Excellent balance sheet and good value

ARTX’s share price is trading at below its true value, meaning that the market sentiment for the stock is currently bearish. Investors have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains, if ARTX’s projected earnings trajectory does follow analyst consensus growth, which determines my intrinsic value of the company. Also, relative to the rest of ARTX’s peers, it is also trading at a value below those of similar sizes in asset terms. This bolsters the proposition that ARTX’s price is currently discounted.
