What’s the opportunity in Flagstar Bancorp?

Good news, investors! Flagstar Bancorp is still a bargain right now. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $44.85, but it is currently trading at US$30.14 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. What’s more interesting is that, Flagstar Bancorp’s share price is quite stable, which could mean two things: firstly, it may take the share price a while to move to its intrinsic value, and secondly, there may be less chances to buy low in the future once it reaches that value. This is because the stock is less volatile than the wider market given its low beta.

What does the future of Flagstar Bancorp look like?

NYSE:FBC Future Profit October 23rd 18

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. With profit expected to more than double over the next couple of years, the future seems bright for Flagstar Bancorp. 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? Since FBC is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase 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 financial health to consider, which could explain the current undervaluation.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on FBC 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 FBC. But before you make any investment decisions, consider other factors such as the track record of its management team, in order to make a well-informed buy.
