These Fundamentals Make Technical Publications Service S.p.A. (BIT:TPS) Truly Worth Looking At

Technical Publications Service S.p.A. (BIT:TPS) is a company with exceptional fundamental characteristics. Upon building up an investment case for a stock, we should look at various aspects. In the case of TPS, it is a financially-robust company with an optimistic future outlook, not yet priced into the stock. Below is a brief commentary on these key aspects. For those interested in digging a bit deeper into my commentary, take a look at the report on Technical Publications Service here.

Undervalued with excellent balance sheet

Investors in search for stocks with room to flourish should look no further than TPS, with its expected earnings growth of 20%. The optimistic bottom-line growth is supported by an outstanding revenue growth of 58% over the same time period, which indicates that earnings is driven by top-line activity rather than purely unsustainable cost-reduction initiatives. TPS’s shares are now trading at a price below its true value based on its discounted cash flows, indicating a relatively pessimistic market sentiment. Investors have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains, if TPS’s projected earnings trajectory does follow analyst consensus growth, which determines my intrinsic value of the company. Also, relative to the rest of its peers with similar levels of earnings, TPS’s share price is trading below the group’s average. This supports the theory that TPS is potentially underpriced.
