Established dividend payer and good value

NUS's ability to maintain an adequate level of cash to meet upcoming liabilities is a good sign for its financial health. This indicates that NUS has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is a crucial insight into the health of the company. NUS's has produced operating cash levels of 0.38x total debt over the past year, which implies that NUS's management has put its borrowings into good use by generating enough cash to cover a sufficient portion of borrowings. NUS 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 NUS's projected earnings trajectory does follow analyst consensus growth, which determines my intrinsic value of the company. Compared to the rest of the personal products industry, NUS is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This supports the theory that NUS is potentially underpriced.
