Why Digital Turbine Inc (NASDAQ:APPS) Could Be A Buy

Alex Johannesen

Digital Turbine Inc (NASDAQ:APPS), a software company based in United States, received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the NasdaqCM over the last few months, increasing to $2.51 at one point, and dropping to the lows of $1.58. This high level of volatility gives investors the opportunity to enter into the stock, and potentially buy at an artificially low price. A question to answer is whether Digital Turbine’s current trading price of $1.64 reflective of the actual value of the small-cap? Or is it currently undervalued, providing us with the opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at Digital Turbine’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change. See our latest analysis for Digital Turbine

Is Digital Turbine still cheap?

According to my valuation model, the stock is currently overvalued by about 32%, trading at US$1.64 compared to my intrinsic value of $1.25. This means that the opportunity to buy Digital Turbine at a good price has disappeared! But, is there another opportunity to buy low in the future? Since Digital Turbine’s share price is quite volatile, this could mean it can sink lower (or rise even further) in the future, giving us another chance to invest. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for how much the stock moves relative to the rest of the market.

What kind of growth will Digital Turbine generate?

NasdaqCM:APPS Future Profit May 17th 18

Future outlook is an important aspect when you’re looking at buying a stock, especially if you are an investor looking for growth in your portfolio. 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 grow by 75.24% over the next year, the near-term future seems bright for Digital Turbine. It looks like higher cash flows is on the cards for the stock, which should feed into a higher share valuation.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? APPS’s optimistic future growth appears to have been factored into the current share price, with shares trading above its fair value. At this current price, shareholders may be asking a different question – should I sell? If you believe APPS should trade below its current price, selling high and buying it back up again when its price falls towards its real value can be profitable. But before you make this decision, take a look at whether its fundamentals have changed.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on APPS for a while, now may not be the best time to enter into the stock. The price has surpassed its true value, which means there’s no upside from mispricing. However, the positive outlook is encouraging for APPS, which means it’s worth diving deeper into other factors in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
