Iren SpA (BIT:IRE), is not the largest company out there, but it saw significant share price movement during recent months on the BIT, rising to highs of €2.88 and falling to the lows of €2.50. 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 Iren's current trading price of €2.69 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 Iren’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 Iren?

According to my valuation model, Iren seems to be fairly priced at around 6.57% above my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Iren today, you’d be paying a relatively reasonable price for it. And if you believe the company’s true value is €2.53, there’s only an insignificant downside when the price falls to its real value. What's more, Iren’s share price may be more stable over time (relative to the market), as indicated by its low beta.

What does the future of Iren look like?

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. However, with a negative profit growth of -2.0% expected over the next couple of years, near-term growth certainly doesn’t appear to be a driver for a buy decision for Iren. This certainty tips the risk-return scale towards higher risk.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? IRE seems fairly priced right now, 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 beneficial 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.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping tabs on IRE for a while, now may not be the most optimal time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value. The stock appears to be trading at fair value, which means there’s less benefit from mispricing. In addition to this, the negative growth outlook increases the risk of holding the stock. However, there are also other important factors we haven’t considered today, which can help gel your views on IRE should the price fluctuate below its true value.

So if you'd like to dive deeper into this stock, it's crucial to consider any risks it's facing. While conducting our analysis, we found that Iren has 2 warning signs and it would be unwise to ignore them.
