BOK Financial Corporation (NASDAQ:BOKF), operating in the financial services industry based in United States, received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the NASDAQGS over the last few months, increasing to US$88.05 at one point, and dropping to the lows of US$65.13. 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 BOK Financial's current trading price of US$65.13 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 BOK Financial’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.

Is BOK Financial still cheap?

Good news, investors! BOK Financial is still a bargain right now. My valuation model shows that the intrinsic value for the stock is $93.09, but it is currently trading at US$65.13 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. However, given that BOK Financial’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 BOK Financial generate?

Investors looking for growth in their portfolio may want to consider the prospects of a company before buying its shares. Buying a great company with a robust outlook at a cheap price is always a good investment, so let’s also take a look at the company's future expectations. Though in the case of BOK Financial, it is expected to deliver a relatively unexciting earnings growth of 0.8%, which doesn’t help build up its investment thesis. Growth doesn’t appear to be a main reason for a buy decision for the company, at least in the near term.

What this means for you:

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