Should You Buy Windstream Holdings Inc (WIN) Now?

Brad Riley

Windstream Holdings Inc (NASDAQ:WIN), a telecommunication services company based in United States, received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the NasdaqGS in the over the last few months, increasing to $4.21 at one point, and dropping to the lows of $1.89. 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 WIN's current trading price of $1.95 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 WIN’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change. See our latest analysis for WIN

What's the opportunity in WIN?

Great news for investors – WIN is still trading at a fairly cheap price. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $35.39 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, WIN’s share price is quite stable, which could mean two things: firstly, it may take the share price a while to move to its intrinsic value, and secondly, there may be less chances to buy low in the future once it reaches that value. This is because WIN’s stock is less volatile than the wider market given its low beta.

Can we expect growth from WIN?

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Since WIN 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.
