Should You Think About Buying Kering SA (EPA:KER) Now?

Simply Wall St

Let's talk about the popular Kering SA (EPA:KER). The company's shares received a lot of attention from a substantial price increase on the ENXTPA over the last few months. With many analysts covering the large-cap stock, we may expect any price-sensitive announcements have already been factored into the stock’s share price. However, what if the stock is still a bargain? Let’s examine Kering’s valuation and outlook in more detail to determine if there’s still a bargain opportunity.

What is Kering worth?

According to my valuation model, Kering seems to be fairly priced at around 11% below my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Kering today, you’d be paying a reasonable price for it. And if you believe that the stock is really worth €598.04, then there’s not much of an upside to gain from mispricing. In addition to this, Kering has a low beta, which suggests its share price is less volatile than the wider market.

What kind of growth will Kering generate?

ENXTPA:KER Past and Future Earnings, April 16th 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. Buying a great company with a robust outlook at a cheap price is always a good investment, so let’s also take a look at the company's future expectations. Kering’s earnings over the next few years are expected to increase by 51%, 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 already priced in KER’s positive outlook, with shares trading around its fair value. However, there are also other important factors which we haven’t considered today, such as the financial strength of the company. Have these factors changed since the last time you looked at the stock? Will you have enough confidence to invest in the company should the price drop below its fair value?

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping tabs on KER, now may not be the most advantageous time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value. However, the optimistic prospect is encouraging for the company, which means it’s worth further examining other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
