What is Orion Group Holdings worth?

Great news for investors – Orion Group Holdings is still trading at a fairly cheap price. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $8.81, but it is currently trading at US$5.14 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. Although, there may be another chance to buy again in the future. This is because Orion Group Holdings’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.

What kind of growth will Orion Group Holdings generate?

NYSE:ORN Past and Future Earnings, September 16th 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 99% over the next year, the near-term future seems bright for Orion Group Holdings. 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 ORN is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to accumulate more of 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 capital structure to consider, which could explain the current undervaluation.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on ORN for a while, now might be the time to enter the stock. Its prosperous future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy ORN. But before you make any investment decisions, consider other factors such as the track record of its management team, in order to make a well-informed investment decision.
