What Is Nephros, Inc.'s (NASDAQ:NEPH) Share Price Doing?

Nephros, Inc. (NASDAQ:NEPH), is not the largest company out there, but it received a lot of attention from a substantial price increase on the NASDAQCM over the last few months. Shareholders may appreciate the recent price jump, but the company still has a way to go before reaching its yearly highs again. Less-covered, small caps tend to present more of an opportunity for mispricing due to the lack of information available to the public, which can be a good thing. So, could the stock still be trading at a low price relative to its actual value? Today we will analyse the most recent data on Nephros’s outlook and valuation to see if the opportunity still exists.

What's The Opportunity In Nephros?

Great news for investors – Nephros is still trading at a fairly cheap price. According to our valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $4.57, but it is currently trading at US$3.58 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. However, given that Nephros’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 Nephros look like?

Investors looking for growth in their portfolio may want to consider the prospects of a company before buying its shares. 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. With profit expected to grow by 60% over the next year, the near-term future seems bright for Nephros. 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 NEPH 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.
