Is It Time To Consider Buying PropNex Limited (SGX:OYY)?

While PropNex Limited (SGX:OYY) might not have the largest market cap around , it saw its share price hover around a small range of S$0.86 to S$0.94 over the last few weeks. But is this actually reflective of the share value of the small-cap? Or is it currently undervalued, providing us with the opportunity to buy?

What's The Opportunity In PropNex?

According to our price multiple model, which makes a comparison between the company's price-to-earnings ratio and the industry average, the stock price seems to be justfied. We’ve used the price-to-earnings ratio in this instance because there’s not enough visibility to forecast its cash flows. The stock’s ratio of 13.62x is currently trading slightly below its industry peers’ ratio of 14.89x, which means if you buy PropNex today, you’d be paying a reasonable price for it. And if you believe that PropNex should be trading at this level in the long run, then there’s not much of an upside to gain over and above other industry peers. Furthermore, it seems like PropNex’s share price is quite stable, which means there may be less chances to buy low in the future now that it’s priced similarly to industry peers. This is because the stock is less volatile than the wider market given its low beta.

What does the future of PropNex 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. PropNex's earnings growth are expected to be in the teens in the upcoming years, indicating a solid future ahead. This should lead to robust 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 OYY’s positive outlook, with shares trading around industry price multiples. 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 OYY? Will you have enough conviction to buy should the price fluctuate below the industry PE ratio?
