Why I Like Tassal Group Limited (ASX:TGR)

Joseph Holm

Attractive stocks have exceptional fundamentals. In the case of Tassal Group Limited (ASX:TGR), there’s is a financially-sound company with a a strong track record high-quality dividend payments, trading at a great value. In the following section, I expand a bit more on these key aspects. For those interested in digger a bit deeper into my commentary, take a look at the report on Tassal Group here.

Flawless balance sheet, good value and pays a dividend

TGR’s strong financial health means that all of its upcoming liability payments are able to be met by its current cash and short-term investment holdings. This suggests prudent control over cash and cost by management, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. TGR appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 0.33x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated. TGR’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 TGR’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, TGR’s share price is trading below the group’s average. This supports the theory that TGR is potentially underpriced.
