Bossard Holding AG (VTX:BOSN), which is in the trade distributors business, and is based in Switzerland, received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the SWX over the last few months, increasing to CHF154.5 at one point, and dropping to the lows of CHF126.1. Some share price movements can give investors a better opportunity to enter into the stock, and potentially buy at a lower price. A question to answer is whether Bossard Holding's current trading price of CHF136.2 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 Bossard Holding’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.
Is Bossard Holding still cheap?
Good news, investors! Bossard Holding is still a bargain right now. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is CHF186.16, but it is currently trading at CHF136 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. However, given that Bossard Holding’s share is fairly volatile (i.e. its price movements are magnified relative to the rest of the market) this could mean the price can sink lower, giving us another chance to buy in the future. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for share price volatility.
What does the future of Bossard Holding look like?
Investors looking for growth in their portfolio may want to consider the prospects of a company before buying its shares. 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 the company's future expectations. Though in the case of Bossard Holding, it is expected to deliver a negative earnings growth of -2.0%, 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 BOSN 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 BOSN, 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 an eye on BOSN for a while, but hesitant on making the leap, I recommend you dig deeper 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.
