Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I've chosen to put the spotlight on NetSol Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:NTWK) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. NTWK is a financially-robust company with an impressive history of performance, trading at a great value. Below is a brief commentary on these key aspects. For those interested in digging a bit deeper into my commentary, read the full report on NetSol Technologies here.
Very undervalued with solid track record
In the past couple of years, NTWK has ramped up its bottom line by over 100%, with its latest earnings level surpassing its average level over the last five years. Not only did NTWK outperformed its past performance, its growth also exceeded the Software industry expansion, which generated a 22% earnings growth. This is an optimistic signal for the future. NTWK'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 indicates that NTWK has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is a key determinant of the company’s health. NTWK appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 1.5x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated.
NTWK 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 NTWK'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, NTWK's share price is trading below the group's average. This bolsters the proposition that NTWK's price is currently discounted.
