Is There Now An Opportunity In Avingtrans plc (LON:AVG)?

Simply Wall St
·3 min read

Avingtrans plc (LON:AVG), might not be a large cap stock, but it saw a double-digit share price rise of over 10% in the past couple of months on the AIM. Less-covered, small caps sees more of an opportunity for mispricing due to the lack of information available to the public, which can be a good thing. So, could the stock still be trading at a low price relative to its actual value? Let’s examine Avingtrans’s valuation and outlook in more detail to determine if there’s still a bargain opportunity.

What is Avingtrans worth?

The stock seems fairly valued at the moment according to my valuation model. It’s trading around 1.47% above my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Avingtrans today, you’d be paying a relatively fair price for it. And if you believe that the stock is really worth £2.56, there’s only an insignificant downside when the price falls to its real value. Although, there may be an opportunity to buy in the future. This is because Avingtrans’s beta (a measure of share price volatility) is high, meaning its price movements will be exaggerated relative to the rest of the market. If the market is bearish, the company’s shares will likely fall by more than the rest of the market, providing a prime buying opportunity.

Can we expect growth from Avingtrans?

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. With profit expected to more than double over the next couple of years, the future seems bright for Avingtrans. 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? AVG’s optimistic future growth appears to have been factored into the current share price, with shares trading around its fair value. However, there are also other important factors which we haven’t considered today, such as the financial strength of the company. 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 AVG, now may not be the most optimal time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value. However, the optimistic prospect is encouraging for the company, which means it’s worth further examining other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
