Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I've chosen to put the spotlight on Sunstone Hotel Investors, Inc. (NYSE:SHO) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. SHO is a highly-regarded dividend-paying company with a great history of performance, trading at a discount. Below is a brief commentary on these key aspects. For those interested in digging a bit deeper into my commentary, read the full report on Sunstone Hotel Investors here.

Good value with proven track record and pays a dividend

Over the past few years, SHO has more than doubled its earnings, with its most recent figure exceeding its annual average over the past five years. In addition to beating its historical values, SHO also outperformed its industry, which delivered a growth of 17%. This is what investors like to see! SHO's share price is trading at below its true value, meaning that the market sentiment for the stock is currently bearish. 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 real estate industry, SHO is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This bolsters the proposition that SHO's price is currently discounted.
