Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I've chosen to put the spotlight on Stock Spirits Group PLC (LON:STCK) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. STCK is a company that has been able to sustain great financial health, 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 broad commentary, read the full report on Stock Spirits Group here.

Flawless balance sheet and good value

STCK's strong financial health means that all of its upcoming liability payments are able to be met by its current cash and short-term investment holdings. This implies that STCK manages its cash and cost levels well, which is a crucial insight into the health of the company. STCK seems to have put its debt to good use, generating operating cash levels of 0.64x total debt in the most recent year. This is also a good indication as to whether debt is properly covered by the company’s cash flows. STCK is currently trading below its true value, which means the market is undervaluing the company's expected cash flow going forward. According to my intrinsic value of the stock, which is driven by analyst consensus forecast of STCK's earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Also, relative to the rest of its peers with similar levels of earnings, STCK's share price is trading below the group's average. This supports the theory that STCK is potentially underpriced.
