Is It Time To Consider Buying Smartsheet Inc. (NYSE:SMAR)?

·3 min read

While Smartsheet Inc. (NYSE:SMAR) might not be the most widely known stock at the moment, it received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the NYSE over the last few months, increasing to US$57.45 at one point, and dropping to the lows of US$29.44. 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 Smartsheet's current trading price of US$29.49 reflective of the actual value of the mid-cap? Or is it currently undervalued, providing us with the opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at Smartsheet’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.

What is Smartsheet worth?

Good news, investors! Smartsheet is still a bargain right now. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $46.11, but it is currently trading at US$29.49 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. What’s more interesting is that, Smartsheet’s share price is quite volatile, which gives us more chances to buy since the share price could sink lower (or rise higher) in the future. 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 Smartsheet?

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. However, with an extremely negative double-digit change in profit expected over the next couple of years, near-term growth is certainly not a driver of a buy decision. It seems like high uncertainty is on the cards for Smartsheet, at least in the near future.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Although SMAR is currently undervalued, the adverse prospect of negative growth brings about some degree of risk. Consider whether you want to increase your portfolio exposure to SMAR, or whether diversifying into another stock may be a better move for your total risk and return.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on SMAR for a while, but hesitant on making the leap, I recommend you dig deeper into the stock. Given its current undervaluation, now is a great time to make a decision. But keep in mind the risks that come with negative growth prospects in the future.
