Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I’ve chosen to put the spotlight on Straker Translations Limited (ASX:STG) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. STG is a company with strong financial health as well as a excellent future outlook. In the following section, I expand a bit more on these key aspects. For those interested in digging a bit deeper into my commentary, read the full report on Straker Translations here.
Flawless balance sheet with high growth potential
One reason why investors may be attracted to STG is its explosive triple-digit earnings growth potential in the near future. The optimistic bottom-line growth is supported by an outstanding revenue growth of 69% over the same time period, which indicates that earnings is driven by top-line activity rather than purely unsustainable cost-reduction initiatives. STG’s strong financial health means that all of its upcoming liability payments are able to be met by its current cash and short-term investment holdings. This implies that STG manages its cash and cost levels well, which is a key determinant of the company’s health. Investors should not worry about STG’s debt levels because the company has none! This implies that the company is running its operations purely on off equity funding. which is typically normal for a small-cap company. Investors’ risk associated with debt is virtually non-existent and the company has plenty of headroom to grow debt in the future, should the need arise.
