China Everbright Water Limited (SGX:U9E) is a company with exceptional fundamental characteristics. Upon building up an investment case for a stock, we should look at various aspects. In the case of U9E, it is a company with a a great track record of performance, trading at a great value. Below is a brief commentary on these key aspects. For those interested in digger a bit deeper into my commentary, take a look at the report on China Everbright Water here.

Solid track record and good value

Over the past year, U9E has grown its earnings by 32%, with its most recent figure exceeding its annual average over the past five years. In addition to beating its historical values, U9E also outperformed its industry, which delivered a growth of 11%. This is what investors like to see! U9E is currently trading below its true value, which means the market is undervaluing the company’s expected cash flow going forward. 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 SG companies with similar levels of earnings, U9E’s share price is trading below the group’s average. This bolsters the proposition that U9E’s price is currently discounted.
