Is Now An Opportune Moment To Examine Matthews International Corporation (NASDAQ:MATW)?

·3-min read

While Matthews International Corporation (NASDAQ:MATW) might not be the most widely known stock at the moment, it received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the NASDAQGS over the last few months, increasing to US$32.82 at one point, and dropping to the lows of US$26.56. Some share price movements can give investors a better opportunity to enter into the stock, and potentially buy at a lower price. A question to answer is whether Matthews International's current trading price of US$27.95 reflective of the actual value of the small-cap?

What's The Opportunity In Matthews International?

Good news, investors! Matthews International is still a bargain right now. My valuation model shows that the intrinsic value for the stock is $43.05, which is above what the market is valuing the company at the moment. This indicates a potential opportunity to buy low. Although, there may be another chance to buy again in the future. This is because Matthews International’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.

What kind of growth will Matthews International generate?

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 a relatively muted revenue growth of 0.1% expected in the upcoming year, short term growth doesn’t seem like a key driver for a buy decision for Matthews International.

What This Means For You

Are you a shareholder? Even though growth is relatively muted, since MATW is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase your holdings in the stock. However, there are also other factors such as financial health to consider, which could explain the current undervaluation.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on MATW for a while, now might be the time to enter the stock. Its future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy MATW. 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.
