Why Northern Oil and Gas, Inc. (NYSEMKT:NOG) Could Have A Place In Your Portfolio

Simply Wall St

Northern Oil and Gas, Inc. (NYSEMKT:NOG) is a company with exceptional fundamental characteristics. Upon building up an investment case for a stock, we should look at various aspects. In the case of NOG, it is a company with an optimistic future outlook, which has not yet been priced into the stock. In the following section, I expand a bit more on these key aspects. For those interested in digging a bit deeper into my commentary, take a look at the report on Northern Oil and Gas here.

Undervalued with reasonable growth potential

One reason why investors are attracted to NOG is its notable earnings growth potential in the near future of 54%. The optimistic bottom-line growth is supported by an outstanding revenue growth of 60% over the same time period, which indicates that earnings is driven by top-line activity rather than purely unsustainable cost-reduction initiatives. NOG's share price is trading at below its true value, meaning that the market sentiment for the stock is currently bearish. According to my intrinsic value of the stock, which is driven by analyst consensus forecast of NOG's earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Compared to the rest of the oil and gas industry, NOG is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This further reaffirms that NOG is potentially undervalued.
