Is It Too Late To Consider Buying Ribbon Communications Inc. (NASDAQ:RBBN)?

Simply Wall St

Ribbon Communications Inc. (NASDAQ:RBBN), which is in the communications business, and is based in United States, saw a double-digit share price rise of over 10% in the past couple of months on the NASDAQGS. Less-covered, small caps sees 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 Ribbon Communications’s outlook and valuation to see if the opportunity still exists.

Is Ribbon Communications still cheap?

Good news, investors! Ribbon Communications is still a bargain right now. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $5.85, but it is currently trading at US$3.08 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. However, given that Ribbon Communications’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 Ribbon Communications generate?

NasdaqGS:RBBN Past and Future Earnings, December 24th 2019

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. Ribbon Communications’s earnings over the next few years are expected to increase by 70%, indicating a highly optimistic future ahead. This should lead to more robust cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Since RBBN is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to accumulate more of 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 RBBN for a while, now might be the time to make a leap. Its prosperous future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy RBBN. 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.
