Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I've chosen to put the spotlight on Greenhill & Co., Inc. (NYSE:GHL) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. GHL is a company with an optimistic growth outlook, which has not yet been priced into the stock. Below is a brief commentary on these key aspects. For those interested in digger a bit deeper into my commentary, read the full report on Greenhill here.

Good value with reasonable growth potential

Investors in search for stocks with room to flourish should look no further than GHL, with its expected earnings growth of 34% underlying the notable 52% return on equity over the next few years leading up to 2022. GHL is currently trading below its true value, which means the market is undervaluing the company's expected cash flow going forward. This mispricing gives investors the opportunity to buy into the stock at a cheap price compared to the value they will be receiving, should analysts' consensus forecast growth be correct. Also, relative to the rest of its peers with similar levels of earnings, GHL's share price is trading below the group's average. This further reaffirms that GHL is potentially undervalued.
