Recent undervalued companies based on their current market price include Detroit Legal News and Instructivision. Investors can profit from the difference by investing in these stocks as the current market prices should eventually move towards their true values. If capital gains are what you’re after in your next investment, I’ve put together a list of undervalued stocks you may be interested in, based on the latest financial data from each company.

The Detroit Legal News Company provides sheet fed commercial printing services to customers located in southeastern Michigan. Detroit Legal News was founded in 1898 and has a market cap of USD $15.01M, putting it in the small-cap category.

DTRL’s stock is currently hovering at around -46% under its intrinsic value of $736.71, at a price tag of $395, based on my discounted cash flow model. This difference in price and value gives us a chance to buy low. What’s even more appeal is that DTRL’s PE ratio stands at 15x relative to its media peer level of 18.4x, meaning that relative to its comparable set of companies, DTRL’s shares can be purchased for a lower price. DTRL is also robust in terms of financial health, with current assets covering liabilities in the near term and over the long run. DTRL has zero debt on its books as well, meaning it has no long term debt obligations to worry about. More detail on Detroit Legal News here.
