Undervalued with excellent balance sheet

RTGZ's ability to maintain an adequate level of cash to meet upcoming liabilities is a good sign for its financial health. This implies that RTGZ manages its cash and cost levels well, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. RTGZ's has produced operating cash levels of 1.69x total debt over the past year, which implies that RTGZ's management has put its borrowings into good use by generating enough cash to cover a sufficient portion of borrowings. RTGZ is currently trading below its true value, which means the market is undervaluing the company's expected cash flow going forward. According to my intrinsic value of the stock, which is driven by analyst consensus forecast of RTGZ'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, RTGZ's share price is trading below the group's average. This supports the theory that RTGZ is potentially underpriced.
