Neodecortech S.p.A. (BIT:NDT), might not be a large cap stock, but it received a lot of attention from a substantial price increase on the BIT over the last few months. As a stock with high coverage by analysts, you could assume any recent changes in the company’s outlook is already priced into the stock. However, could the stock still be trading at a relatively cheap price? Today I will analyse the most recent data on Neodecortech’s outlook and valuation to see if the opportunity still exists.
What's the opportunity in Neodecortech?
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. In this instance, I’ve used the price-to-earnings (PE) ratio given that there is not enough information to reliably forecast the stock’s cash flows. I find that Neodecortech’s ratio of 11.57x is trading slightly below its industry peers’ ratio of 13.23x, which means if you buy Neodecortech today, you’d be paying a reasonable price for it. And if you believe that Neodecortech should be trading at this level in the long run, then there’s not much of an upside to gain over and above other industry peers. In addition to this, it seems like Neodecortech’s share price is quite stable, which could mean there may be less chances to buy low in the future now that it’s trading around the price multiples of other industry peers. This is because the stock is less volatile than the wider market given its low beta.
What does the future of Neodecortech look like?
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. Neodecortech's earnings over the next few years are expected to increase by 79%, indicating a highly optimistic future ahead. This should lead to more robust cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.
What this means for you:
Are you a shareholder? NDT’s optimistic future growth appears to have been factored into the current share price, with shares trading around industry price multiples. 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 NDT? Will you have enough conviction to buy should the price fluctuate below the industry PE ratio?
Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping tabs on NDT, now may not be the most optimal time to buy, given it is trading around industry price multiples. However, the positive outlook is encouraging for NDT, 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.
