What's the opportunity in Trifast?

The stock seems fairly valued at the moment according to my valuation model. It’s trading around 10.76% above my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Trifast today, you’d be paying a relatively fair price for it. And if you believe the company’s true value is £2.07, then there isn’t really any room for the share price grow beyond what it’s currently trading. Furthermore, Trifast’s low beta implies that the stock is less volatile than the wider market.

Can we expect growth from Trifast?

LSE:TRI Past and Future Earnings, June 30th 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. Trifast’s earnings over the next few years are expected to increase by 25%, 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? It seems like the market has already priced in TRI’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 an eye on TRI, now may not be the most advantageous time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value. However, the optimistic prospect 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.
