What Is SolarWinds Corporation's (NYSE:SWI) Share Price Doing?

·3 min read

SolarWinds Corporation (NYSE:SWI), is not the largest company out there, but it saw significant share price movement during recent months on the NYSE, rising to highs of US$12.57 and falling to the lows of US$9.37. Some share price movements can give investors a better opportunity to enter into the stock, and potentially buy at a lower price. A question to answer is whether SolarWinds' current trading price of US$9.64 reflective of the actual value of the small-cap? Or is it currently undervalued, providing us with the opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at SolarWinds’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.

Check out our latest analysis for SolarWinds

Is SolarWinds Still Cheap?

Good news, investors! SolarWinds is still a bargain right now. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $15.70, but it is currently trading at US$9.64 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. SolarWinds’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 SolarWinds look like?

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. With profit expected to grow by 95% over the next year, the near-term future seems bright for SolarWinds. 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 SWI is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase 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 financial health to consider, which could explain the current undervaluation.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on SWI for a while, now might be the time to enter the stock. Its buoyant future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy SWI. 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 investment decision.
