LexinFintech Holdings Ltd (NASDAQ:LX): A Fundamentally Attractive Investment

Jason Fuller

LexinFintech Holdings Ltd (NASDAQ:LX) 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 LX, it is a company with an optimistic growth outlook, which has not yet been factored into the price. 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 LexinFintech Holdings here.

Exceptional growth potential and undervalued

Investors in search of impressive top-line expansion should look no further than LX, with its expected revenue growth to more than double in the upcoming year. This is expected to flow down into an impressive return on equity of 50.9% over the next couple of years. LX’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 LX’s earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Compared to the rest of the consumer finance industry, LX is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This supports the theory that LX is potentially underpriced.
