I've been keeping an eye on Innoviva, Inc. (NASDAQ:INVA) because I'm attracted to its fundamentals. Looking at the company as a whole, as a potential stock investment, I believe INVA has a lot to offer. Basically, it is a company with an impressive track record of performance, trading at a great value. Below, I've touched on some key aspects you should know on a high level. For those interested in digging a bit deeper into my commentary, read the full report on Innoviva here.

Solid track record and good value

In the past couple of years, INVA has ramped up its bottom line by over 100%, with its latest earnings level surpassing its average level over the last five years. Not only did INVA outperformed its past performance, its growth also surpassed the Pharmaceuticals industry expansion, which generated a 40% earnings growth. This is an notable feat for the company. INVA'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 INVA's projected earnings trajectory does follow analyst consensus growth, which determines my intrinsic value of the company. Also, relative to the rest of its peers with similar levels of earnings, INVA's share price is trading below the group's average. This supports the theory that INVA is potentially underpriced.
