Is Stockmann Oyj Abp still cheap?

The stock is currently trading at €2.06 on the share market, which means it is overvalued by 33.91% compared to my intrinsic value of €1.54. This means that the buying opportunity has probably disappeared for now. But, is there another opportunity to buy low in the future? Since Stockmann Oyj Abp’s share price is quite volatile, this could mean it can sink lower (or rise even further) in the future, giving us another chance to invest. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for how much the stock moves relative to the rest of the market.

What kind of growth will Stockmann Oyj Abp generate?

HLSE:STCBV Past and Future Earnings, July 15th 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. 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. In the upcoming year, Stockmann Oyj Abp’s earnings are expected to increase by 27%, 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? It seems like the market has well and truly priced in STCBV’s positive outlook, with shares trading above its fair value. However, this brings up another question – is now the right time to sell? If you believe STCBV 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 tabs on STCBV for some time, 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 optimistic prospect is encouraging for STCBV, which means it’s worth diving deeper into other factors in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
