Established dividend payer and good value

PWF's ability to maintain an adequate level of cash to meet upcoming liabilities is a good sign for its financial health. This implies that PWF manages its cash and cost levels well, which is a crucial insight into the health of the company.

PWF'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 PWF's earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains.
