Is It Time To Consider Buying Technogym S.p.A. (BIT:TGYM)?

Simply Wall St

Technogym S.p.A. (BIT:TGYM), which is in the leisure business, and is based in Italy, saw significant share price movement during recent months on the BIT, rising to highs of €11.6 and falling to the lows of €9.82. 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 Technogym's current trading price of €10.21 reflective of the actual value of the mid-cap? Or is it currently undervalued, providing us with the opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at Technogym’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.

What is Technogym worth?

The stock seems fairly valued at the moment according to my relative valuation model. In this instance, I’ve used the price-to-earnings (PE) ratio given that there is not enough information to reliably forecast the stock’s cash flows. I find that Technogym’s ratio of 22.2x is trading slightly above its industry peers’ ratio of 18.47x, which means if you buy Technogym today, you’d be paying a relatively reasonable price for it. And if you believe that Technogym should be trading at this level in the long run, there’s only an insignificant downside when the price falls to its real value. Is there another opportunity to buy low in the future? Since Technogym’s share price is quite volatile, we could potentially see it sink lower (or rise higher) in the future, giving us another chance to buy. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for how much the stock moves relative to the rest of the market.

What kind of growth will Technogym generate?

BIT:TGYM Past and Future Earnings, May 22nd 2019

Investors looking for growth in their portfolio may want to consider the prospects of a company before buying its shares. 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. With profit expected to grow by a double-digit 15% over the next couple of years, the outlook is positive for Technogym. 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? It seems like the market has already priced in TGYM’s positive outlook, with shares trading around its fair value. However, there are also other important factors which we haven’t considered today, such as the track record of its management team. Have these factors changed since the last time you looked at TGYM? Will you have enough conviction to buy should the price fluctuate below the true value?

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on TGYM, now may not be the most advantageous time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value. However, the positive outlook is encouraging for TGYM, which means it’s worth further examining other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
