Very undervalued with flawless balance sheet

CAPR’s share price is trading at below its true value, meaning that the market sentiment for the stock is currently bearish. Investors have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains, if CAPR’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, CAPR’s share price is trading below the group’s average. This bolsters the proposition that CAPR’s price is currently discounted.
