Rowena Monahan

Central European Media Enterprises Ltd (NASDAQ:CETV), a media company based in Bermuda, received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the NasdaqGS over the last few months, increasing to $4.35 at one point, and dropping to the lows of $3.75. This high level of volatility gives investors the opportunity to enter into the stock, and potentially buy at an artificially low price. A question to answer is whether Central European Media Enterprises’s current trading price of $3.85 reflective of the actual value of the small-cap? Or is it currently undervalued, providing us with the opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at Central European Media Enterprises’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.

Is Central European Media Enterprises still cheap?

According to my valuation model, Central European Media Enterprises seems to be fairly priced at around 15.57% below my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Central European Media Enterprises today, you’d be paying a fair price for it. And if you believe the company’s true value is $4.56, then there isn’t much room for the share price grow beyond what it’s currently trading. Although, there may be an opportunity to buy in the future. This is because Central European Media Enterprises’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.
