I've been keeping an eye on Giordano International Limited (HKG:709) because I'm attracted to its fundamentals. Looking at the company as a whole, as a potential stock investment, I believe 709 has a lot to offer. Basically, it 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 Giordano International here.

Flawless balance sheet and good value

709's ability to maintain an adequate level of cash to meet upcoming liabilities is a good sign for its financial health. This suggests prudent control over cash and cost by management, which is a crucial insight into the health of the company. 709 appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 1.81x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated. 709's share price is trading at below its true value, meaning that the market sentiment for the stock is currently bearish. Investors have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains, if 709's projected earnings trajectory does follow analyst consensus growth, which determines my intrinsic value of the company. Compared to the rest of the specialty retail industry, 709 is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This supports the theory that 709 is potentially underpriced.
