Undervalued with adequate balance sheet

MER is financially robust, with ample cash on hand and short-term investments to meet upcoming liabilities. This implies that MER manages its cash and cost levels well, which is a crucial insight into the health of the company. MER’s earnings amply cover its interest expense. Paying interest on time and in full can help the company get favourable debt terms in the future, leading to lower cost of debt and helps MER expand. MER's shares are now trading at a price below its true value based on its discounted cash flows, indicating a relatively pessimistic market sentiment. According to my intrinsic value of the stock, which is driven by analyst consensus forecast of MER's earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Compared to the rest of the building industry, MER is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This bolsters the proposition that MER's price is currently discounted.
