3 Stocks Trading Cheaply

·3 min read

- By Alberto Abaterusso

If you want to have more chances to come across bargains, one way is to screen the market for stocks that are likely trading at a discount to their intrinsic value resulting from the projected free cash flow (FCF) valuation model.

Unlike the discounted cash flow or discounted earnings valuation models, the projected FCF model can be applied to assess businesses whose history of revenue and earnings is irregular and may encompass losses in some quarters. The projected FCF uses normalized free cash flow and book value.


The following stocks look undervalued according to the projected FCF model and also hold positive recommendation ratings from Wall Street sell side analysts.

Arbor Realty Trust Inc

The first stock that makes the cut is Arbor Realty Trust Inc (NYSE:ABR), a Uniondale, New York-based real estate investment trust company.

The stock traded at a price of $11.06 per share at close on Wednesday, which represents a discount of nearly 25% to the projected free cash flow of $14.72.

The share price has fallen by 15.7% over the past year for a market capitalization of $1.24 billion and a 52-week range of $3.54 to $15.77.

Bluerock Residential Growth REIT Inc

The second stock that qualifies is Bluerock Residential Growth REIT Inc (BRG), a New York-based real estate investment trust company.

The stock traded at a price of $7.07 per share at close on Wednesday, which represents a nearly 85% discount to the projected free cash flow of $46.04.

The share price has declined 40% over the past year, which determined a market capitalization of $174.60 million and a 52-week range of $3.79 to $12.49.
