Flawless balance sheet and undervalued

FN 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. FN appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 1.52x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated. FN’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 FN’s projected earnings trajectory does follow analyst consensus growth, which determines my intrinsic value of the company. Compared to the rest of the electronic industry, FN is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This bolsters the proposition that FN’s price is currently discounted.
