Very undervalued average dividend payer

WAC's share price is trading at below its true value, meaning that the market sentiment for the stock is currently bearish. This mispricing gives investors the opportunity to buy into the stock at a cheap price compared to the value they will be receiving, should analysts' consensus forecast growth be correct. Compared to the rest of the machinery industry, WAC is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This supports the theory that WAC is potentially underpriced.
