These Factors Make Husky Energy Inc. (TSE:HSE) An Interesting Investment

Simply Wall St

I've been keeping an eye on Husky Energy Inc. (TSE:HSE) because I'm attracted to its fundamentals. Looking at the company as a whole, as a potential stock investment, I believe HSE 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. 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 Husky Energy here.

Undervalued with adequate balance sheet

HSE'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 implies that HSE manages its cash and cost levels well, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. HSE appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 0.63x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated. HSE is currently trading below its true value, which means the market is undervaluing the company's expected cash flow going forward. Investors have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains, if HSE'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, HSE's share price is trading below the group's average. This further reaffirms that HSE is potentially undervalued.
