I've been keeping an eye on Enel SpA (BIT:ENEL) because I'm attracted to its fundamentals. Looking at the company as a whole, as a potential stock investment, I believe ENEL has a lot to offer. Basically, it is a well-regarded dividend-paying company that has been a rockstar for income investors, currently trading at an attractive share price. Below is a brief commentary on these key aspects. For those interested in digger a bit deeper into my commentary, read the full report on Enel here.

Good value average dividend payer

ENEL'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 ENEL's earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Compared to the rest of the electric utilities industry, ENEL is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This bolsters the proposition that ENEL's price is currently discounted.
