Is LMAT still cheap?

The stock is currently trading at $35.11 on the share market, which means it is overvalued by 68% compared to my intrinsic value of $20.87. This means that the buying opportunity has probably disappeared for now. In addition to this, it seems like LMAT’s share price is quite stable, which could mean two things: firstly, it may take the share price a while to fall back down to an attractive buying range, and secondly, there may be less chances to buy low in the future once it reaches that value. This is because LMAT’s stock is less volatile than the wider market given its low beta.

Can we expect growth from LMAT?

It looks like higher cash flows is on the cards for the stock, which should feed into a higher share valuation.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? LMAT’s optimistic future growth appears to have been factored into the current share price, with shares trading above its fair value. At this current price, shareholders may be asking a different question – should I sell? If you believe LMAT should trade below its current price, selling high and buying it back up again when its price falls towards its real value can be profitable. But before you make this decision, take a look at whether its fundamentals have changed.
