Fiera Milano SpA (BIT:FM), which is in the commercial services business, and is based in Italy, received a lot of attention from a substantial price increase on the BIT over the last few months. As a small cap stock, which tends to lack high analyst coverage, there is generally more of an opportunity for mispricing as there is less activity to push the stock closer to fair value. Is there still an opportunity here to buy? Today I will analyse the most recent data on Fiera Milano’s outlook and valuation to see if the opportunity still exists.
Is Fiera Milano still cheap?
According to my valuation model, Fiera Milano seems to be fairly priced at around 11% below my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Fiera Milano today, you’d be paying a fair price for it. And if you believe that the stock is really worth €5.12, then there’s not much of an upside to gain from mispricing. Although, there may be an opportunity to buy in the future. This is because Fiera Milano’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.
What kind of growth will Fiera Milano generate?
Investors looking for growth in their portfolio may want to consider the prospects of a company before buying its shares. Although value investors would argue that it’s the intrinsic value relative to the price that matter the most, a more compelling investment thesis would be high growth potential at a cheap price. Fiera Milano’s earnings over the next few years are expected to double, indicating a very optimistic future ahead. This should lead to stronger cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.
What this means for you:
Are you a shareholder? FM’s optimistic future growth appears to have been factored into the current share price, with shares trading around its fair value. However, there are also other important factors which we haven’t considered today, such as the financial strength of the company. Have these factors changed since the last time you looked at the stock? Will you have enough confidence to invest in the company should the price drop below its fair value?
Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on FM, now may not be the most advantageous time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value. However, the positive outlook is encouraging for the company, which means it’s worth further examining other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
