Simply Wall St

HD Supply Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:HDS), which is in the trade distributors business, and is based in United States, received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the NASDAQGS over the last few months, increasing to $42.53 at one point, and dropping to the lows of $37.15. 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 HD Supply Holdings's current trading price of $39.5 reflective of the actual value of the mid-cap? Or is it currently undervalued, providing us with the opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at HD Supply Holdings’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.

Is HD Supply Holdings still cheap?

Great news for investors – HD Supply Holdings is still trading at a fairly cheap price. My valuation model shows that the intrinsic value for the stock is $59.6, but it is currently trading at US$39.50 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. However, given that HD Supply Holdings’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 another chance to buy in the future. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for share price volatility.

Can we expect growth from HD Supply Holdings?

NasdaqGS:HDS Past and Future Earnings, September 16th 2019

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. HD Supply Holdings’s earnings over the next few years are expected to increase by 45%, indicating a highly optimistic future ahead. This should lead to more robust cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Since HDS is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase your holdings in the stock. With an optimistic 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 capital structure to consider, which could explain the current undervaluation.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on HDS for a while, now might be the time to enter the stock. Its buoyant future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy HDS. 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 buy.
