Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I've chosen to put the spotlight on Ebix, Inc. (NASDAQ:EBIX) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. EBIX is a company with a buoyant growth outlook, which has not yet been reflected in the 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, take a look at the report on Ebix here.

Very undervalued with reasonable growth potential

Investors in search for stocks with room to flourish should look no further than EBIX, with its expected earinngs growth of 26%, bolstered by its impressive cash-generating ability, as analysts predict its operating cash flows will rise by 69% over the same time period. This is a sustainable driver of high-quality earnings, as opposed to pure cost-cutting activities. EBIX'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 EBIX's projected earnings trajectory does follow analyst consensus growth, which determines my intrinsic value of the company. Also, relative to the rest of its peers with similar levels of earnings, EBIX's share price is trading below the group's average. This further reaffirms that EBIX is potentially undervalued.
