6 star dividend payer and good value

DPW is currently trading below its true value, which means the market is undervaluing the company’s expected cash flow going forward. This mispricing gives investors the opportunity to buy into the stock at a cheap price compared to the value they will be receiving, should analysts’ consensus forecast growth be correct. Compared to the rest of the logistics industry, DPW is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This bolsters the proposition that DPW’s price is currently discounted.
