Braemar Hotels & Resorts, Inc. (NYSE:BHR), which is in the reits business, and is based in United States, received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the NYSE over the last few months, increasing to $13.94 at one point, and dropping to the lows of $9.19. Some share price movements can give investors a better opportunity to enter into the stock, and potentially buy at a lower price. A question to answer is whether Braemar Hotels & Resorts's current trading price of $9.27 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 Braemar Hotels & Resorts’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.

Is Braemar Hotels & Resorts still cheap?

Great news for investors – Braemar Hotels & Resorts is still trading at a fairly cheap price. My valuation model shows that the intrinsic value for the stock is $17.3, but it is currently trading at US$9.27 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. However, given that Braemar Hotels & Resorts’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 Braemar Hotels & Resorts generate?

NYSE:BHR Past and Future Earnings, July 16th 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. Although value investors would argue that it’s the intrinsic value relative to the price that matter the most, a more compelling investment thesis would be high growth potential at a cheap price. However, with an extremely negative double-digit change in profit expected over the next couple of years, near-term growth is certainly not a driver of a buy decision. It seems like high uncertainty is on the cards for Braemar Hotels & Resorts, at least in the near future.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Although BHR is currently undervalued, the negative outlook does bring on some uncertainty, which equates to higher risk. I recommend you think about whether you want to increase your portfolio exposure to BHR, or whether diversifying into another stock may be a better move for your total risk and return.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping tabs on BHR for some time, but hesitant on making the leap, I recommend you dig deeper into the stock. Given its current undervaluation, now is a great time to make a decision. But keep in mind the risks that come with negative growth prospects in the future.
