Is It Too Late To Consider Buying SAF-Holland SE (ETR:SFQ)?

SAF-Holland SE (ETR:SFQ), might not be a large cap stock, but it saw a significant share price rise of 27% in the past couple of months on the XTRA. The recent jump in the share price has meant that the company is trading at close to its 52-week high. With many analysts covering the stock, we may expect any price-sensitive announcements have already been factored into the stock’s share price. However, what if the stock is still a bargain?

Is SAF-Holland Still Cheap?

The stock seems fairly valued at the moment according to our valuation model. It’s trading around 1.7% below our intrinsic value, which means if you buy SAF-Holland today, you’d be paying a fair price for it. And if you believe that the stock is really worth €15.42, then there’s not much of an upside to gain from mispricing. Although, there may be an opportunity to buy in the future. This is because SAF-Holland’s beta (a measure of share price volatility) is high, meaning its price movements will be exaggerated relative to the rest of the market. If the market is bearish, the company’s shares will likely fall by more than the rest of the market, providing a prime buying opportunity.
