Trimble Inc.

What's the opportunity in Trimble?

Great news for investors – Trimble is still trading at a fairly cheap price. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is $97.23, which is above what the market is valuing the company at the moment. This indicates a potential opportunity to buy low. However, given that Trimble’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.

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. However, with a relatively muted profit growth of 4.1% expected over the next year, growth doesn’t seem like a key driver for a buy decision for Trimble, at least in the short term.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Even though growth is relatively muted, since TRMB is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to accumulate more of your holdings in the stock. However, there are also other factors such as financial health to consider, which could explain the current undervaluation.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on TRMB for a while, now might be the time to make a leap. Its future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy TRMB. But before you make any investment decisions, consider other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to make a well-informed investment decision.
