Fluor Corporation (NYSE:FLR) is a company with exceptional fundamental characteristics. Upon building up an investment case for a stock, we should look at various aspects. In the case of FLR, it is a highly-regarded dividend payer with an optimistic growth outlook, not yet reflected in the share price. In the following section, I expand a bit more on these key aspects. For those interested in digger a bit deeper into my commentary, read the full report on Fluor here.

Established dividend payer and good value

FLR's shares are now trading at a price below its true value based on its discounted cash flows, indicating a relatively pessimistic market sentiment. 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 FLR's peers, it is also trading at a value below those of similar sizes in asset terms. This further reaffirms that FLR is potentially undervalued.
