STX’s ability to maintain an adequate level of cash to meet upcoming liabilities is a good sign for its financial health. This suggests prudent control over cash and cost by management, which is a key determinant of the company’s health. STX seems to have put its debt to good use, generating operating cash levels of 4.26x total debt in the most recent year.
