Gabriel Boyd

Graphite India Limited (NSE:GRAPHITE), a electrical company based in India, saw a significant share price rise of over 20% in the past couple of months on the NSEI. With many analysts covering the mid-cap stock, we may expect any price-sensitive announcements have already been factored into the stock’s share price. But what if there is still an opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at Graphite India’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if the opportunity still exists.

Is Graphite India still cheap?

Great news for investors – Graphite India is still trading at a fairly cheap price. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is ₹1364.1, but it is currently trading at ₹1,051 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. What’s more interesting is that, Graphite India’s share price is quite volatile, which gives us more chances to buy since the share price could sink lower (or rise higher) in the future. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for how much the stock moves relative to the rest of the market.

Can we expect growth from Graphite India?

NSEI:GRAPHITE Future Profit August 23rd 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. 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. Graphite India’s earnings over the next few years are expected to increase by 35.65%, indicating a highly optimistic future ahead. This should lead to more robust cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Since GRAPHITE is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to accumulate more of 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 GRAPHITE for a while, now might be the time to enter the stock. Its prosperous future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy GRAPHITE. 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 investment decision.
