Farmers National Banc Corp. (NASDAQ:FMNB), operating in the financial services industry based in United States, saw significant share price movement during recent months on the NASDAQCM, rising to highs of $14.91 and falling to the lows of $12.83. Some share price movements can give investors a better opportunity to enter into the stock, and potentially buy at a lower price. A question to answer is whether Farmers National Banc's current trading price of $13.91 reflective of the actual value of the small-cap? Or is it currently undervalued, providing us with the opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at Farmers National Banc’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 Farmers National Banc?

Great news for investors – Farmers National Banc is still trading at a fairly cheap price. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $21.54, but it is currently trading at US$13.91 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. Another thing to keep in mind is that Farmers National Banc’s share price may be quite stable relative to the rest of the market, as indicated by its low beta. This means that if you believe the current share price should move towards its intrinsic value over time, a low beta could suggest it is not likely to reach that level anytime soon, and once it’s there, it may be hard to fall back down into an attractive buying range again.

What kind of growth will Farmers National Banc 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. 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. Though in the case of Farmers National Banc, it is expected to deliver a relatively unexciting earnings growth of 6.3%, which doesn’t help build up its investment thesis. Growth doesn’t appear to be a main reason for a buy decision for Farmers National Banc, at least in the near term.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Even though growth is relatively muted, since FMNB is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to accumulate more of your holdings in the stock. 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 FMNB for a while, now might be the time to enter the stock. Its future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy FMNB. But before you make any investment decisions, consider other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to make a well-informed investment decision.
