Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically.

STG is a company with strong financial health as well as a excellent growth outlook. Below is a brief commentary on these key aspects. For those interested in understanding where the figures come from and want to see the analysis, take a look at the report on Straker Translations here.

Flawless balance sheet with high growth potential

Investors in search for stocks with room to flourish should look no further than STG, with its earnings expected to more than double over the next year. This growth in the bottom-line is bolstered by an equally impressive top-line expansion over the same period, which is a sustainable driver of high-quality earnings, as opposed to pure cost-cutting activities. 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 indicates that STG has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. Investors should not worry about STG’s debt levels because the company has none! This means it is running its business only on equity capital 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.
