Townsquare Media, Inc. (NYSE:TSQ), which is in the media business, and is based in United States, saw a significant share price rise of over 20% in the past couple of months on the NYSE. Less-covered, small caps sees more of an opportunity for mispricing due to the lack of information available to the public, which can be a good thing.

What is Townsquare Media worth?

Great news for investors – Townsquare Media is still trading at a fairly cheap price. My valuation model shows that the intrinsic value for the stock is $15.93, which is above what the market is valuing the company at the moment. This indicates a potential opportunity to buy low. Although, there may be another chance to buy again in the future. This is because Townsquare Media’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.

Can we expect growth from Townsquare Media?

NYSE:TSQ Past and Future Earnings, November 14th 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. However, with a relatively muted revenue growth of 8.2% expected over the next couple of years, growth doesn’t seem like a key driver for a buy decision for Townsquare Media, at least in the short term.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Even though growth is relatively muted, since TSQ is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase your holdings in the stock. 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 TSQ for a while, now might be the time to enter the stock. Its future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy TSQ. But before you make any investment decisions, consider other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to make a well-informed buy.
