What’s the opportunity in Olin?

Great news for investors – Olin is still trading at a fairly cheap price. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $40.96, but it is currently trading at US$22.97 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 Olin’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 Olin?

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. With profit expected to grow by 30% over the next couple of years, the future seems bright for Olin. 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? Since OLN is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase your holdings in the stock. With an optimistic outlook on the horizon, it seems like this growth has not yet been fully factored into the share price. 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 OLN for a while, now might be the time to enter the stock. Its buoyant future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy OLN. 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.
