What’s the opportunity in Yoma Strategic Holdings?

Yoma Strategic Holdings appears to be overvalued according to my relative valuation model. 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 Yoma Strategic Holdings’s ratio of 22.14x is above its peer average of 10.51x, which suggests the stock is overvalued compared to the Real Estate industry. In addition to this, it seems like Yoma Strategic Holdings’s share price is quite stable, which could mean two things: firstly, it may take the share price a while to fall back down to an attractive buying range, and secondly, there may be less chances to buy low in the future once it reaches that value. This is because the stock is less volatile than the wider market given its low beta.

Can we expect growth from Yoma Strategic Holdings?

SGX:Z59 Future Profit February 15th 19

Investors looking for growth in their portfolio may want to consider the prospects of a company before buying its shares. 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. With profit expected to more than double over the next couple of years, the future seems bright for Yoma Strategic Holdings. It looks like higher cash flow is on the cards for the stock, which should feed into a higher share valuation.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? It seems like the market has well and truly priced in Z59’s positive outlook, with shares trading above its fair value. However, this brings up another question – is now the right time to sell? If you believe Z59 should trade below its current price, selling high and buying it back up again when its price falls towards its real value can be profitable. But before you make this decision, take a look at whether its fundamentals have changed.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping tabs on Z59 for some time, now may not be the best time to enter into the stock. The price has surpassed its industry peers, which means it is likely that there is no more upside from mispricing. However, the optimistic prospect is encouraging for Z59, which means it’s worth diving deeper into other factors in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
