. Another thing to keep in mind is that Badger Daylighting’s share price is quite stable relative to the market, as indicated by its low beta. This means that if you believe the current share price should move towards its intrinsic value over time, a low beta could suggest it is not likely to reach that level anytime soon, and once it’s there, it may be hard to fall back down into an attractive buying range again.
