For those interested in digger a bit deeper into my commentary, read the full report on Tech Data here.

Undervalued with adequate balance sheet

TECD 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. TECD appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 0.57x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated. TECD 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 TECD’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, TECD’s share price is trading below the group’s average. This supports the theory that TECD is potentially underpriced.
