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 Rykadan Capital Limited (HKG:2288), it is a financially-sound company with a a great history of performance, trading at a discount. In the following section, I expand a bit more on these key aspects. If you're interested in understanding beyond my broad commentary, take a look at the report on Rykadan Capital here.

Undervalued with solid track record

In the past couple of years, 2288 has ramped up its bottom line by over 100%, with its latest earnings level surpassing its average level over the last five years. This illustrates a strong track record, leading to a satisfying return on equity of 22%, which is an notable feat for the company. 2288's ability to maintain an adequate level of cash to meet upcoming liabilities is a good sign for its financial health. This implies that 2288 manages its cash and cost levels well, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. With a debt-to-equity ratio of 28%, 2288’s debt level is acceptable. This means that 2288’s capital structure strikes a good balance between low-cost debt funding and maintaining financial flexibility without overly restrictive terms of debt.

2288 is currently trading below its true value, which means the market is undervaluing the company's expected cash flow going forward. This mispricing gives investors the opportunity to buy into the stock at a cheap price compared to the value they will be receiving, should analysts' consensus forecast growth be correct. Compared to the rest of the real estate industry, 2288 is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This bolsters the proposition that 2288's price is currently discounted.
