j2 Global, Inc. (NASDAQ:JCOM), which is in the software business, and is based in United States, saw a double-digit share price rise of over 10% in the past couple of months on the NASDAQGS. With many analysts covering the mid-cap stock, we may expect any price-sensitive announcements have already been factored into the stock’s share price. However, what if the stock is still a bargain?

What's the opportunity in j2 Global?

Great news for investors – j2 Global is still trading at a fairly cheap price. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $127.03, but it is currently trading at US$95.57 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. Another thing to keep in mind is that j2 Global’s share price may be quite stable relative to the rest of the market, as indicated by its low beta. This means that if you believe the current share price should move towards its intrinsic value over time, a low beta could suggest it is not likely to reach that level anytime soon, and once it’s there, it may be hard to fall back down into an attractive buying range again.

What kind of growth will j2 Global generate?

NasdaqGS:JCOM Past and Future Earnings, October 14th 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. j2 Global’s earnings over the next few years are expected to increase by 57%, 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? Since JCOM is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase your holdings in the stock. With a positive 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 JCOM 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 JCOM. But before you make any investment decisions, consider other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to make a well-informed buy.
