What's the opportunity in AMN Healthcare Services?

Good news, investors! AMN Healthcare Services is still a bargain right now. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $83.86, which is above what the market is valuing the company at the moment. This indicates a potential opportunity to buy low. AMN Healthcare Services’s share price also seems relatively stable compared to the rest of the market, as indicated by its low beta. If you believe the share price should eventually reach its true value, a low beta could suggest it is unlikely to rapidly do so anytime soon, and once it’s there, it may be hard to fall back down into an attractive buying range.

What does the future of AMN Healthcare Services look like?

NYSE:AMN Past and Future Earnings, June 21st 2019

Investors looking for growth in their portfolio may want to consider the prospects of a company before buying its shares. 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. AMN Healthcare Services’s earnings growth are expected to be in the teens in the upcoming years, indicating a solid future ahead. This should lead to robust cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Since AMN is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase your holdings in the stock. With an optimistic 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 AMN for a while, now might be the time to make a leap. Its buoyant future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy AMN. 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.
