Stock markets have bounced around this week – significantly depressed on Monday, with reversed fortunes just 24 hours later. Buying equities on these short-term fluctuations is best left to the professionals but if you are looking for long term investment opportunities we have highlighted three stocks that are trading at below their market value according to Morningstar equity analysts.

Burberry (BRBY)

If you had been savvy enough to invest in Burberry in November 2008 when the shares were worth £1.60 you would have seen your money grow ten times in value. A lot of this share price inflation can be put down to the appointment of Christopher Bailey as head designer in 2009.The Yorkshire-born creative overhauled Burberry’s image and its global revenues. In October 2013 Burberry chief executive Angela Ahrendts left to work for Apple (AAPL) and Bailey took over as chief executive – retaining his position as chief creative officer too. The share price dipped on the news – but stabilised to rise to a peak of £19 in February this year.

But a lot of the global interest Bailey sparked is centred in emerging markets – and in particular Asia. The luxury brand opened a flagship store in Shanghai in April last year with a 1,500-guest party. And so when the Chinese stock market began to lose value earlier this year, so did Burberry’s share price.
