As an investor, I look for investments which do 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 Wai Chi Holdings Company Limited (HKG:1305), it is a company that has been able to sustain great financial health, trading at an attractive share price. Below, I've touched on some key aspects you should know on a high level. If you're interested in understanding beyond my broad commentary, take a look at the report on Wai Chi Holdings here.
Undervalued with excellent balance sheet
1305 is financially robust, with ample cash on hand and short-term investments to meet upcoming liabilities. This implies that 1305 manages its cash and cost levels well, which is a crucial insight into the health of the company. 1305 appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 0.57x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated. 1305 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. Also, relative to the rest of its peers with similar levels of earnings, 1305's share price is trading below the group's average. This bolsters the proposition that 1305's price is currently discounted.
