Sealed Air Corporation (NYSE:SEE), is not the largest company out there, but it saw a decent share price growth in the teens level on the NYSE over the last few months. With many analysts covering the mid-cap stock, we may expect any price-sensitive announcements have already been factored into the stock’s share price. But what if there is still an opportunity to buy? Today I will analyse the most recent data on Sealed Air’s outlook and valuation to see if the opportunity still exists.

What is Sealed Air worth?

Good news, investors! Sealed Air is still a bargain right now. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $60.29, which is above what the market is valuing the company at the moment. This indicates a potential opportunity to buy low. However, given that Sealed Air’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 Sealed Air?

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. However, with a relatively muted profit growth of 6.9% expected over the next couple of years, growth doesn’t seem like a key driver for a buy decision for Sealed Air, at least in the short term.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Even though growth is relatively muted, since SEE is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase your holdings in the stock. 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 SEE for a while, now might be the time to make a leap. Its future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy SEE. 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.

In light of this, if you'd like to do more analysis on the company, it's vital to be informed of the risks involved. For example, we've found that Sealed Air has 2 warning signs (1 is a bit unpleasant!) that deserve your attention before going any further with your analysis.
