What's the opportunity in Third Point Reinsurance?

According to my valuation model, Third Point Reinsurance seems to be fairly priced at around 8.3% below my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Third Point Reinsurance today, you’d be paying a fair price for it. And if you believe the company’s true value is $10.89, then there isn’t much room for the share price grow beyond what it’s currently trading. Although, there may be an opportunity to buy in the future. This is because Third Point Reinsurance’s beta (a measure of share price volatility) is high, meaning its price movements will be exaggerated relative to the rest of the market. If the market is bearish, the company’s shares will likely fall by more than the rest of the market, providing a prime buying opportunity.

Are you a shareholder? TPRE’s optimistic future growth appears to have been factored into the current share price, with shares trading around its fair value.

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 TPRE, now may not be the most advantageous time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value.
