Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I've chosen to put the spotlight on The Interpublic Group of Companies, Inc. (NYSE:IPG) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. IPG is a notable dividend payer that has been a rockstar for income investors, currently trading at an attractive share price. In the following section, I expand a bit more on these key aspects. For those interested in digger a bit deeper into my commentary, take a look at the report on Interpublic Group of Companies here.

Good value average dividend payer

IPG 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 IPG's earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Compared to the rest of the media industry, IPG is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This supports the theory that IPG is potentially underpriced.
