SiteOne Landscape Supply appears to be overvalued by 32.16% at the moment, based on my discounted cash flow valuation. The stock is currently priced at US$75.07 on the market compared to my intrinsic value of $56.8. Not the best news for investors looking to buy!

NYSE:SITE Past and Future Earnings, August 26th 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. SiteOne Landscape Supply’s earnings over the next few years are expected to increase by 46%, indicating a highly optimistic future ahead. This should lead to more robust cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? SITE’s optimistic future growth appears to have been factored into the current share price, with shares trading above its fair value. However, this brings up another question – is now the right time to sell? If you believe SITE should trade below its current price, selling high and buying it back up again when its price falls towards its real value can be profitable. But before you make this decision, take a look at whether its fundamentals have changed.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on SITE for a while, now may not be the best time to enter into the stock. The price has surpassed its true value, which means there’s no upside from mispricing. However, the positive outlook is encouraging for SITE, which means it’s worth diving deeper into other factors in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
