Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I've chosen to put the spotlight on Jayant Agro-Organics Limited (NSE:JAYAGROGN) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. JAYAGROGN is a company that has been able to sustain great financial health, trading at an attractive share price. In the following section, I expand a bit more on these key aspects. If you're interested in understanding beyond my broad commentary, take a look at the report on Jayant Agro-Organics here.
Undervalued with excellent balance sheet
JAYAGROGN is financially robust, with ample cash on hand and short-term investments to meet upcoming liabilities. This suggests prudent control over cash and cost by management, which is a key determinant of the company’s health. JAYAGROGN appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 0.38x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated. JAYAGROGN's share price is trading at below its true value, meaning that the market sentiment for the stock is currently bearish. According to my intrinsic value of the stock, which is driven by analyst consensus forecast of JAYAGROGN's earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Compared to the rest of the materials industry, JAYAGROGN is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This bolsters the proposition that JAYAGROGN's price is currently discounted.
