A Look At China Yuchai International Limited's (NYSE:CYD) Exceptional Fundamentals

Simply Wall St

I've been keeping an eye on China Yuchai International Limited (NYSE:CYD) because I'm attracted to its fundamentals. Looking at the company as a whole, as a potential stock investment, I believe CYD has a lot to offer. Basically, it is a financially-healthy company with a a strong track record high-grade dividend payments, trading at a great value. 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, take a look at the report on China Yuchai International here.

Very undervalued with flawless balance sheet and pays a dividend

CYD 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 crucial insight into the health of the company. CYD's has produced operating cash levels of 0.84x total debt over the past year, which implies that CYD's management has put its borrowings into good use by generating enough cash to cover a sufficient portion of borrowings. CYD is currently trading below its true value, which means the market is undervaluing the company's expected cash flow going forward. Investors have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains, if CYD's projected earnings trajectory does follow analyst consensus growth, which determines my intrinsic value of the company. Also, relative to the rest of its peers with similar levels of earnings, CYD's share price is trading below the group's average. This supports the theory that CYD is potentially underpriced.
