Is It Time To Consider Buying Brandywine Realty Trust (NYSE:BDN)?

Joseph Holm

Brandywine Realty Trust (NYSE:BDN), which is in the reits business, and is based in United States, saw a decent share price growth in the teens level on the NYSE over the last few months. As a well-established company, which tends to be well-covered by analysts, you could assume any recent changes in the company’s outlook is already priced into the stock. However, could the stock still be trading at a relatively cheap price? Today I will analyse the most recent data on Brandywine Realty Trust’s outlook and valuation to see if the opportunity still exists.

What’s the opportunity in Brandywine Realty Trust?

Good news, investors! Brandywine Realty Trust is still a bargain right now. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $19.98, but it is currently trading at US$14.22 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. Another thing to keep in mind is that Brandywine Realty Trust’s share price may be quite stable relative to the rest of the market, as indicated by its low beta. This means that if you believe the current share price should move towards its intrinsic value over time, a low beta could suggest it is not likely to reach that level anytime soon, and once it’s there, it may be hard to fall back down into an attractive buying range again.

What does the future of Brandywine Realty Trust look like?

NYSE:BDN Future Profit January 22nd 19

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 Brandywine Realty Trust, at least in the near future.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Although BDN is currently undervalued, the negative outlook does bring on some uncertainty, which equates to higher risk. Consider whether you want to increase your portfolio exposure to BDN, 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 BDN 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.
