OC Oerlikon Corporation AG (VTX:OERL), which is in the machinery business, and is based in Switzerland, saw significant share price movement during recent months on the SWX, rising to highs of CHF13.6 and falling to the lows of CHF10.92. Some share price movements can give investors a better opportunity to enter into the stock, and potentially buy at a lower price.

Or is it currently undervalued, providing us with the opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at OC Oerlikon’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.

What's the opportunity in OC Oerlikon?

According to my valuation model, OC Oerlikon seems to be fairly priced at around 4.14% above my intrinsic value, which means if you buy OC Oerlikon today, you’d be paying a relatively fair price for it. And if you believe that the stock is really worth CHF10.84, there’s only an insignificant downside when the price falls to its real value. Is there another opportunity to buy low in the future? Since OC Oerlikon’s share price is quite volatile, we could potentially see it sink lower (or rise higher) in the future, giving us another chance to buy. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for how much the stock moves relative to the rest of the market.

Can we expect growth from OC Oerlikon?

SWX:OERL Past and Future Earnings, June 17th 2019

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 grow by 38% over the next couple of years, the future seems bright for OC Oerlikon. 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 already priced in OERL’s positive outlook, with shares trading around its fair value. However, there are also other important factors which we haven’t considered today, such as the track record of its management team. 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 an eye on OERL, now may not be the most advantageous 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.
