Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I've chosen to put the spotlight on Cardinal Energy Ltd. (TSE:CJ) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. CJ is a company that has been able to sustain great financial health, trading at an attractive share price. Below, I've touched on some key aspects you should know on a high level. For those interested in understanding where the figures come from and want to see the analysis, read the full report on Cardinal Energy here.

Undervalued with adequate balance sheet

CJ is financially robust, with ample cash on hand and short-term investments to meet upcoming liabilities. This indicates that CJ has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is a crucial insight into the health of the company. CJ seems to have put its debt to good use, generating operating cash levels of 0.34x total debt in the most recent year. This is also a good indication as to whether debt is properly covered by the company’s cash flows. CJ is currently trading below its true value, which means the market is undervaluing the company's expected cash flow going forward. This mispricing gives investors the opportunity to buy into the stock at a cheap price compared to the value they will be receiving, should analysts' consensus forecast growth be correct. Also, relative to the rest of its peers with similar levels of earnings, CJ's share price is trading below the group's average. This further reaffirms that CJ is potentially undervalued.
