What’s the opportunity in Triton International?

Good news, investors! Triton International is still a bargain right now. I’ve used the price-to-earnings ratio in this instance because there’s not enough visibility to forecast its cash flows. The stock’s ratio of 6.82x is currently well-below the industry average of 16.55x, meaning that it is trading at a cheaper price relative to its peers. Although, there may be another chance to buy again in the future. This is because Triton International’s beta (a measure of share price volatility) is high, meaning its price movements will be exaggerated relative to the rest of the market. If the market is bearish, the company’s shares will likely fall by more than the rest of the market, providing a prime buying opportunity.

What kind of growth will Triton International 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. Though in the case of Triton International, it is expected to deliver a relatively unexciting earnings growth of 0.1%, which doesn’t help build up its investment thesis. Growth doesn’t appear to be a main reason for a buy decision for Triton International, at least in the near term.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Even though growth is relatively muted, since TRTN is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase your holdings in the stock. 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 TRTN for a while, now might be the time to enter the stock. Its future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy TRTN. But before you make any investment decisions, consider other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to make a well-informed buy.
