Flawless balance sheet and good value

GBT’s ability to maintain an adequate level of cash to meet upcoming liabilities is a good sign for its financial health. This suggests prudent control over cash and cost by management, which is a crucial insight into the health of the company. GBT 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. GBT’s share price is trading at below its true value, meaning that the market sentiment for the stock is currently bearish. According to my intrinsic value of the stock, which is driven by analyst consensus forecast of GBT’s earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Compared to the rest of the it industry, GBT is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This bolsters the proposition that GBT’s price is currently discounted.
