Is It The Right Time To Buy Deutsche Post AG (ETR:DPW)?

Grace Strickland

Deutsche Post AG (ETR:DPW) received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the XTRA over the last few months, increasing to €38 at one point, and dropping to the lows of €29.46. 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 Deutsche Post’s current trading price of €30.23 reflective of the actual value of the large-cap? Or is it currently undervalued, providing us with the opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at Deutsche Post’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change. View out our latest analysis for Deutsche Post

Is Deutsche Post still cheap?

According to my valuation model, the stock is currently overvalued by about 75.91%, trading at €30.23 compared to my intrinsic value of €17.18. This means that the opportunity to buy Deutsche Post at a good price has disappeared! But, is there another opportunity to buy low in the future? Given that Deutsche Post’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 Deutsche Post generate?

XTRA:DPW Future Profit June 24th 18

Investors looking for growth in their portfolio may want to consider the prospects of a company before buying its shares. 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. Deutsche Post’s earnings growth are expected to be in the teens in the upcoming years, indicating a solid future ahead. This should lead to robust cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? It seems like the market has well and truly priced in DPW’s positive outlook, with shares trading above its fair value. At this current price, shareholders may be asking a different question – should I sell? If you believe DPW should trade below its current price, selling high and buying it back up again when its price falls towards its real value can be profitable. But before you make this decision, take a look at whether its fundamentals have changed.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping tabs on DPW for some time, now may not be the best time to enter into the stock. The price has surpassed its true value, which means there’s no upside from mispricing. However, the positive outlook is encouraging for DPW, which means it’s worth diving deeper into other factors in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
