Tactile Systems Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:TCMD), which is in the medical equipment business, and is based in United States, received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the NASDAQGM over the last few months, increasing to $60.85 at one point, and dropping to the lows of $48.03. Some share price movements can give investors a better opportunity to enter into the stock, and potentially buy at a lower price. A question to answer is whether Tactile Systems Technology's current trading price of $52.5 reflective of the actual value of the small-cap? Or is it currently undervalued, providing us with the opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at Tactile Systems Technology’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.

What's the opportunity in Tactile Systems Technology?

The stock seems fairly valued at the moment according to my valuation model. It’s trading around 7.6% below my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Tactile Systems Technology today, you’d be paying a reasonable price for it. And if you believe the company’s true value is $56.82, then there’s not much of an upside to gain from mispricing. Is there another opportunity to buy low in the future? Since Tactile Systems Technology’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.

What kind of growth will Tactile Systems Technology generate?

NasdaqGM:TCMD Past and Future Earnings, June 27th 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. With profit expected to more than double over the next couple of years, the future seems bright for Tactile Systems Technology. 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 TCMD’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 conviction to buy should the price fluctuates below the true value?

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on TCMD, 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.
