Is It Too Late To Consider Buying Fabasoft AG (ETR:FAA)?

While Fabasoft AG (ETR:FAA) might not be the most widely known stock at the moment, it saw a significant share price rise of over 20% in the past couple of months on the XTRA. Less-covered, small caps tend to present more of an opportunity for mispricing due to the lack of information available to the public, which can be a good thing. So, could the stock still be trading at a low price relative to its actual value? Today I will analyse the most recent data on Fabasoft’s outlook and valuation to see if the opportunity still exists.

Is Fabasoft Still Cheap?

The stock seems fairly valued at the moment according to my valuation model. It’s trading around 12% below my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Fabasoft today, you’d be paying a reasonable price for it. And if you believe that the stock is really worth €23.92, then there’s not much of an upside to gain from mispricing. So, is there another chance to buy low in the future? Given that Fabasoft’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 an opportunity to buy later on. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for share price volatility.

What This Means For You

Are you a shareholder? It seems like the market has already priced in FAA’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 tabs on FAA, now may not be the most optimal time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value.
