Today we’re going to take a look at the well-established SBA Communications Corporation (NASDAQ:SBAC). The company’s stock saw a double-digit share price rise of over 10% in the past couple of months on the NasdaqGS. With many analysts covering the large-cap stock, we may expect any price-sensitive announcements have already been factored into the stock’s share price. But what if there is still an opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at SBA Communications’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if the opportunity still exists. Check out our latest analysis for SBA Communications

Is SBA Communications still cheap?

The stock seems fairly valued at the moment according to my valuation model. It’s trading around 1.78% below my intrinsic value, which means if you buy SBA Communications today, you’d be paying a reasonable price for it. And if you believe the company’s true value is $174.68, then there isn’t much room for the share price grow beyond what it’s currently trading. In addition to this, it seems like SBA Communications’s share price is quite stable, which could mean there may be less chances to buy low in the future now that it’s fairly valued. This is because the stock is less volatile than the wider market given its low beta.

Can we expect growth from SBA Communications?
