What's the opportunity in SBA Communications?

According to my valuation model, SBA Communications seems to be fairly priced at around 5.1% below my intrinsic value, which means if you buy SBA Communications today, you’d be paying a fair price for it. And if you believe the company’s true value is $210.14, then there’s not much of an upside to gain from mispricing. Furthermore, SBA Communications’s low beta implies that the stock is less volatile than the wider market.

What does the future of SBA Communications look like?

NasdaqGS:SBAC Past and Future Earnings, April 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 SBA Communications. 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 SBAC’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 tabs on SBAC, 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.
