Corbion N.V. (AMS:CRBN), which is in the chemicals business, and is based in Netherlands, received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the ENXTAM over the last few months, increasing to €29.96 at one point, and dropping to the lows of €24.84. Some share price movements can give investors a better opportunity to enter into the stock, and potentially buy at a lower price. A question to answer is whether Corbion's current trading price of €27.14 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 Corbion’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.
What's the opportunity in Corbion?
According to my valuation model, Corbion seems to be fairly priced at around 13% below my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Corbion today, you’d be paying a fair price for it. And if you believe the company’s true value is €31.24, then there isn’t much room for the share price grow beyond what it’s currently trading. What's more, Corbion’s share price may be more stable over time (relative to the market), as indicated by its low beta.
What does the future of Corbion 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. 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. Corbion’s earnings over the next few years are expected to increase by 82%, indicating a highly optimistic future ahead. This should lead to more robust cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.
What this means for you:
Are you a shareholder? It seems like the market has already priced in CRBN’s positive outlook, with shares trading around its fair value. However, there are also other important factors which we haven’t considered today, such as the financial strength of the company. Have these factors changed since the last time you looked at the stock? Will you have enough conviction to buy should the price fluctuates below the true value?
Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping tabs on CRBN, now may not be the most optimal time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value. However, the positive outlook is encouraging for the company, which means it’s worth diving deeper into other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
