Why Fundamental Investors Might Love Triad Group plc (LON:TRD)

Simply Wall St

Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I've chosen to put the spotlight on Triad Group plc (LON:TRD) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. TRD is a company that has been able to sustain great financial health, trading at an attractive share price. Below, I've touched on some key aspects you should know on a high level. For those interested in digger a bit deeper into my commentary, read the full report on Triad Group here.

Flawless balance sheet and undervalued

TRD is financially robust, with ample cash on hand and short-term investments to meet upcoming liabilities. This indicates that TRD has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is a crucial insight into the health of the company. TRD appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 101x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated. TRD's shares are now trading at a price below its true value based on its discounted cash flows, indicating a relatively pessimistic market sentiment. 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 it industry, TRD is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This bolsters the proposition that TRD's price is currently discounted.
