Simply Wall St

Cerillion PLC (LON:CER), which is in the software business, and is based in United Kingdom, saw a double-digit share price rise of over 10% in the past couple of months on the AIM. As a small cap stock, hardly covered by any analysts, there is generally more of an opportunity for mispricing as there is less activity to push the stock closer to fair value. Is there still an opportunity here to buy? Let’s take a look at Cerillion’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if the opportunity still exists.

Is Cerillion still cheap?

Great news for investors – Cerillion is still trading at a fairly cheap price. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is £3.11, but it is currently trading at UK£2.00 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. Although, there may be another chance to buy again in the future. This is because Cerillion’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.

Can we expect growth from Cerillion?

AIM:CER Past and Future Earnings April 9th 2020

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. Cerillion’s revenue growth are expected to be in the teens in the upcoming years, indicating a solid future ahead. Unless expenses grow at the same level, or higher, this top-line growth should lead to robust cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Since CER is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase 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 CER 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 CER. But before you make any investment decisions, consider other factors such as the track record of its management team, in order to make a well-informed buy.
