What's the opportunity in ZOO Digital Group?

Good news, investors! ZOO Digital Group is still a bargain right now. My valuation model shows that the intrinsic value for the stock is £0.98, but it is currently trading at UK£0.66 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. Another thing to keep in mind is that ZOO Digital Group’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.

Can we expect growth from ZOO Digital Group?

AIM:ZOO Past and Future Earnings, May 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. 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. In ZOO Digital Group’s case, its revenues over the next few years are expected to grow by 40%, indicating a highly optimistic future ahead. If expense does not increase by the same rate, or higher, this top line growth should lead to stronger cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Since ZOO is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase 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 ZOO 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 ZOO. 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.
