Francesca’s Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ:FRAN), a specialty retail company based in United States, led the NasdaqGS gainers with a relatively large price hike in the past couple of weeks. With many analysts covering the 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? Today I will analyse the most recent data on Francesca’s Holdings’s outlook and valuation to see if the opportunity still exists. See our latest analysis for Francesca’s Holdings

What’s the opportunity in Francesca’s Holdings?

Great news for investors – Francesca’s Holdings is still trading at a fairly cheap price. My valuation model shows that the intrinsic value for the stock is $11.57, which is above what the market is valuing the company at the moment. This indicates a potential opportunity to buy low. Francesca’s Holdings’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 kind of growth will Francesca’s Holdings generate?
