Very undervalued with adequate balance sheet
3996's ability to maintain an adequate level of cash to meet upcoming liabilities is a good sign for its financial health. This indicates that 3996 has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is a key determinant of the company’s health. Debt funding requires timely payments on interest to lenders. 3996’s earnings sufficiently covered its interest in the prior year, which indicates there’s low risk associated with the company not being able to meet these key expenses. 3996'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 3996's earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Also, relative to the rest of its peers with similar levels of earnings, 3996's share price is trading below the group's average.
