How much is the Nse: Fconsumer worth?
According to my relative valuation classical, the stock is currently overvalued. In this case, I used the price-to-book (PB) ratio because there isn’t enough information to forecast the stock’s cash flows reliably, and its earnings don’t reflect its actual value. I consider the Future Consumer ratio of 10.71x above the comparative average of 2.33x, suggesting that stocks are overvalue relative to the food industry. Also, Future Consumer’s stock price appears to be pretty stable, which could mean two things: first, it could take a while for the stock price to fall back into an attractive buying range, and second, the chances of buying low in the Future could be reduc once it has reach this value. The stock is less volatile than the broader market due to its low beta.
