Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I've chosen to put the spotlight on Thor Industries, Inc. (NYSE:THO) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. THO is a financially-healthy company with a a excellent future outlook, not yet priced into the stock. In the following section, I expand a bit more on these key aspects. For those interested in digger a bit deeper into my commentary, read the full report on Thor Industries here.

Flawless balance sheet, undervalued and pays a dividend

THO is currently trading below its true value, which means the market is undervaluing the company's expected cash flow going forward. Investors have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains, if THO's projected earnings trajectory does follow analyst consensus growth, which determines my intrinsic value of the company. Also, relative to the rest of US companies with similar levels of earnings, THO's share price is trading below the group's average. This supports the theory that THO is potentially underpriced.

THO's ability to maintain an adequate level of cash to meet upcoming liabilities is a good sign for its financial health. This indicates that THO has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is a crucial insight into the health of the company. Investors should not worry about THO’s debt levels because the company has none! This implies that the company is running its operations purely on off equity funding. which is rather impressive for a US$3.1b market cap company. THO has plenty of financial flexibility, without debt obligations to meet in the short term, as well as the headroom to raise debt should it need to in the future.
