Simply Wall St

Attractive stocks have exceptional fundamentals. In the case of TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation (NASDAQ:AMTD), there's is a company with an impressive track record of performance, trading at a discount. 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 TD Ameritrade Holding here.

Undervalued with solid track record

Over the past year, AMTD has grown its earnings by 72%, with its most recent figure exceeding its annual average over the past five years. The strong earnings growth is reflected in impressive double-digit 25% return to shareholders, which is an optimistic signal for the future. AMTD'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 AMTD's earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Also, relative to the rest of its peers with similar levels of earnings, AMTD's share price is trading below the group's average. This supports the theory that AMTD is potentially underpriced.
