While Tata Chemicals Limited (NSE:TATACHEM) might not be the most widely known stock at the moment, it received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the NSEI over the last few months, increasing to ₹1,094 at one point, and dropping to the lows of ₹842. 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 Tata Chemicals' current trading price of ₹919 reflective of the actual value of the mid-cap? Or is it currently undervalued, providing us with the opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at Tata Chemicals’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.

What is Tata Chemicals worth?

The stock seems fairly valued at the moment according to my valuation model. It’s trading around 12.19% above my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Tata Chemicals today, you’d be paying a relatively reasonable price for it. And if you believe the company’s true value is ₹819.38, then there isn’t really any room for the share price grow beyond what it’s currently trading. Is there another opportunity to buy low in the future? Since Tata Chemicals’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.

Can we expect growth from Tata Chemicals?

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 more than double over the next couple of years, the future seems bright for Tata Chemicals. 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? TATACHEM’s optimistic future growth appears to have been factored into the current share price, 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 an eye on TATACHEM, now may not be the most optimal time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value. However, the optimistic prospect 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.
