Is Premier Investments Still Cheap?
The stock seems fairly valued at the moment according to my valuation model. It's trading around 0.1% below my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Premier Investments today, you'd be paying a reasonable price for it. And if you believe that the stock is really worth A$27.68, then there isn't much room for the share price grow beyond what it's currently trading. What's more, Premier Investments's share price may be more stable over time (relative to the market), as indicated by its low beta.
Can we expect growth from Premier Investments?
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. Though in the case of Premier Investments, it is expected to deliver a negative earnings growth of -12%, which doesn't help build up its investment thesis. It appears that risk of future uncertainty is high, at least in the near term.
What This Means For You
Are you a shareholder? PMV seems fairly priced right now, but given the uncertainty from negative returns in the future, this could be the right time to reduce the risk in your portfolio. Is your current exposure to the stock optimal for your total portfolio? And is the opportunity cost of holding a negative-outlook stock too high? Before you make a decision on the stock, take a look at whether its fundamentals have changed.
Are you a potential investor? If you've been keeping tabs on PMV for a while, now may not be the most optimal time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value. The stock appears to be trading at fair value, which means there's less benefit from mispricing. Furthermore, the negative growth outlook increases the risk of holding the stock. However, there are also other important factors we haven't considered today, which can help crystalize your views on PMV should the price fluctuate below its true value.
