Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I've chosen to put the spotlight on Allegheny Technologies Incorporated (NYSE:ATI) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. ATI is a company with a strong track record of performance, trading at a discount. In the following section, I expand a bit more on these key aspects. For those interested in digging a bit deeper into my commentary, read the full report on Allegheny Technologies here.
Undervalued with proven track record
In the past couple of years, ATI has ramped up its bottom line by over 100%, with its latest earnings level surpassing its average level over the last five years. In addition to beating its historical values, ATI also outperformed its industry, which delivered a growth of 28%. This is what investors like to see! ATI's share price is trading at below its true value, meaning that the market sentiment for the stock is currently bearish. According to my intrinsic value of the stock, which is driven by analyst consensus forecast of ATI's earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Also, relative to the rest of US companies with similar levels of earnings, ATI's share price is trading below the group's average. This supports the theory that ATI is potentially underpriced.
