Should You Consider AMCON Distributing Company (NYSEMKT:DIT)?

I’ve been keeping an eye on AMCON Distributing Company (NYSEMKT:DIT) because I’m attracted to its fundamentals.

Basically, it is a company that has been able to sustain great financial health, trading at an attractive share price. In the following section, I expand a bit more on these key aspects. If you’re interested in understanding beyond my broad commentary, read the full report on AMCON Distributing here.

Flawless balance sheet and undervalued

DIT 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 a crucial insight into the health of the company. DIT seems to have put its debt to good use, generating operating cash levels of 1.37x total debt in the most recent year. This is also a good indication as to whether debt is properly covered by the company’s cash flows. DIT’s share price is trading at below its true value, meaning that the market sentiment for the stock is currently bearish. 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. Compared to the rest of the retail distributors industry, DIT is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This bolsters the proposition that DIT’s price is currently discounted.
