Métropole Télévision SA (EPA:MMT), which is in the media business, and is based in France, received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the ENXTPA over the last few months, increasing to €18.37 at one point, and dropping to the lows of €15. 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 Métropole Télévision’s current trading price of €15.76 reflective of the actual value of the mid-cap? Or is it currently undervalued, providing us with the opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at Métropole Télévision’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.
What’s the opportunity in Métropole Télévision?
The stock seems fairly valued at the moment according to my valuation model. It’s trading around 16% below my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Métropole Télévision today, you’d be paying a fair price for it. And if you believe that the stock is really worth €18.85, then there isn’t much room for the share price grow beyond what it’s currently trading. Furthermore, it seems like Métropole Télévision’s share price is quite stable, which means there may be less chances to buy low in the future now that it’s fairly valued. This is because the stock is less volatile than the wider market given its low beta.
Can we expect growth from Métropole Télévision?
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. However, with a relatively muted profit growth of 7.7% expected over the next couple of years, growth doesn’t seem like a key driver for a buy decision for Métropole Télévision, at least in the short term.
What this means for you:
Are you a shareholder? It seems like the market has already priced in MMT’s future outlook, with shares trading around its fair value. However, there are also other important factors which we haven’t considered today, such as the track record of its management team. 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 tabs on MMT, now may not be the most advantageous time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value. However, the positive outlook means it’s worth diving deeper into other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
