Aena S.M.E., S.A. (BME:AENA) received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the BME over the last few months, increasing to €150 at one point, and dropping to the lows of €129. 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 Aena S.M.E's current trading price of €135 reflective of the actual value of the large-cap? Or is it currently undervalued, providing us with the opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at Aena S.M.E’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.
What's the opportunity in Aena S.M.E?
According to my valuation model, Aena S.M.E seems to be fairly priced at around 2.7% below my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Aena S.M.E today, you’d be paying a reasonable price for it. And if you believe the company’s true value is €138.74, then there’s not much of an upside to gain from mispricing. Is there another opportunity to buy low in the future? Since Aena S.M.E’s share price is quite volatile, we could potentially see it sink lower (or rise higher) in the future, giving us another chance to buy. 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.
What kind of growth will Aena S.M.E generate?
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. In Aena S.M.E's case, its revenues over the next couple of years are expected to double, indicating an incredibly optimistic future ahead. If expense does not increase by the same rate, or higher, this top line growth should lead to stronger cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.
What this means for you:
Are you a shareholder? It seems like the market has already priced in AENA’s positive outlook, with shares trading around its fair value. However, there are also other important factors which we haven’t considered today, such as the track record of its management team. Have these factors changed since the last time you looked at the stock? Will you have enough conviction to buy should the price fluctuates below the true value?
Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping tabs on AENA, now may not be the most optimal time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value. However, the positive outlook is encouraging for the company, which means it’s worth further examining other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
So if you'd like to dive deeper into this stock, it's crucial to consider any risks it's facing. For example - Aena S.M.E has 1 warning sign we think you should be aware of.
