Kemper Corporation (NYSE:KMPR), which is in the insurance business, and is based in United States, saw a decent share price growth in the teens level on the NYSE over the last few months. 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. But what if there is still an opportunity to buy? Today I will analyse the most recent data on Kemper’s outlook and valuation to see if the opportunity still exists.
What’s the opportunity in Kemper?
Good news, investors! Kemper is still a bargain right now. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $106.19, but it is currently trading at US$73.65 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. Although, there may be another chance to buy again in the future. This is because Kemper’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.
Can we expect growth from Kemper?
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. 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. However, with a relatively muted profit growth of 7.2% expected over the next couple of years, growth doesn’t seem like a key driver for a buy decision for Kemper, at least in the short term.
What this means for you:
Are you a shareholder? Even though growth is relatively muted, since KMPR 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 KMPR for a while, now might be the time to make a leap. Its future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy KMPR. 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 buy.
