At $19.54, Is Urstadt Biddle Properties Inc (NYSE:UBA) A Buy?

Cole Patterson

Urstadt Biddle Properties Inc (NYSE:UBA), a reits company based in United States, saw a double-digit share price rise of over 10% in the past couple of months on the NYSE. As a small cap stock, which tends to lack high analyst coverage, there is generally more of an opportunity for mispricing as there is less activity to push the stock closer to fair value. Is there still an opportunity here to buy? Let’s examine Urstadt Biddle Properties’s valuation and outlook in more detail to determine if there’s still a bargain opportunity. Check out our latest analysis for Urstadt Biddle Properties

What is Urstadt Biddle Properties worth?

Good news, investors! Urstadt Biddle Properties is still a bargain right now. My valuation model shows that the intrinsic value for the stock is $25.53, but it is currently trading at US$19.54 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. Urstadt Biddle Properties’s share price also seems relatively stable compared to the rest of the market, as indicated by its low beta. If you believe the share price should eventually reach its true value, a low beta could suggest it is unlikely to rapidly do so anytime soon, and once it’s there, it may be hard to fall back down into an attractive buying range.

What does the future of Urstadt Biddle Properties look like?

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. However, with an extremely negative double-digit change in profit expected next year, near-term growth is certainly not a driver of a buy decision. It seems like high uncertainty is on the cards for Urstadt Biddle Properties, at least in the near future.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Although UBA is currently undervalued, the negative outlook does bring on some uncertainty, which equates to higher risk. I recommend you think about whether you want to increase your portfolio exposure to UBA, or whether diversifying into another stock may be a better move for your total risk and return.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on UBA for a while, but hesitant on making the leap, I recommend you dig deeper into the stock. Given its current undervaluation, now is a great time to make a decision. But keep in mind the risks that come with negative growth prospects in the future.
