Is Now The Time To Look At Buying Park Hotels & Resorts Inc. (NYSE:PK)?

Michael Canly

Park Hotels & Resorts Inc. (NYSE:PK), which is in the reits business, and is based in United States, saw a double-digit share price rise of over 10% in the past couple of months on the NYSE. With many analysts covering the mid-cap stock, we may expect any price-sensitive announcements have already been factored into the stock’s share price. But what if there is still an opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at Park Hotels & Resorts’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if the opportunity still exists.

What is Park Hotels & Resorts worth?

Good news, investors! Park Hotels & Resorts is still a bargain right now. My valuation model shows that the intrinsic value for the stock is $40.13, but it is currently trading at US$29.33 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. However, given that Park Hotels & Resorts’s share is fairly volatile (i.e. its price movements are magnified relative to the rest of the market) this could mean the price can sink lower, giving us another chance to buy in the future. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for share price volatility.

What does the future of Park Hotels & Resorts look like?

NYSE:PK Future Profit January 31st 19

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 Park Hotels & Resorts, 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? Although PK 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 PK, 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 PK for some time, but hesitant on making the leap, I recommend you research further 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.
