What's the opportunity in Radware?

The stock seems fairly valued at the moment according to my valuation model. It’s trading around 14.67% above my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Radware today, you’d be paying a relatively reasonable price for it. And if you believe the company’s true value is $22.84, there’s only an insignificant downside when the price falls to its real value. In addition to this, Radware has a low beta, which suggests its share price is less volatile than the wider market.

What kind of growth will Radware generate?

NasdaqGS:RDWR Past and Future Earnings, May 2nd 2019

Investors looking for growth in their portfolio may want to consider the prospects of a company before buying its shares. 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. Radware’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? It seems like the market has already priced in RDWR’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 track record of its management team. Have these factors changed since the last time you looked at the stock? Will you have enough conviction to buy should the price fluctuates below the true value?

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