GeoPark Limited (NYSE:GPRK): A Fundamentally Attractive Investment

Simply Wall St

GeoPark Limited (NYSE:GPRK) is a stock with outstanding fundamental characteristics. When we build an investment case, we need to look at the stock with a holistic perspective. In the case of GPRK, it is a company with a buoyant future outlook, which has not yet been factored into the price. Below, I've touched on some key aspects you should know on a high level. For those interested in digger a bit deeper into my commentary, take a look at the report on GeoPark here.

High growth potential and good value

One reason why investors are attracted to GPRK is its earnings growth potential in the near future of 25% underlying the notable 43% return on equity over the next few years leading up to 2022. GPRK is currently trading below its true value, which means the market is undervaluing the company's expected cash flow going forward. According to my intrinsic value of the stock, which is driven by analyst consensus forecast of GPRK's earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Compared to the rest of the market, GPRK is also trading below other listed companies on the US stock exchange, relative to earnings generated. This further reaffirms that GPRK is potentially undervalued.
