Is Safestore Holdings still cheap?

The stock seems fairly valued at the moment according to my valuation model. It’s trading around 19% above my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Safestore Holdings today, you’d be paying a relatively reasonable price for it. And if you believe that the stock is really worth £4.06, then there isn’t really any room for the share price grow beyond what it’s currently trading. Furthermore, Safestore Holdings’s share price also seems relatively stable compared to the rest of the market, as indicated by its low beta. This may mean it is less likely for the stock to fall lower from natural market volatility, which suggests less opportunities to buy moving forward.

Can we expect growth from Safestore Holdings?

LSE:SAFE Future Profit Dec 26th 17

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. Though in the case of Safestore Holdings, it is expected to deliver a highly negative earnings growth in the next few years, which doesn’t help build up its investment thesis. It appears that risk of future uncertainty is high, at least in the near term.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Safestore Holdings seems fairly priced right now, but given the uncertainty from negative returns in the future, this could be the right time to reduce the risk in your portfolio. Is your current exposure to the stock beneficial for your total portfolio? And is the opportunity cost of holding a negative-outlook stock too high? Before you make a decision on the stock, take a look at whether its fundamentals have changed.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on Safestore Holdings for a while, now may not be the most advantageous time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value.
