While Rieter Holding AG (VTX:RIEN) might not be the most widely known stock at the moment, it saw a decent share price growth in the teens level on the SWX over the last few months.

Today I will analyse the most recent data on Rieter Holding’s outlook and valuation to see if the opportunity still exists.

What is Rieter Holding worth?

The share price seems sensible at the moment according to my price multiple model, where I compare the company's price-to-earnings ratio to the industry average. I’ve used the price-to-earnings ratio in this instance because there’s not enough visibility to forecast its cash flows. The stock’s ratio of 22.51x is currently trading slightly above its industry peers’ ratio of 21.71x, which means if you buy Rieter Holding today, you’d be paying a relatively reasonable price for it. And if you believe Rieter Holding should be trading in this range, then there isn’t really any room for the share price grow beyond the levels of other industry peers over the long-term. Although, there may be an opportunity to buy in the future. This is because Rieter Holding’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.
