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?

Is Yangtze Optical Fibre And Cable Limited still cheap?

Good news, investors! Yangtze Optical Fibre And Cable Limited is still a bargain right now. My valuation model shows that the intrinsic value for the stock is HK$19.08, which is above what the market is valuing the company at the moment. This indicates a potential opportunity to buy low. Although, there may be another chance to buy again in the future. This is because Yangtze Optical Fibre And Cable Limited’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 Yangtze Optical Fibre And Cable Limited?

SEHK:6869 Past and Future Earnings, July 16th 2019

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. However, with an extremely negative double-digit change in profit expected over the next couple of years, near-term growth is certainly not a driver of a buy decision. It seems like high uncertainty is on the cards for Yangtze Optical Fibre And Cable Limited, at least in the near future.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Although 6869 is currently undervalued, the negative outlook does bring on some uncertainty, which equates to higher risk. Consider whether you want to increase your portfolio exposure to 6869, or whether diversifying into another stock may be a better move for your total risk and return.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping tabs on 6869 for some time, but hesitant on making the leap, I recommend you dig deeper into the stock. Given its current undervaluation, now is a great time to make a decision. But keep in mind the risks that come with negative growth prospects in the future.
