At $13.26, Is GameStop Corp (NYSE:GME) A Buy?

Gavin Beck

GameStop Corp (NYSE:GME), a specialty retail company based in United States, saw significant share price volatility over the past couple of months on the NYSE, rising to the highs of $16.41 and falling to the lows of $12.62. This high level of volatility gives investors the opportunity to enter into the stock, and potentially buy at an artificially low price. A question to answer is whether GameStop’s current trading price of $13.26 reflective of the actual value of the small-cap? Or is it currently undervalued, providing us with the opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at GameStop’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change. See our latest analysis for GameStop

Is GameStop still cheap?

Good news, investors! GameStop is still a bargain right now. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $28.52, which is above what the market is valuing the company at the moment. This indicates a potential opportunity to buy low. Although, there may be another chance to buy again in the future. This is because GameStop’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 does the future of GameStop look like?

NYSE:GME Future Profit May 15th 18

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. 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. With profit expected to more than double over the next couple of years, the future seems bright for GameStop. It looks like higher cash flows 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 GME is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase your holdings in the stock. With a positive 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 GME for a while, now might be the time to make a leap. Its prosperous future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy GME. 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.
