Why We Think Molina Healthcare, Inc. (NYSE:MOH) Could Be Worth Looking At

Simply Wall St

Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I've chosen to put the spotlight on Molina Healthcare, Inc. (NYSE:MOH) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. MOH is a company with an impressive history of performance, trading at a great value. 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 Molina Healthcare here.

Good value with proven track record

MOH delivered a satisfying double-digit returns of 46% in the most recent year. Not surprisingly, MOH outperformed its industry which returned 13%, giving us more conviction of the company's capacity to drive bottom-line growth going forward. MOH's shares are now trading at a price below its true value based on its discounted cash flows, indicating a relatively pessimistic market sentiment. Investors have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains, if MOH's projected earnings trajectory does follow analyst consensus growth, which determines my intrinsic value of the company. Compared to the rest of the healthcare industry, MOH is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This supports the theory that MOH is potentially underpriced.
