Excellent balance sheet and good value

8535 is financially robust, with ample cash on hand and short-term investments to meet upcoming liabilities. This suggests prudent control over cash and cost by management, which is a crucial insight into the health of the company. 8535 appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 11.55x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated. 8535 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 construction industry, 8535 is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This supports the theory that 8535 is potentially underpriced.
