Brief Commentary On Nextedia S.A.'s (EPA:ALNXT) Fundamentals

Simply Wall St

Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I've chosen to put the spotlight on Nextedia S.A. (EPA:ALNXT) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. ALNXT 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. For those interested in digger a bit deeper into my commentary, take a look at the report on Nextedia here.

Flawless balance sheet and undervalued

ALNXT's strong financial health means that all of its upcoming liability payments are able to be met by its current cash and short-term investment holdings. This indicates that ALNXT has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. ALNXT seems to have put its debt to good use, generating operating cash levels of 0.22x 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. ALNXT'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 ALNXT's earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Compared to the rest of the it industry, ALNXT is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This further reaffirms that ALNXT is potentially undervalued.
