In the case of Base Resources Limited (ASX:BSE), there's is a financially-robust company with a a great track record of performance, trading at a discount. 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, take a look at the report on Base Resources here.
Flawless balance sheet and undervalued
BSE has a strong track record of performance. In the previous year, BSE delivered an impressive double-digit return of 11% Unsurprisingly, BSE surpassed the industry return of 8.7%, which gives us more confidence of the company's capacity to drive earnings going forward. BSE is financially robust, with ample cash on hand and short-term investments to meet upcoming liabilities. This indicates that BSE has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is a crucial insight into the health of the company. BSE seems to have put its debt to good use, generating operating cash levels of 2.41x 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.
BSE 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 BSE'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, BSE's share price is trading below the group's average. This bolsters the proposition that BSE's price is currently discounted.
