Top 5 Undervalued Stocks To Own Right Now

The market for cranes in North America seems to be coming back nicely after a difficult trough cycle brought on by the sudden downturn in the energy sector, but Manitex (MNTX) have flattened out some – while the stock is up a healthy 50%-plus over the past year, it’s basically flat since the time of my last write-up on the company. In that time, Manitex reported restated financials and continued to see good demand and order growth in its core crane operations.

Manitex shares still look somewhat undervalued on discounted cash flow and potentially more exciting on EV/EBITDA, particularly as EBITDA should ramp up significantly over the next couple of years. Investors shouldn’t lose sight of the risks, including an earlier peak to crane demand and rising input costs, but Manitex is an interesting under-followed machinery recovery story.

A Strong First Quarter

With only two sell-side analysts following the company, “average” estimates don’t necessarily mean all that much here. Nevertheless, Manitex did do better than expected this quarter.
