Very undervalued with reasonable growth potential

TPC’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 TPC’s projected earnings trajectory does follow analyst consensus growth, which determines my intrinsic value of the company. Compared to the rest of the construction industry, TPC is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This supports the theory that TPC is potentially underpriced.

TPC’s earnings sufficiently covered its interest in the prior year, which indicates there’s low risk associated with the company not being able to meet these key expenses.
