EVERTEC, Inc. (NYSE:EVTC), which is in the it business, and is based in United States, saw a double-digit share price rise of over 10% in the past couple of months on the NYSE. As a mid-cap stock with high coverage by analysts, you could assume any recent changes in the company’s outlook is already priced into the stock. But what if there is still an opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at EVERTEC’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if the opportunity still exists.
Is EVERTEC still cheap?
According to my valuation model, EVERTEC seems to be fairly priced at around 5.2% below my intrinsic value, which means if you buy EVERTEC today, you’d be paying a reasonable price for it. And if you believe the company’s true value is $34.41, then there’s not much of an upside to gain from mispricing. What's more, EVERTEC’s share price may be more stable over time (relative to the market), as indicated by its low beta.
What kind of growth will EVERTEC generate?
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. With profit expected to grow by 24% over the next couple of years, the future seems bright for EVERTEC. It looks like higher cash flow is on the cards for the stock, which should feed into a higher share valuation.
What this means for you:
Are you a shareholder? It seems like the market has already priced in EVTC’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 conviction to buy should the price fluctuates below the true value?
Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping tabs on EVTC, 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.
