A8N is an attractive stock for growth-seeking investors, with an expected earnings growth of 31% in the upcoming year underlying the notable 53% return on equity over the next few years leading up to 2022. A8N 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 A8N’s projected earnings trajectory does follow analyst consensus growth, which determines my intrinsic value of the company. Compared to the rest of the hospitality industry, A8N is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This bolsters the proposition that A8N’s price is currently discounted.
