AMCON Distributing Company (NYSEMKT:DIT) 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 DIT, it is a company that has been able to sustain great financial health, trading at an attractive share price. Below, I've touched on some key aspects you should know on a high level. If you're interested in understanding beyond my broad commentary, read the full report on AMCON Distributing here.

Flawless balance sheet and undervalued

DIT is financially robust, with ample cash on hand and short-term investments to meet upcoming liabilities. This suggests prudent control over cash and cost by management, which is a key determinant of the company’s health. DIT's has produced operating cash levels of 1.37x total debt over the past year, which implies that DIT's management has put its borrowings into good use by generating enough cash to cover a sufficient portion of borrowings. DIT 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 DIT's earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Compared to the rest of the retail distributors industry, DIT is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This supports the theory that DIT is potentially underpriced.
