Good value with proven track record

TOL’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 suggests prudent control over cash and cost by management, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. Debt funding requires timely payments on interest to lenders. TOL’s earnings sufficiently covered its interest in the prior year, which indicates there’s low risk associated with the company not being able to meet these key expenses.

TOL’s shares are now trading at a price below its true value based on its discounted cash flows, indicating a relatively pessimistic market sentiment. According to my intrinsic value of the stock, which is driven by analyst consensus forecast of TOL’s earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Compared to the rest of the consumer durables industry, TOL is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This supports the theory that TOL is potentially underpriced.
