Is Eurocastle Investment still cheap?

Good news, investors! Eurocastle Investment is still a bargain right now. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is €31.63, which is above what the market is valuing the company at the moment. This indicates a potential opportunity to buy low. What’s more interesting is that, Eurocastle Investment’s share price is quite stable, which could mean two things: firstly, it may take the share price a while to move to its intrinsic value, and secondly, there may be less chances to buy low in the future once it reaches that value. This is because the stock is less volatile than the wider market given its low beta.

Can we expect growth from Eurocastle Investment?

ENXTAM:ECT Future Profit July 2nd 18 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. However, with an extreme expected decline in the top-line in the upcoming year, short term growth is certainly not a driver of a buy decision. It seems like high uncertainty is on the cards for Eurocastle Investment.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Although ECT is currently undervalued, the negative outlook does bring on some uncertainty, which equates to higher risk. Consider whether you want to increase your portfolio exposure to ECT, or whether diversifying into another stock may be a better move for your total risk and return.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on ECT for a while, but hesitant on making the leap, I recommend you research further into the stock. Given its current undervaluation, now is a great time to make a decision. But keep in mind the risks that come with negative growth prospects in the future.
