Just last month, k0stid0g004 brought Metropolitan Health's recent price slide to our community's attention: "Can't find any bad news ... so I'm thinking this is just oversold. P/E under 9 and shares are being accumulated by institutions."
In fact, Metropolitan Health even sports a cheapish forward P/E of 7. That represents a discount to listed rivals Continucare (11.8), Coventry (10.4), and WellCare (13.8).
CAPS member BuffettJunior1 elaborates on the bargain opportunity:
Great fundamentals and company!
Here we have a good, undervalued small cap. I didn't only pick this stock because it was dirt cheap, but because of its impressive return on capital. In the long run a company that can sustain a high return on capital will outperform the market significantly.
The company is also in a safe and growing industry. I have no doubts that this stock will do very good in the long run.
