Why Crown Crafts, Inc. (NASDAQ:CRWS) Could Be Your Next Investment

Jonathon Baker

Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I’ve chosen to put the spotlight on Crown Crafts, Inc. (NASDAQ:CRWS) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. CRWS is a company that has been able to sustain great financial health, trading at an attractive share price. Below is a brief commentary on these key aspects. For those interested in understanding where the figures come from and want to see the analysis, read the full report on Crown Crafts here.

Undervalued with excellent balance sheet

CRWS’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 CRWS manages its cash and cost levels well, which is a key determinant of the company’s health. CRWS appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 0.66x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated. CRWS’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 CRWS’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, CRWS’s share price is trading below the group’s average. This supports the theory that CRWS is potentially underpriced.
