Sunex SA (WSE:SNX): A Fundamentally Attractive Investment

Mary Ramos

Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I’ve chosen to put the spotlight on Sunex SA (WSE:SNX) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. SNX 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 high-level commentary, read the full report on Sunex here.

Undervalued with excellent balance sheet

With a debt-to-equity ratio of 11.45%, SNX’s debt level is acceptable. This means that SNX’s capital structure strikes a good balance between low-cost debt funding and maintaining financial flexibility without overly restrictive terms of debt. SNX appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 0.56x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated. SNX’s shares are now trading at a price below its true value based on its discounted cash flows, indicating a relatively pessimistic market sentiment. 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 semiconductor industry, SNX is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This supports the theory that SNX is potentially underpriced.
