At UK£1.18, Is The Gym Group plc (LON:GYM) Worth Looking At Closely?

The Gym Group plc (LON:GYM), might not be a large cap stock, but it saw significant share price movement during recent months on the LSE, rising to highs of UK£2.03 and falling to the lows of UK£1.08. 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 Gym Group's current trading price of UK£1.18 reflective of the actual value of the small-cap? Or is it currently undervalued, providing us with the opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at Gym Group’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.

What Is Gym Group Worth?

The stock seems fairly valued at the moment according to my valuation model. It’s trading around 9.39% above my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Gym Group today, you’d be paying a relatively fair price for it. And if you believe that the stock is really worth £1.08, there’s only an insignificant downside when the price falls to its real value. Is there another opportunity to buy low in the future? Since Gym Group’s share price is quite volatile, we could potentially see it sink lower (or rise higher) in the future, giving us another chance to buy. 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 Gym Group?

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. With revenues expected to grow by 85% over the next couple of years, the future seems bright for Gym Group. If the level of expenses is able to be maintained, 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? It seems like the market has already priced in GYM’s positive outlook, with shares trading around its fair value. However, there are also other important factors which we haven’t considered today, such as the track record of its management team. Have these factors changed since the last time you looked at the stock? Will you have enough confidence to invest in the company should the price drop below its fair value?

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping tabs on GYM, now may not be the most optimal time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value. However, the positive outlook is encouraging for the company, which means it’s worth diving deeper into other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
