Indonesia’s economy today still so-so, indicated by real retail sales that has been published by Bank of Indonesia. So for a safe bet, we better put the stock on a company that has less than one beta. It’s mean that the company will perform okay in not-so-good economic condition. Many toll road companies have less than one beta, so it is perfect for our safe bet today.
When we invest let’s be honest, we want to spend less money to get more money. So we want undervalued stock that will generate income in the future. To identifying it we can use some ratio and compare it with other companies in the same sector.

Valuation of CMNP
Using historical data, I have built the financial model of CMNP. For the detail, you can download it here. I get the value of Rp 3.181 by using DCF and value of Rp 6.413 using P/E price multiple (using industry average P/R).
I choose just using the value from DCF because it seems more sensible when compared to the price nowadays (about Rp. 1.700). Because I think I must put a healthy amount of skepticism in management I put margin of safety 50% from the value. So when the price drops the stock still valuable.
Derive from that I get target price of Rp 1.590 (Rp 3.181*50%).
Today (09/08/2016) the closing price is Rp 1.760.
