Helix Energy Solutions Group Inc (NYSE:HLX), an energy company based in United States, saw a decent share price growth in the teens level on the NYSE over the last few months.

Let’s take a look at Helix Energy Solutions Group’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if the opportunity still exists.

Is Helix Energy Solutions Group still cheap?

The stock seems fairly valued at the moment according to my valuation model. It’s trading around 10% above my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Helix Energy Solutions Group today, you’d be paying a relatively reasonable price for it. And if you believe the company’s true value is $5.89, then there isn’t really any room for the share price grow beyond what it’s currently trading. So, is there another chance to buy low in the future? Given that Helix Energy Solutions Group’s share is fairly volatile (i.e. its price movements are magnified relative to the rest of the market) this could mean the price can sink lower, giving us an opportunity to buy later on. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for share price volatility.

What does the future of Helix Energy Solutions Group look like?

NYSE:HLX Future Profit Apr 23rd 18

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. With profit expected to more than double over the next couple of years, the future seems bright for Helix Energy Solutions Group. It looks like higher cash flows 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 HLX’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 an eye on HLX, 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.
