American Outdoor Brands And Other Great Cheap Stocks

Shawn Clark

A stock that you can buy at a price below what it is worth is considered undervalued. This is the case for American Outdoor Brands and Tarena International. There’s a few ways you can measure the value of a company – you can forecast how much money it will make in the future and base your valuation off of this, or you can look around at its peers of similar size and industry to roughly estimate what it should be worth. Below, I’ve created a list of companies that compare favourably in all criteria based on their most recent financial data, making them potentially good investments.

American Outdoor Brands Corporation designs, manufactures, and sells firearms worldwide. Formed in 1852, and currently run by P. Debney, the company provides employment to 2,192 people and with the stock’s market cap sitting at USD $598.14M, it comes under the small-cap stocks category.

AOBC’s stock is now trading at -24% under its intrinsic value of $14.88, at a price tag of US$11.32, according to my discounted cash flow model. This mismatch signals an opportunity to buy AOBC shares at a discount. Also, AOBC’s PE ratio is trading at around 15.3x compared to its Leisure peer level of, 23.16x implying that relative to other stocks in the industry, you can buy AOBC for a cheaper price. AOBC also has a healthy balance sheet, as near-term assets sufficiently cover liabilities in the near future as well as in the long run.
