What is Alpha Financial Markets Consulting worth?

According to my valuation model, Alpha Financial Markets Consulting seems to be fairly priced at around 14% below my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Alpha Financial Markets Consulting today, you’d be paying a reasonable price for it. And if you believe that the stock is really worth £2.92, then there isn’t much room for the share price grow beyond what it’s currently trading. So, is there another chance to buy low in the future? Given that Alpha Financial Markets Consulting’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 an opportunity to buy later on. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for share price volatility.

Are you a shareholder? AFM’s optimistic future growth appears to have been factored into the current share price, with shares trading around its fair value.
