What’s the opportunity in Cincinnati Bell?

Good news, investors! Cincinnati Bell is still a bargain right now. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $13.1, which is above what the market is valuing the company at the moment. This indicates a potential opportunity to buy low. However, given that Cincinnati Bell’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 does the future of Cincinnati Bell look like?

NYSE:CBB Future Profit February 14th 19

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. 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 grow by 38% over the next couple of years, the future seems bright for Cincinnati Bell. 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? Since CBB 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 financial health to consider, which could explain the current undervaluation.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on CBB 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 CBB. 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.
