Travelzoo (NASDAQ:TZOO), which is in the interactive media and services business, and is based in United States, saw significant share price movement during recent months on the NASDAQGS, rising to highs of US$14.96 and falling to the lows of US$10.07. Some share price movements can give investors a better opportunity to enter into the stock, and potentially buy at a lower price.

Let’s take a look at Travelzoo’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.

What's the opportunity in Travelzoo?

According to my valuation model, Travelzoo seems to be fairly priced at around 7.4% below my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Travelzoo today, you’d be paying a reasonable price for it. And if you believe the company’s true value is $11.12, then there’s not much of an upside to gain from mispricing. Is there another opportunity to buy low in the future? Since Travelzoo’s share price is quite volatile, we could potentially see it sink lower (or rise higher) in the future, giving us another chance to buy. 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.

Can we expect growth from Travelzoo?

Future outlook is an important aspect when you’re looking at buying a stock, especially if you are an investor looking for growth in your portfolio. 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. Travelzoo’s earnings growth are expected to be in the teens in the upcoming year, indicating a solid future ahead. This should lead to robust cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? It seems like the market has already priced in TZOO’s positive outlook, 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 tabs on TZOO, now may not be the most advantageous time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value. However, the optimistic prospect 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.
