What’s the opportunity in RIB Software?

According to my valuation model, RIB Software seems to be fairly priced at around 12% below my intrinsic value, which means if you buy RIB Software today, you’d be paying a fair price for it. And if you believe that the stock is really worth €21.61, then there’s not much of an upside to gain from mispricing. Is there another opportunity to buy low in the future? Since RIB Software’s share price is quite volatile, we could potentially see it sink lower (or rise higher) in the future, giving us another chance to buy. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for how much the stock moves relative to the rest of the market.
