As an investor, I look for investments which does not compromise one fundamental factor for another. By this I mean, I look at stocks holistically, from their financial health to their future outlook. In the case of Ramaco Resources, Inc. (NASDAQ:METC), it is a company that has been able to sustain great financial health, trading at an attractive share price. Below is a brief commentary on these key aspects. For those interested in understanding where the figures come from and want to see the analysis, read the full report on Ramaco Resources here.

Excellent balance sheet and good value

METC's ability to maintain an adequate level of cash to meet upcoming liabilities is a good sign for its financial health. This suggests prudent control over cash and cost by management, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. METC seems to have put its debt to good use, generating operating cash levels of 1.43x total debt in the most recent year. This is also a good indication as to whether debt is properly covered by the company’s cash flows. METC's share price is trading at below its true value, meaning that the market sentiment for the stock is currently bearish. According to my intrinsic value of the stock, which is driven by analyst consensus forecast of METC's earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Also, relative to the rest of its peers with similar levels of earnings, METC's share price is trading below the group's average. This supports the theory that METC is potentially underpriced.
