Flawless balance sheet and undervalued

YRD'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 YRD'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, YRD's share price is trading below the group's average. This bolsters the proposition that YRD's price is currently discounted.
