A Trio of Cheap Stock Picks to Consider

·3 min read

- By Alberto Abaterusso

Do you want to enhance your chances to unearth bargains? Then you may want to screen for stocks that are trading at a discount to their intrinsic value as determined by the projected free cash flow (FCF) valuation model.

Unlike the discounted cash flow or discounted earnings valuation models, the projected FCF model can apply to companies whose history of revenue and earnings is not constant and may include losses in some quarters. The projected FCF uses normalized free cash flow and book value.


Thus, investors may want to consider the below listed stocks, as they look undervalued according to the projected FCF model and have also earned positive recommendation ratings from Wall Street sell-side analysts.

Coty Inc

The first stock that makes the cut is Coty Inc (NYSE:COTY).

The New York-based global manufacturer, marketer and seller of beauty products traded at a price of $3.55 per share at close on Friday, which represents a 37.72% discount to the projected FCF of $5.7.

The share price has fallen by 66.7% over the past year, determining a market capitalization of $2.72 billion and a 52-week range of $2.65 to $13.42.

JetBlue Airways Corp

The second stock that meets the above listed criteria is JetBlue Airways Corp (NASDAQ:JBLU), a Long Island City, New York-based airlines company.

The stock traded at a price of $12.74 per share at close on Friday, which represents a 39% discount to the projected FCF of $20.91.
