While Atlas Engineered Products Ltd. (CVE:AEP) might not be the most widely known stock at the moment, it saw a double-digit share price rise of over 10% in the past couple of months on the TSXV. Less-covered, small caps sees more of an opportunity for mispricing due to the lack of information available to the public, which can be a good thing. So, could the stock still be trading at a low price relative to its actual value? Today I will analyse the most recent data on Atlas Engineered Products’s outlook and valuation to see if the opportunity still exists.
Is Atlas Engineered Products Still Cheap?
Good news, investors! Atlas Engineered Products is still a bargain right now. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is CA$1.63, which is above what the market is valuing the company at the moment. This indicates a potential opportunity to buy low. Although, there may be another chance to buy again in the future. This is because Atlas Engineered Products’s beta (a measure of share price volatility) is high, meaning its price movements will be exaggerated relative to the rest of the market. If the market is bearish, the company's shares will likely fall by more than the rest of the market, providing a prime buying opportunity.
Can we expect growth from Atlas Engineered Products?
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 2.2% expected over the next couple of years, growth doesn’t seem like a key driver for a buy decision for Atlas Engineered Products, at least in the short term.
What This Means For You
Are you a shareholder? Even though growth is relatively muted, since AEP is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase your holdings in the stock. However, there are also other factors such as financial health to consider, which could explain the current undervaluation.
Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on AEP 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 AEP. 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 investment decision.
