Should You Think About Buying Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE:H) Now?

Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE:H), might not be a large cap stock, but it received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the NYSE over the last few months, increasing to US$99.64 at one point, and dropping to the lows of US$71.21. Some share price movements can give investors a better opportunity to enter into the stock, and potentially buy at a lower price.

What's the opportunity in Hyatt Hotels?

Good news, investors! Hyatt Hotels is still a bargain right now. My valuation model shows that the intrinsic value for the stock is $109.16, but it is currently trading at US$74.26 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. Although, there may be another chance to buy again in the future. This is because Hyatt Hotels’s beta (a measure of share price volatility) is high, meaning its price movements will be exaggerated relative to the rest of the market. If the market is bearish, the company's shares will likely fall by more than the rest of the market, providing a prime buying opportunity.

What kind of growth will Hyatt Hotels generate?

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. Hyatt Hotels' earnings over the next few years are expected to double, indicating a very optimistic future ahead. This should lead to stronger cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Since H is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to accumulate more of 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 capital structure to consider, which could explain the current undervaluation.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on H for a while, now might be the time to make a leap. Its buoyant future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy H. But before you make any investment decisions, consider other factors such as the track record of its management team, in order to make a well-informed investment decision.
