Tahoe Resources Inc (NYSE: TAHO), a materials company with a market capitalization of $1.5 billion, saw its share price increase by 19.8% over the last month. As a small-cap stock, hardly covered by analysts, there is generally more of an opportunity for mispricing as there is less activity to push the stock closer to fair value. However, could the stock still be trading at a relatively cheap price? Let’s take a look at Tahoe Resources' outlook and value based on its most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.

Tahoe Resources' share price also seems relatively stable compared to the rest of the market, as indicated by its low beta. If you believe the share price should eventually reach its true value, a low beta could suggest it is unlikely to rapidly do so anytime soon, and once it’s there, it may be hard to fall back down into an attractive buying range.
What Does The Future Of Tahoe Resources Look Like?

With Tahoe Resources' relatively muted top-line growth of 2.6% expected over the next five years on average, growth doesn’t seem like a key catalyst for a buying decision. At least not in the short to medium-term, unfortunately.
How This Impacts Investors
Although the company's expected future growth is relatively low, shares of Tahoe Resources still appear to be trading at a steep discount to its intrinsic value. Therefore, it may be a great time to purchase the stock or add more to your holdings.
