What is bpost worth?

Good news, investors! bpost is still a bargain right now. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is €12.41, which is above what the market is valuing the company at the moment. This indicates a potential opportunity to buy low. bpost’s share price also seems relatively stable compared to the rest of the market, as indicated by its low beta. If you believe the share price should eventually reach its true value, a low beta could suggest it is unlikely to rapidly do so anytime soon, and once it’s there, it may be hard to fall back down into an attractive buying range.

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. However, with a relatively muted profit growth of 5.4% expected over the next couple of years, growth doesn’t seem like a key driver for a buy decision for bpost, at least in the short term.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Even though growth is relatively muted, since BPOST is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase your holdings in the stock. 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 BPOST 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 BPOST. 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.
