Why Penguin International Limited (SGX:BTM) Could Be Worth Watching

Simply Wall St

Penguin International Limited (SGX:BTM), which is in the shipping business, and is based in Singapore, led the SGX gainers with a relatively large price hike in the past couple of weeks. As a small cap stock, which tends to lack high analyst coverage, there is generally more of an opportunity for mispricing as there is less activity to push the stock closer to fair value. Is there still an opportunity here to buy? Let’s take a look at Penguin International’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if the opportunity still exists.

Is Penguin International still cheap?

Great news for investors – Penguin International is still trading at a fairly cheap price. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is SGD1.45, which is above what the market is valuing the company at the moment. This indicates a potential opportunity to buy low. What’s more interesting is that, Penguin International’s share price is quite volatile, which gives us more chances to buy since the share price could sink lower (or rise higher) in the future. 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 Penguin International generate?

SGX:BTM Past and Future Earnings, November 13th 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. 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. Penguin International’s earnings over the next few years are expected to increase by 28%, 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 BTM is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase your holdings in the stock. With an optimistic 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 BTM 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 BTM. 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.
