Flawless balance sheet and good value

NLM’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, NLM’s share price is trading below the group’s average. This bolsters the proposition that NLM’s price is currently discounted.
