Haynes Publishing Group P.L.C. (LON:HYNS), which is in the media business, and is based in United Kingdom, led the LSE gainers with a relatively large price hike in the past couple of weeks. As a small cap stock, hardly covered by any analysts, 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 Haynes Publishing Group's outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if the opportunity still exists.

What is Haynes Publishing Group worth?
Great news for investors - Haynes Publishing Group is still trading at a fairly cheap price. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is £7.10, but it is currently trading at UK£4.05 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. However, given that Haynes Publishing Group'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 Haynes Publishing Group look like?
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. Haynes Publishing Group's revenue growth are expected to be in the teens in the upcoming years, indicating a solid future ahead. Unless expenses grow at the same level, or higher, this top-line growth should lead to robust cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.
What this means for you:
Are you a shareholder? Since HYNS 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 HYNS 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 HYNS. 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.
