Should You Investigate Totally plc (LON:TLY) At UK£0.21?

Totally plc (LON:TLY), which is in the healthcare business, and is based in United Kingdom, received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the AIM over the last few months, increasing to £0.27 at one point, and dropping to the lows of £0.20. This high level of volatility gives investors the opportunity to enter into the stock, and potentially buy at an artificially low price. A question to answer is whether Totally’s current trading price of £0.21 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 Totally’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.

What is Totally worth?

Great news for investors – Totally is still trading at a fairly cheap price. I’ve used the price-to-equity ratio in this instance because there’s not enough visibility to forecast its cash flows. The stock’s ratio of 7.31x is currently well-below the industry average of 28.22x, meaning that it is trading at a cheaper price relative to its peers. However, given that Totally’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.

What kind of growth will Totally generate?

AIM:TLY Future Profit September 28th 18

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. Totally’s earnings over the next few years are expected to increase by 31.8%, 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 TLY 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 financial health to consider, which could explain the current undervaluation.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on TLY 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 TLY. 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.
