Should You Buy NuStar GP Holdings LLC (NSH)?

Jenifer Prater

NuStar GP Holdings LLC (NYSE:NSH), an energy company based in United States, saw significant share price volatility over the past couple of months on the NYSE, rising to the highs of $22.35 and falling to the lows of $13.95. 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 NSH’s current trading price of $14.85 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 NSH’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change. View our latest analysis for NuStar GP Holdings

What is NSH worth?

Great news for investors – NSH is still trading at a fairly cheap price. My valuation model shows that the intrinsic value for the stock is $20.88, which is above what the market is valuing the company at the moment. This indicates a potential opportunity to buy low. What’s more interesting is that, NSH’s share price is quite volatile, which gives us more chances to buy since the share price could sink lower (or rise higher) in the future. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for how much NSH moves relative to the rest of the market.

What kind of growth will NSH generate?

NYSE:NSH Future Profit Dec 6th 17

Future outlook is an important aspect when you’re looking at buying a stock, especially if you are an investor looking for growth in your portfolio. 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 NSH future expectations. Though in the case of NSH, it is expected to deliver a highly negative earnings growth in the next few years, which doesn’t help build up its investment thesis. It appears that risk of future uncertainty is high, at least in the near term.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Although NSH is currently undervalued, the negative outlook does bring on some uncertainty, which equates to higher risk. I recommend you think about whether you want to increase your portfolio exposure to NSH, or whether diversifying into another stock may be a better move for your total risk and return.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping tabs on NSH for some time, but hesitant on making the leap, I recommend you research further into the stock. Given its current undervaluation, now is a great time to make a decision. But keep in mind the risks that come with negative growth prospects in the future.
