Is Outbrain Still Cheap?

Great news for investors – Outbrain is still trading at a fairly cheap price according to our price multiple model, where we compare the company's price-to-earnings ratio to the industry average. In this instance, we’ve used the price-to-earnings (PE) ratio given that there is not enough information to reliably forecast the stock’s cash flows. we find that Outbrain’s ratio of 16.85x is below its peer average of 22.77x, which indicates the stock is trading at a lower price compared to the Interactive Media and Services industry. Although, there may be another chance to buy again in the future. This is because Outbrain’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 This Means For You

Are you a shareholder? Since OB is currently below the industry PE ratio, 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 price multiple.
