Rexel S.A. (EPA:RXL), which is in the trade distributors business, and is based in France, saw a double-digit share price rise of over 10% in the past couple of months on the ENXTPA. With many analysts covering the mid-cap stock, we may expect any price-sensitive announcements have already been factored into the stock’s share price. However, what if the stock is still a bargain? Let’s take a look at Rexel’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if the opportunity still exists.
What is Rexel worth?
Great news for investors – Rexel is still trading at a fairly cheap price. My valuation model shows that the intrinsic value for the stock is €15.85, which is above what the market is valuing the company at the moment. This indicates a potential opportunity to buy low. However, given that Rexel’s share is fairly volatile (i.e. its price movements are magnified relative to the rest of the market) this could mean the price can sink lower, giving us another chance to buy in the future. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for share price volatility.
Can we expect growth from Rexel?
Investors looking for growth in their portfolio may want to consider the prospects of a company before buying its shares. 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. Rexel’s earnings over the next few years are expected to increase by 66%, 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? Since RXL is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to accumulate more of 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 RXL for a while, now might be the time to enter the stock. Its prosperous future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy RXL. 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.
