(FRA:NVQ), which is in the it business, and is based in Portugal, received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the DB over the last few months, increasing to €2.83 at one point, and dropping to the lows of €2.39. Some share price movements can give investors a better opportunity to enter into the stock, and potentially buy at a lower price.

Is Novabase S.G.P.S still cheap?

Great news for investors – Novabase S.G.P.S is still trading at a fairly cheap price. In this instance, I’ve used the price-to-earnings (PE) ratio given that there is not enough information to reliably forecast the stock’s cash flows. I find that Novabase S.G.P.S’s ratio of 16.12x is below its peer average of 31.09x, which suggests the stock is undervalued compared to the IT industry. Novabase S.G.P.S’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.

What kind of growth will Novabase S.G.P.S generate?

DB:NVQ Past and Future Earnings, January 16th 2020

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. 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. Novabase S.G.P.S’s earnings over the next few years are expected to increase by 25%, 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 NVQ is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase your holdings in the stock. With a positive 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 capital structure to consider, which could explain the current undervaluation.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on NVQ for a while, now might be the time to enter the stock. Its buoyant future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy NVQ. But before you make any investment decisions, consider other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to make a well-informed buy.
