Is It Time To Consider Buying Tencent Holdings Limited (HKG:700)?

Simply Wall St

Today we're going to take a look at the well-established Tencent Holdings Limited (HKG:700). The company's stock received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the SEHK over the last few months, increasing to HK$373.2 at one point, and dropping to the lows of HK$322. 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 Tencent Holdings's current trading price of HK$326.2 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 Tencent Holdings’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.

Is Tencent Holdings still cheap?

Good news, investors! Tencent Holdings is still a bargain right now. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is HK$436.03, but it is currently trading at HK$326 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. Although, there may be another chance to buy again in the future. This is because Tencent Holdings’s beta (a measure of share price volatility) is high, meaning its price movements will be exaggerated relative to the rest of the market. If the market is bearish, the company's shares will likely fall by more than the rest of the market, providing a prime buying opportunity.

What does the future of Tencent Holdings look like?

SEHK:700 Past and Future Earnings, August 27th 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. 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 72% over the next couple of years, the future seems bright for Tencent Holdings. 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 700 is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase your holdings in the stock. With a positive 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 700 for a while, now might be the time to make a leap. Its prosperous future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy 700. 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.
