As an investor, I look for investments which does not compromise one fundamental factor for another. By this I mean, I look at stocks holistically, from their financial health to their future outlook. In the case of Callaway Golf Company (NYSE:ELY), it is a company that has been able to sustain great financial health, trading at an attractive share price. Below is a brief commentary on these key aspects. If you're interested in understanding beyond my high-level commentary, take a look at the report on Callaway Golf here.

Flawless balance sheet and good value

ELY's ability to maintain an adequate level of cash to meet upcoming liabilities is a good sign for its financial health. This indicates that ELY has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is a crucial insight into the health of the company. ELY appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 8.47x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated. ELY'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 ELY's projected earnings trajectory does follow analyst consensus growth, which determines my intrinsic value of the company. Compared to the rest of the leisure industry, ELY is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This supports the theory that ELY is potentially underpriced.
