Nexans S.A. (EPA:NEX), might not be a large cap stock, but it saw a double-digit share price rise of over 10% in the past couple of months on the ENXTPA. With many analysts covering the mid-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? Let’s examine Nexans’s valuation and outlook in more detail to determine if there’s still a bargain opportunity.

What is Nexans worth?

Good news, investors! Nexans is still a bargain right now. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is €129.80, but it is currently trading at €85.30 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. However, given that Nexans’s share is fairly volatile (i.e. its price movements are magnified relative to the rest of the market) this could mean the price can sink lower, giving us another chance to buy in the future. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for share price volatility.

Can we expect growth from Nexans?

ENXTPA:NEX Earnings and Revenue Growth April 22nd 2022

Future outlook is an important aspect when you’re looking at buying a stock, especially if you are an investor looking for growth in your portfolio. 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. With profit expected to grow by 58% over the next couple of years, the future seems bright for Nexans. It looks like higher cash flow is on the cards for the stock, which should feed into a higher share valuation.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Since NEX is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase your holdings in the stock. With an optimistic outlook on the horizon, it seems like this growth has not yet been fully factored into the share price. 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 NEX for a while, now might be the time to make a leap. Its buoyant future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy NEX. But before you make any investment decisions, consider other factors such as the track record of its management team, in order to make a well-informed investment decision.

So while earnings quality is important, it's equally important to consider the risks facing Nexans at this point in time. You'd be interested to know, that we found 1 warning sign for Nexans and you'll want to know about it.
