Is AMN Healthcare Services still cheap?

Good news, investors! AMN Healthcare Services is still a bargain right now. My valuation model shows that the intrinsic value for the stock is $87.05, but it is currently trading at US$61.49 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. AMN Healthcare Services’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 this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Since AMN is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase your holdings in the stock. With an optimistic 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 capital structure to consider, which could explain the current undervaluation.

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