I've been keeping an eye on Atico Mining Corporation (CVE:ATY) because I'm attracted to its fundamentals. Looking at the company as a whole, as a potential stock investment, I believe ATY has a lot to offer. Basically, it is a company that has been able to sustain great financial health, trading at an attractive share price. Below, I've touched on some key aspects you should know on a high level. If you're interested in understanding beyond my broad commentary, read the full report on Atico Mining here.

Flawless balance sheet and undervalued

ATY'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 ATY manages its cash and cost levels well, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. ATY appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 2.31x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated. ATY's share price is trading at below its true value, meaning that the market sentiment for the stock is currently bearish. Investors have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains, if ATY's projected earnings trajectory does follow analyst consensus growth, which determines my intrinsic value of the company. Also, relative to the rest of its peers with similar levels of earnings, ATY's share price is trading below the group's average. This further reaffirms that ATY is potentially undervalued.
