What is China Resources Cement Holdings worth?

Great news for investors – China Resources Cement Holdings is still trading at a fairly cheap price. My valuation model shows that the intrinsic value for the stock is HK$15.08, but it is currently trading at HK$9.29 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. Although, there may be another chance to buy again in the future. This is because China Resources Cement Holdings’s beta (a measure of share price volatility) is high, meaning its price movements will be exaggerated relative to the rest of the market. If the market is bearish, the company’s shares will likely fall by more than the rest of the market, providing a prime buying opportunity.

Can we expect growth from China Resources Cement Holdings?

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Since 1313 is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to accumulate more of your holdings in the stock. With a positive outlook on the horizon, it seems like this growth has not yet been fully factored into the share price.
