Why SandRidge Permian Trust (NYSE:PER) Could Be Your Next Investment

Michael Crabtree

I’ve been keeping an eye on SandRidge Permian Trust (NYSE:PER) because I’m attracted to its fundamentals. Looking at the company as a whole, as a potential stock investment, I believe PER has a lot to offer. Basically, it 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 SandRidge Permian Trust here.

Undervalued with excellent balance sheet

Looking at PER’s capital structure, the company has no debt on its balance sheet. This means it is running its business only on equity capital funding, which is typically normal for a small-cap company. PER has plenty of financial flexibility, without debt obligations to meet in the short term, as well as the headroom to raise debt should it need to in the future. PER 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 oil and gas industry, PER is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This further reaffirms that PER is potentially undervalued.
