Simply Wall St

Owens Corning (NYSE:OC), which is in the building 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 NYSE. 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? Let’s take a look at Owens Corning’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if the opportunity still exists.

Is Owens Corning still cheap?

Good news, investors! Owens Corning is still a bargain right now. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $64.8, which is above what the market is valuing the company at the moment. This indicates a potential opportunity to buy low. However, given that Owens Corning’s share is fairly volatile (i.e. its price movements are magnified relative to the rest of the market) this could mean the price can sink lower, giving us another chance to buy in the future. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for share price volatility.

What does the future of Owens Corning look like?

NYSE:OC Past and Future Earnings, March 6th 2019

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. 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. Owens Corning’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 OC 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 capital structure to consider, which could explain the current undervaluation.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on OC 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 OC. But before you make any investment decisions, consider other factors such as the track record of its management team, in order to make a well-informed investment decision.
