Bossard Holding AG (VTX:BOSN), which is in the trade distributors business, and is based in Switzerland, received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the SWX over the last few months, increasing to CHF167.1 at one point, and dropping to the lows of CHF126.1. 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 Bossard Holding’s current trading price of CHF131.6 reflective of the actual value of the small-cap? Or is it currently undervalued, providing us with the opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at Bossard Holding’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.
What is Bossard Holding worth?
The stock is currently trading at CHF132 on the share market, which means it is overvalued by 41.59% compared to my intrinsic value of CHF92.95. This means that the buying opportunity has probably disappeared for now. But, is there another opportunity to buy low in the future? Since Bossard Holding’s share price is quite volatile, this could mean it can sink lower (or rise even further) in the future, giving us another chance to invest. 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.
Can we expect growth from Bossard Holding?
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 negative profit growth of -4.4% expected over the next couple of years, near-term growth certainly doesn’t appear to be a driver for a buy decision for Bossard Holding. This certainty tips the risk-return scale towards higher risk.
What this means for you:
Are you a shareholder? If you believe BOSN is currently trading above its value, selling high and buying it back up again when its price falls towards its real value can be profitable. Given the risk from a negative growth outlook, this could be the right time to reduce your total portfolio risk. But before you make this decision, take a look at whether its fundamentals have changed.
Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping tabs on BOSN for some time, now may not be the best time to enter into the stock. Its price has risen beyond its true value, on top of a negative future outlook. However, there are also other important factors which we haven’t considered today, such as the track record of its management. Should the price fall in the future, will you be well-informed enough to buy?
