Simply Wall St

I've been keeping an eye on SW Umwelttechnik Stoiser & Wolschner AG (VIE:SWUT) because I'm attracted to its fundamentals. Looking at the company as a whole, as a potential stock investment, I believe SWUT has a lot to offer. Basically, it is a company with a a strong history of performance, trading at a discount. In the following section, I expand a bit more on these key aspects. For those interested in digger a bit deeper into my commentary, read the full report on SW Umwelttechnik Stoiser & Wolschner here.

Solid track record and good value

Over the past few years, SWUT has more than doubled its earnings, with its most recent figure exceeding its annual average over the past five years. Not only did SWUT outperformed its past performance, its growth also surpassed the Construction industry expansion, which generated a 15% earnings growth. This is an optimistic signal for the future. SWUT's shares are now trading at a price below its true value based on its discounted cash flows, indicating a relatively pessimistic market sentiment. Investors have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains, if SWUT's projected earnings trajectory does follow analyst consensus growth, which determines my intrinsic value of the company. Also, relative to the rest of its peers with similar levels of earnings, SWUT's share price is trading below the group's average. This bolsters the proposition that SWUT's price is currently discounted.
