Is It Time To Consider Buying Olin Corporation (NYSE:OLN)?

Simply Wall St

Olin Corporation (NYSE:OLN), which is in the chemicals 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. With many analysts covering the mid-cap stock, we may expect any price-sensitive announcements have already been factored into the stock’s share price. However, what if the stock is still a bargain? Today I will analyse the most recent data on Olin’s outlook and valuation to see if the opportunity still exists.

What's the opportunity in Olin?

Good news, investors! Olin is still a bargain right now. My valuation model shows that the intrinsic value for the stock is $26.00, which is above what the market is valuing the company at the moment. This indicates a potential opportunity to buy low. However, given that Olin’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.

Can we expect growth from Olin?

NYSE:OLN Past and Future Earnings, October 21st 2019

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. With profit expected to grow by a double-digit 18% over the next couple of years, the outlook is positive for Olin. It looks like higher cash flow is on the cards for the stock, which should feed into a higher share valuation.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Since OLN is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to accumulate more of your holdings in the stock. With an optimistic outlook on the horizon, it seems like this growth has not yet been fully factored into the share price. However, there are also other factors such as capital structure to consider, which could explain the current undervaluation.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on OLN for a while, now might be the time to enter the stock. Its buoyant future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy OLN. But before you make any investment decisions, consider other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to make a well-informed buy.
