Should You Think About Buying Steelcase Inc (NYSE:SCS) Now?

Steelcase Inc (NYSE:SCS), which is in the commercial services business, and is based in United States, received a lot of attention from a substantial price increase on the NYSE over the last few months. As a well-established company, which tends to be well-covered by analysts, you could assume any recent changes in the company’s outlook is already priced into the stock. However, could the stock still be trading at a relatively cheap price? Today I will analyse the most recent data on Steelcase’s outlook and valuation to see if the opportunity still exists.

Is Steelcase still cheap?

Great news for investors – Steelcase is still trading at a fairly cheap price. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $23.53, but it is currently trading at US$17.25 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 Steelcase’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 does the future of Steelcase look like?

NYSE:SCS Future Profit November 7th 18

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. With profit expected to more than double over the next couple of years, the future seems bright for Steelcase. It looks like higher cash flow is on the cards for the stock, which should feed into a higher share valuation.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Since SCS 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 financial health to consider, which could explain the current undervaluation.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on SCS 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 SCS. 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 buy.
