Undervalued with excellent balance sheet

CRWS is financially robust, with ample cash on hand and short-term investments to meet upcoming liabilities. This indicates that CRWS has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. CRWS’s has produced operating cash levels of 2.32x total debt over the past year, which implies that CRWS’s management has put its borrowings into good use by generating enough cash to cover a sufficient portion of borrowings. CRWS’s shares are now trading at a price below its true value based on its discounted cash flows, indicating a relatively pessimistic market sentiment. According to my intrinsic value of the stock, which is driven by analyst consensus forecast of CRWS’s earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Also, relative to the rest of its peers with similar levels of earnings, CRWS’s share price is trading below the group’s average. This further reaffirms that CRWS is potentially undervalued.
