Is It Time To Consider Buying MYR Group Inc. (NASDAQ:MYRG)?

·3 min read

While MYR Group Inc. (NASDAQ:MYRG) might not be the most widely known stock at the moment, it led the NASDAQGS gainers with a relatively large price hike in the past couple of weeks. 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? Let’s take a look at MYR Group’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if the opportunity still exists.

Is MYR Group Still Cheap?

Great news for investors – MYR Group is still trading at a fairly cheap price. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $155.33, but it is currently trading at US$95.05 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. However, given that MYR Group’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.

Can we expect growth from MYR Group?

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 a double-digit 19% over the next couple of years, the outlook is positive for MYR Group. 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 MYRG is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to accumulate more of 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 capital structure to consider, which could explain the current undervaluation.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on MYRG 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 MYRG. 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 buy.
