Eagle Bulk Shipping Inc. (NASDAQ:EGLE), which is in the shipping business, and is based in United States, received a lot of attention from a substantial price increase on the NASDAQGS over the last few months. With many analysts covering the stock, we may expect any price-sensitive announcements have already been factored into the stock’s share price. But what if there is still an opportunity to buy? Let’s examine Eagle Bulk Shipping’s valuation and outlook in more detail to determine if there’s still a bargain opportunity.

Is Eagle Bulk Shipping still cheap?

Good news, investors! Eagle Bulk Shipping is still a bargain right now. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $7.45, but it is currently trading at US$5.17 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. However, given that Eagle Bulk Shipping’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.

What kind of growth will Eagle Bulk Shipping generate?

NasdaqGS:EGLE Past and Future Earnings, April 16th 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. Eagle Bulk Shipping’s earnings over the next few years are expected to double, indicating a very optimistic future ahead. This should lead to stronger cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Since EGLE 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 EGLE for a while, now might be the time to make a leap. Its buoyant future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy EGLE. 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 investment decision.
