Looking At Movado Group, Inc. (NYSE:MOV) From All Angles

Simply Wall St

I've been keeping an eye on Movado Group, Inc. (NYSE:MOV) because I'm attracted to its fundamentals. Looking at the company as a whole, as a potential stock investment, I believe MOV has a lot to offer. Basically, it 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 Movado Group here.

Undervalued with excellent balance sheet

MOV's strong financial health means that all of its upcoming liability payments are able to be met by its current cash and short-term investment holdings. This suggests prudent control over cash and cost by management, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. MOV appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 1.28x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated. MOV's shares are now trading at a price below its true value based on its discounted cash flows, indicating a relatively pessimistic market sentiment. According to my intrinsic value of the stock, which is driven by analyst consensus forecast of MOV's earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Compared to the rest of the luxury industry, MOV is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This supports the theory that MOV is potentially underpriced.
