Callon Petroleum Company (NYSE:CPE) is a company with exceptional fundamental characteristics. Upon building up an investment case for a stock, we should look at various aspects. In the case of CPE, it is a company with a a strong track record of performance, trading at a discount. In the following section, I expand a bit more on these key aspects. For those interested in digger a bit deeper into my commentary, take a look at the report on Callon Petroleum here.

Very undervalued with solid track record

In the past couple of years, CPE has ramped up its bottom line by over 100%, with its latest earnings level surpassing its average level over the last five years. In addition to beating its historical values, CPE also outperformed its industry, which delivered a growth of 37%. This is an optimistic signal for the future. CPE 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 CPE's projected earnings trajectory does follow analyst consensus growth, which determines my intrinsic value of the company. Compared to the rest of the oil and gas industry, CPE is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This bolsters the proposition that CPE's price is currently discounted.
