1888'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 1888 manages its cash and cost levels well, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. 1888 seems to have put its debt to good use, generating operating cash levels of 0.6x total debt in the most recent year. This is also a good indication as to whether debt is properly covered by the company’s cash flows. 1888 is currently trading below its true value, which means the market is undervaluing the company's expected cash flow going forward.

Also, relative to the rest of its peers with similar levels of earnings, 1888's share price is trading below the group's average. This supports the theory that 1888 is potentially underpriced.
