February Best Undervalued Stocks

Gabriel Boyd

Stocks recently deemed undervalued include Bel Fuse and NACCO Industries, as they trade at a market price below their true valuations. There’s a few ways you can value a company. The most popular methods include discounting the company’s cash flows it is expected to create in the future, or comparing its price to its peers or the value of its assets. Analysing the most recent financial data, I’ve created a list of companies that compare favourably in all criteria, making them potentially good investments.

Bel Fuse Inc. (NASDAQ:BELF.B)

Bel Fuse Inc. designs, manufactures, markets, and sells products that are used in the networking, telecommunication, high-speed data transmission, commercial aerospace, military, broadcasting, transportation, and consumer electronic industries worldwide. Established in 1949, and now run by Daniel Bernstein, the company size now stands at 7,694 people and with the company’s market capitalisation at USD $232.39M, we can put it in the small-cap category.

BELF.B’s shares are currently floating at around -43% beneath its true level of $32.72, at the market price of $18.65, according to my discounted cash flow model. This mismatch indicates a chance to invest in BELF.B at a discounted price. Furthermore, BELF.B’s PE ratio stands at 18.3x while its electronic peer level trades at 21.8x, suggesting that relative to other stocks in the industry, you can buy BELF.B for a cheaper price. BELF.B is also a financially robust company, with near-term assets able to cover upcoming and long-term liabilities.
