Simply Wall St

Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I've chosen to put the spotlight on Prosperous Printing Company Limited (HKG:8385) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. 8385 is a company that has been able to sustain great financial health, trading at an attractive share price. In the following section, I expand a bit more on these key aspects. For those interested in understanding where the figures come from and want to see the analysis, take a look at the report on Prosperous Printing here.

Undervalued with adequate balance sheet

8385 is financially robust, with ample cash on hand and short-term investments to meet upcoming liabilities. This implies that 8385 manages its cash and cost levels well, which is a crucial insight into the health of the company. 8385 seems to have put its debt to good use, generating operating cash levels of 0.22x total debt in the most recent year. This is also a good indication as to whether debt is properly covered by the company’s cash flows. 8385 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 8385's earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Compared to the rest of the commercial services industry, 8385 is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This bolsters the proposition that 8385's price is currently discounted.
