What is Liberty Broadband worth?
According to my multiple price model, where I compare the company’s price / earnings ratio to the industry average, the stock currently looks expensive. In this case, I used the price-to-earnings (PE) ratio since there isn’t enough information to reliably forecast the stock’s cash flow. I find Liberty Broadband’s ratio of 77.37x to be higher than its peers average of 11.94x, suggesting that the stock is trading at a higher price than the media industry. If you like the action, you might want to keep an eye out for potential price drops in the future. Since the Liberty Broadband stock price is quite volatile, this could mean that it may fall (or rise even more) in the future, giving us another chance to invest. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator of how the stock is moving relative to the rest of the market.
Can we expect Liberty Broadband to grow?
Investors looking to grow their portfolio may want to consider the prospects of a company before buying its shares. While value investors argue that intrinsic value versus price matters most, a more compelling investment thesis would be high growth potential at a cheap price. With profits expected to more than double over the next two years, the future looks bright for Liberty Broadband. It appears that a higher cash flow is expected for the stock, which should translate into a higher valuation of the stock.
What this means for you:
Are you a shareholder? LBRD.K’s bullish future growth appears to have been factored into the current share price, with stocks trading above industry price multiples. At this current price, shareholders may ask a different question: should I sell? If you think LBRD.K should trade below its current price, sell high and buy it back when its price drops to the industry PE ratio can be profitable. But before you make that decision, check to see if its fundamentals have changed.
Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping your eye on LBRD.K for a while, it might not be the best time to enter stock. The price has exceeded that of its industry peers, which means there is likely to be no more benefit from poor pricing. However, the bullish outlook is encouraging for LBRD.K, which means it is worth exploring other factors in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
