Flawless balance sheet and good value

BSET is financially robust, with ample cash on hand and short-term investments to meet upcoming liabilities. This suggests prudent control over cash and cost by management, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. BSET’s has produced operating cash levels of 76.28x total debt over the past year, which implies that BSET’s management has put its borrowings into good use by generating enough cash to cover a sufficient portion of borrowings. BSET is currently trading below its true value, which means the market is undervaluing the company’s expected cash flow going forward. According to my intrinsic value of the stock, which is driven by analyst consensus forecast of BSET’s earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Also, relative to the rest of BSET’s peers, it is also trading at a value below those of similar sizes in asset terms. This supports the theory that BSET is potentially underpriced.
