Hohes Kurspotenzial: „Attraktiver „Value-add“-Immobilienspezialist

Die Coreo AG führt derzeit eine Bezugsrechtskapitalerhöhung durch, in deren Rahmen ein Bruttoemissionserlös von bis zu 16 Mio. € angestrebt wird. Der Liquiditätserlös soll zum Erwerb von Gewerbe- und Wohnimmobilien für den Geschäftsbereich „Value Add“ verwendet werden. Derzeit, also pre money, verfügt die Gesellschaft über ein prognostiziertes NAV (auf Grundlage von GBC-Berechnungen) von 2,40 €. Für das laufende und kommende Geschäftsjahr rechnen wir mit einem spürbaren Ertrags- und Ergebnisanstieg. Neben der Steigerung von Mieterträgen sollte die Gesellschaft im nennenswerten Umfang Veräußerungserlöse erzielen sowie stille Reserven aufdecken. Auf Basis unseres DCF-Bewertungsmodells (post money) haben wir ein Kursziel von 3,10 € ermittelt. Auf Basis des aktuellen Kurses sowie des Platzierungspreises im Rahmen der Kapitalerhöhung von 1,60 € je Aktie lautet unserer Einschätzung KAUFEN.“
