Should You Buy Global Self Storage Inc (NASDAQ:SELF)?

Ben Rossbaum

Global Self Storage Inc (NASDAQ:SELF), a reits company based in United States, received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the NasdaqCM in the over the last few months, increasing to $4.65 at one point, and dropping to the lows of $4.18. This high level of volatility gives investors the opportunity to enter into the stock, and potentially buy at an artificially low price. A question to answer is whether Global Self Storage’s current trading price of $4.32 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 Global Self Storage’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change. Check out our latest analysis for Global Self Storage

What is Global Self Storage worth?

Good news, investors! Global Self Storage is still a bargain right now. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $6.43, but it is currently trading at US$4.32 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. Global Self Storage’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 does the future of Global Self Storage look like?

NasdaqCM:SELF Future Profit Mar 29th 18

Investors looking for growth in their portfolio may want to consider the prospects of a company before buying its shares. Although value investors would argue that it’s the intrinsic value relative to the price that matter the most, a more compelling investment thesis would be high growth potential at a cheap price. Global Self Storage’s revenue growth are expected to be in the teens in the upcoming year, indicating a solid future ahead. Unless expenses grow at the same level, or higher, this top-line growth should lead to robust cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Since SELF is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to accumulate more of your holdings in the stock. With an optimistic 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 capital structure to consider, which could explain the current undervaluation.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on SELF for a while, now might be the time to make a leap. Its buoyant future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy SELF. 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.
