Vicat: A Cheap Cement Producer With Exposure To Frontier Markets (OTCMKTS:SDCVF)

Vicat (VCT:PA, OTC:SDCVF, OTC:VVCTY) is a French small-cap cement producer majority-owned by the eponymous family. Over the years, it has increased its global footprint, with a focus on emerging and frontier markets like India, Brazil, West Africa, and Central Asia.

This positioning bodes well for the long-term growth of Vicat’s operations, and, interestingly, the stock currently trades at what I consider an unwarranted discount to its peers (see chart below). I expect Vicat to close the gap in the next few months. Beyond that, the company should resume its growth trajectory and continue to reward investors through dividends.
