Felix Olson

FLIR Systems Inc (NASDAQ:FLIR), a electronic company based in United States, saw significant share price volatility over the past couple of months on the NasdaqGS, rising to the highs of $55.39 and falling to the lows of $49.17. 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 FLIR Systems’s current trading price of $54 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 FLIR Systems’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change. Check out our latest analysis for FLIR Systems

What’s the opportunity in FLIR Systems?

According to my valuation model, FLIR Systems seems to be fairly priced at around 18.81% above my intrinsic value, which means if you buy FLIR Systems today, you’d be paying a relatively fair price for it. And if you believe that the stock is really worth $45.45, then there isn’t really any room for the share price grow beyond what it’s currently trading. In addition to this, it seems like FLIR Systems’s share price is quite stable, which could mean there may be less chances to buy low in the future now that it’s fairly valued. This is because the stock is less volatile than the wider market given its low beta.

Can we expect growth from FLIR Systems?
