I’ve been keeping an eye on Atico Mining Corporation (CVE:ATY) because I’m attracted to its fundamentals.

Flawless balance sheet and undervalued

ATY is financially robust, with ample cash on hand and short-term investments to meet upcoming liabilities. This implies that ATY manages its cash and cost levels well, which is a crucial insight into the health of the company. ATY currently has no debt on its balance sheet. This means it is running its business only on equity capital funding, which is typically normal for a small-cap company. Therefore the company has plenty of headroom to grow, and the ability to raise debt should it need to in the future. ATY’s share price is trading at below its true value, meaning that the market sentiment for the stock is currently bearish. 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. Also, relative to the rest of its peers with similar levels of earnings, ATY’s share price is trading below the group’s average. This further reaffirms that ATY is potentially undervalued.
