LiveRamp Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:RAMP), might not be a large cap stock, but it saw significant share price movement during recent months on the NYSE, rising to highs of US$85.96 and falling to the lows of US$48.85. 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 LiveRamp Holdings' current trading price of US$49.35 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 LiveRamp Holdings’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 LiveRamp Holdings?

The stock seems fairly valued at the moment according to my valuation model. It’s trading around 5.1% below my intrinsic value, which means if you buy LiveRamp Holdings today, you’d be paying a reasonable price for it. And if you believe the company’s true value is $52.02, then there isn’t much room for the share price grow beyond what it’s currently trading. Is there another opportunity to buy low in the future? Since LiveRamp Holdings’s share price is quite volatile, we could potentially see it sink lower (or rise higher) in the future, giving us another chance to buy. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for how much the stock moves relative to the rest of the market.

What does the future of LiveRamp Holdings look like?

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. LiveRamp Holdings' earnings over the next few years are expected to increase by 74%, 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? It seems like the market has already priced in RAMP’s positive outlook, with shares trading around its fair value. However, there are also other important factors which we haven’t considered today, such as the track record of its management team. Have these factors changed since the last time you looked at the stock? Will you have enough conviction to buy should the price fluctuates below the true value?

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping tabs on RAMP, now may not be the most optimal time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value. However, the positive outlook is encouraging for the company, which means it’s worth diving deeper into other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
