Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) saw a significant share price rise of over 20% in the past couple of months on the NYSE. As a large-cap stock with high coverage by analysts, you could assume any recent changes in the company’s outlook is already priced into the stock. However, what if the stock is still a bargain? Let’s take a look at Ford Motor’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if the opportunity still exists.

 What is Ford Motor worth? 

 Great news for investors – Ford Motor is still trading at a fairly cheap price. My valuation model shows that the intrinsic value for the stock is $22.26, but it is currently trading at US$15.88 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 Ford Motor’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 Ford Motor generate? 

 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. 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. Ford Motor'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? Since F 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. However, there are also other factors such as financial health to consider, which could explain the current undervaluation. 

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on F for a while, now might be the time to make a leap. Its prosperous future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy F. But before you make any investment decisions, consider other factors such as the track record of its management team, in order to make a well-informed buy.
