Why Dollarama Inc. (TSE:DOL) Could Be Worth Watching

Simply Wall St

Let's talk about the popular Dollarama Inc. (TSE:DOL). The company's shares received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the TSX over the last few months, increasing to CA$50.95 at one point, and dropping to the lows of CA$44.31. Some share price movements can give investors a better opportunity to enter into the stock, and potentially buy at a lower price. A question to answer is whether Dollarama's current trading price of CA$44.53 reflective of the actual value of the large-cap? Or is it currently undervalued, providing us with the opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at Dollarama’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.

What is Dollarama worth?

Good news, investors! Dollarama is still a bargain right now. My valuation model shows that the intrinsic value for the stock is CA$57.16, but it is currently trading at CA$44.53 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. Dollarama’s share price also seems relatively stable compared to the rest of the market, as indicated by its low beta. If you believe the share price should eventually reach its true value, a low beta could suggest it is unlikely to rapidly do so anytime soon, and once it’s there, it may be hard to fall back down into an attractive buying range.

What does the future of Dollarama look like?

TSX:DOL Past and Future Earnings, December 10th 2019

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. Dollarama’s earnings growth are expected to be in the teens in the upcoming years, indicating a solid future ahead. This should lead to robust cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Since DOL 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 DOL for a while, now might be the time to make a leap. Its buoyant future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy DOL. 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.
