While CVS Group plc (LON:CVSG) might not be the most widely known stock at the moment, it saw a significant share price rise of over 20% in the past couple of months on the AIM. 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. However, what if the stock is still a bargain? Let’s take a look at CVS Group’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if the opportunity still exists.

What's the opportunity in CVS Group?

The stock seems fairly valued at the moment according to my valuation model. It’s trading around 17.31% above my intrinsic value, which means if you buy CVS Group today, you’d be paying a relatively reasonable price for it. And if you believe that the stock is really worth £20.93, then there isn’t really any room for the share price grow beyond what it’s currently trading. What's more, CVS Group’s share price may be more stable over time (relative to the market), as indicated by its low beta.

What does the future of CVS Group look like?

Future outlook is an important aspect when you’re looking at buying a stock, especially if you are an investor looking for growth in your portfolio. 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. With profit expected to more than double over the next couple of years, the future seems bright for CVS Group. It looks like higher cash flow is on the cards for the stock, which should feed into a higher share valuation.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? It seems like the market has already priced in CVSG’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 confidence to invest in the company should the price drop below its fair value?

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping tabs on CVSG, now may not be the most advantageous 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 diving deeper into other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to take advantage of the next price drop.

So while earnings quality is important, it's equally important to consider the risks facing CVS Group at this point in time. For example - CVS Group has 1 warning sign we think you should be aware of.
