Austin Wood

CSS Industries Inc (NYSE:CSS), a consumer durables company based in United States, saw a decent share price growth in the teens level on the NYSE over the last few months. 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. So, could the stock still be trading at a low price relative to its actual value? Let’s take a look at CSS Industries’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if the opportunity still exists. See our latest analysis for CSS Industries

Is CSS Industries still cheap?

Good news, investors! CSS Industries is still a bargain right now. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $27.4, which is above what the market is valuing the company at the moment. This indicates a potential opportunity to buy low. However, given that CSS Industries’s share is fairly volatile (i.e. its price movements are magnified relative to the rest of the market) this could mean the price can sink lower, giving us another chance to buy in the future. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for share price volatility.

What kind of growth will CSS Industries generate?
