Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I’ve chosen to put the spotlight on SpartanNash Company (NASDAQ:SPTN) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. SPTN is a well-regarded dividend-paying company that has been a rockstar for income investors, currently trading at an attractive share price. In the following section, I expand a bit more on these key aspects. If you’re interested in understanding beyond my high-level commentary, read the full report on SpartanNash here.

6 star dividend payer and undervalued

SPTN’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 SPTN’s earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Compared to the rest of the consumer retailing industry, SPTN is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This bolsters the proposition that SPTN’s price is currently discounted.
