Flawless balance sheet and undervalued

METN’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 a crucial insight into the health of the company. METN appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 61.29x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated. METN is currently trading below its true value, which means the market is undervaluing the company’s expected cash flow going forward. Investors have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains, if METN’s projected earnings trajectory does follow analyst consensus growth, which determines my intrinsic value of the company. Compared to the rest of the market, METN is also trading below other listed companies on the CH stock exchange, relative to earnings generated. This bolsters the proposition that METN’s price is currently discounted.
