Undervalued with excellent balance sheet and pays a dividend

NAH’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 an important determinant of the company’s health. NAH appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 0.26x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated. NAH’s shares are now trading at a price below its true value based on its discounted cash flows, indicating a relatively pessimistic market sentiment. Investors have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains, if NAH’s projected earnings trajectory does follow analyst consensus growth, which determines my intrinsic value of the company. Also, relative to the rest of its peers with similar levels of earnings, NAH’s share price is trading below the group’s average. This supports the theory that NAH is potentially underpriced.
