Zendesk, Inc. (NYSE:ZEN), which is in the software business, and is based in United States, saw a decent share price growth in the teens level on the NYSE over the last few months. 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. But what if there is still an opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at Zendesk’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if the opportunity still exists.

What is Zendesk worth?

Great news for investors – Zendesk is still trading at a fairly cheap price. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $92.00, but it is currently trading at US$62.49 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. What’s more interesting is that, Zendesk’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.

Can we expect growth from Zendesk?

Investors looking for growth in their portfolio may want to consider the prospects of a company before buying its shares. 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. With profit expected to grow by a double-digit 16% over the next couple of years, the outlook is positive for Zendesk. It looks like higher cash flow is on the cards for the stock, which should feed into a higher share valuation.

What this means for you:

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