Simply Wall St

Nanotech Security Corp. (CVE:NTS), which is in the aerospace & defense business, and is based in Canada, saw a decent share price growth in the teens level on the TSXV over the last few months. As a small cap stock, hardly covered by any analysts, 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? Let’s take a look at Nanotech Security’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if the opportunity still exists.

What is Nanotech Security worth?

The stock is currently trading at CA$0.56 on the share market, which means it is overvalued by 21.74% compared to my intrinsic value of CA$0.46. This means that the buying opportunity has probably disappeared for now. If you like the stock, you may want to keep an eye out for a potential price decline in the future. Since Nanotech Security’s share price is quite volatile, this could mean it can sink lower (or rise even further) in the future, giving us another chance to invest. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for how much the stock moves relative to the rest of the market.

What does the future of Nanotech Security look like?

TSXV:NTS Past and Future Earnings, May 22nd 2019

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. However, with a relatively muted profit growth of 8.9% expected over the next year, growth doesn’t seem like a key driver for a buy decision for Nanotech Security, at least in the short term.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? NTS’s future growth appears to have been factored into the current share price, with shares trading above its fair value. However, this brings up another question – is now the right time to sell? If you believe NTS should trade below its current price, selling high and buying it back up again when its price falls towards its real value can be profitable. But before you make this decision, take a look at whether its fundamentals have changed.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping tabs on NTS for some time, now may not be the best time to enter into the stock. The price has surpassed its true value, which means there’s no upside from mispricing. However, the positive outlook means it’s worth diving deeper into other factors in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
