Best TSX Undervalued Companies

Devin Koller

Asanko Gold and Mackenzie Master Limited Partnership are two of the stocks I have identified as undervalued. This means their current share prices are trading at levels less than what the companies are actually worth. Investors can determine how much a company is worth based on how much money they are expected to make in the future, or compared to the value of their peers. The list I’ve put together below are of stocks that compare favourably on all criteria, which potentially makes them good investments if you believe the price should eventually reflect the stock’s actual value.

Asanko Gold Inc. (TSX:AKG)

Asanko Gold Inc. engages in the exploration, development, and production of gold properties. Formed in 1999, and run by CEO Peter Breese, the company now has 380 employees and with the company’s market capitalisation at CAD CA$217.69M, we can put it in the small-cap category.

AKG’s stock is now hovering at around -73% less than its intrinsic value of $3.82, at the market price of CA$1.03, according to my discounted cash flow model. The mismatch signals a potential chance to invest in AKG at a discounted price.

AKG is also in good financial health, with current assets covering liabilities in the near term and over the long run.
