While PGG Wrightson Limited (NZSE:PGW) might not be the most widely known stock at the moment, it saw a decent share price growth in the teens level on the NZSE over the last few months. Less-covered, small caps sees more of an opportunity for mispricing due to the lack of information available to the public, which can be a good thing. So, could the stock still be trading at a low price relative to its actual value? Let's take a look at PGG Wrightson's outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if the opportunity still exists.

What is PGG Wrightson worth?

The stock seems fairly valued at the moment according to my valuation model. It's trading around 7.77% above my intrinsic value, which means if you buy PGG Wrightson today, you'd be paying a relatively fair price for it. And if you believe that the stock is really worth NZ$4.31, there's only an insignificant downside when the price falls to its real value. In addition to this, PGG Wrightson has a low beta, which suggests its share price is less volatile than the wider market.

What kind of growth will PGG Wrightson generate?

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. Though in the case of PGG Wrightson, it is expected to deliver a highly negative earnings growth in the next few years, which doesn't help build up its investment thesis. It appears that risk of future uncertainty is high, at least in the near term.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? PGW seems fairly priced right now, but given the uncertainty from negative returns in the future, this could be the right time to de-risk your portfolio. Is your current exposure to the stock optimal for your total portfolio? And is the opportunity cost of holding a negative-outlook stock too high? Before you make a decision on the stock, take a look at whether its fundamentals have changed.

Are you a potential investor? If you've been keeping tabs on PGW for a while, now may not be the most advantageous time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value. The stock appears to be trading at fair value, which means there's less benefit from mispricing. Furthermore, the negative growth outlook increases the risk of holding the stock. However, there are also other important factors we haven't considered today, which can help gel your views on PGW should the price fluctuate below its true value.

With this in mind, we wouldn't consider investing in a stock unless we had a thorough understanding of the risks. For example, PGG Wrightson has 3 warning signs (and 1 which shouldn't be ignored) we think you should know about.
