Very undervalued with excellent balance sheet

Investors in search for stocks with room to flourish should look no further than NESR, with its expected earinngs growth of 30%, bolstered by its outstanding cash-generating ability, as analysts predict its operating cash flows will more than double over the same time period. This is a sustainable driver of high-quality earnings, as opposed to pure cost-cutting activities. NESR's shares are now trading at a price below its true value based on its discounted cash flows, indicating a relatively pessimistic market sentiment. According to my intrinsic value of the stock, which is driven by analyst consensus forecast of NESR's earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Compared to the rest of the energy services industry, NESR is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This further reaffirms that NESR is potentially undervalued.
