Undervalued with excellent balance sheet

STP’s strong financial health means that all of its upcoming liability payments are able to be met by its current cash and short-term investment holdings. This suggests prudent control over cash and cost by management, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. STP seems to have put its debt to good use, generating operating cash levels of 0.56x total debt in the most recent year. This is also a good indication as to whether debt is properly covered by the company’s cash flows. STP is currently trading below its true value, which means the market is undervaluing the company’s expected cash flow going forward. This mispricing gives investors the opportunity to buy into the stock at a cheap price compared to the value they will be receiving, should analysts’ consensus forecast growth be correct. Compared to the rest of the metals and mining industry, STP is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This bolsters the proposition that STP’s price is currently discounted.
