Is It Too Late To Consider Buying boohoo group plc (LON:BOO)?

Simply Wall St
·3 min read

boohoo group plc (LON:BOO), might not be a large cap stock, but it saw a significant share price rise of over 20% in the past couple of months on the AIM. As a mid-cap stock with high coverage by analysts, you could assume any recent changes in the company’s outlook is already priced into the stock. But what if there is still an opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at boohoo group’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if the opportunity still exists.

Is boohoo group still cheap?

According to my valuation model, boohoo group seems to be fairly priced at around 17.02% above my intrinsic value, which means if you buy boohoo group today, you’d be paying a relatively reasonable price for it. And if you believe the company’s true value is £3.10, 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 boohoo group’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.

Can we expect growth from boohoo group?

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 83% over the next couple of years, the future seems bright for boohoo group. 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 BOO’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 financial strength of the company. Have these factors changed since the last time you looked at the stock? Will you have enough confidence to invest in the company should the price drop below its fair value?

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on BOO, now may not be the most optimal time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value. However, the optimistic prospect is encouraging for the company, which means it’s worth diving deeper into other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
