Vonovia SE (ETR:VNA) led the XTRA gainers with a relatively large price hike in the past couple of weeks. With many analysts covering the large-cap stock, we may expect any price-sensitive announcements have already been factored into the stock’s share price. However, could the stock still be trading at a relatively cheap price? Today I will analyse the most recent data on Vonovia’s outlook and valuation to see if the opportunity still exists.

What Is Vonovia Worth?

According to my valuation model, Vonovia seems to be fairly priced at around 12.65% above my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Vonovia today, you’d be paying a relatively reasonable price for it. And if you believe that the stock is really worth €18.80, there’s only an insignificant downside when the price falls to its real value. In addition to this, Vonovia has a low beta, which suggests its share price is less volatile than the wider market.

What does the future of Vonovia look like?

XTRA:VNA Earnings and Revenue Growth July 28th 2023

Investors looking for growth in their portfolio may want to consider the prospects of a company before buying its shares. Although value investors would argue that it’s the intrinsic value relative to the price that matter the most, a more compelling investment thesis would be high growth potential at a cheap price. Though in the case of Vonovia, it is expected to deliver a highly negative earnings growth in the upcoming, which doesn’t help build up its investment thesis. It appears that risk of future uncertainty is high, at least in the near term.

What This Means For You

Are you a shareholder? Currently, VNA appears to be trading around its fair value, but given the uncertainty from negative returns in the future, this could be the right time to de-risk your portfolio. Is your current exposure to the stock optimal for your total portfolio? And is the opportunity cost of holding a negative-outlook stock too high? Before you make a decision on the stock, take a look at whether its fundamentals have changed.
