What's the opportunity in MEG?

Good news, investors! MEG is still a bargain right now. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $18.67 which is above what the market is valuing the company at the moment. This indicates a potential opportunity to buy low. However, given that MEG’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 MEG?
