Undervalued with excellent balance sheet

1627 is financially robust, with ample cash on hand and short-term investments to meet upcoming liabilities. This implies that 1627 manages its cash and cost levels well, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. 1627 seems to have put its debt to good use, generating operating cash levels of 68.32x total debt in the most recent year. This is also a good indication as to whether debt is properly covered by the company’s cash flows. 1627 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 construction industry, 1627 is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This further reaffirms that 1627 is potentially undervalued.
