At US$33.84, Is It Time To Put Flowserve Corporation (NYSE:FLS) On Your Watch List?

·3 min read

Flowserve Corporation (NYSE:FLS), is not the largest company out there, but it saw a significant share price rise of over 20% in the past couple of months on the NYSE. With many analysts covering the mid-cap stock, we may expect any price-sensitive announcements have already been factored into the stock’s share price. But what if there is still an opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at Flowserve’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if the opportunity still exists.

What Is Flowserve Worth?

According to my valuation model, Flowserve seems to be fairly priced at around 15% below my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Flowserve today, you’d be paying a reasonable price for it. And if you believe the company’s true value is $40.04, then there’s not much of an upside to gain from mispricing. Is there another opportunity to buy low in the future? Since Flowserve’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.

What does the future of Flowserve look like?

Investors looking for growth in their portfolio may want to consider the prospects of a company before buying its shares. 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. In Flowserve's case, its earnings over the next year are expected to double, indicating an incredibly optimistic future ahead. This should lead to stronger cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.

What This Means For You

Are you a shareholder? It seems like the market has already priced in FLS’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 financial strength of the company. Have these factors changed since the last time you looked at the stock? Will you have enough conviction to buy should the price fluctuates below the true value?

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on FLS, now may not be the most optimal time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value. However, the optimistic prospect is encouraging for the company, which means it’s worth further examining other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
