Excellent balance sheet with high growth potential

HNL is an attractive stock for growth-seeking investors, with an expected earnings growth reaching triple digits in the upcoming year. Earnings growth is paired with an eye-catching top-line trajectory of 54%, which indicates a high-quality bottom-line expansion, as opposed to those driven simple by unsustainable cost-cutting activities. HNL’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 suggests prudent control over cash and cost by management, which is a key determinant of the company’s health. HNL seems to have put its debt to good use, generating operating cash levels of 0.76x total debt in the most recent year. This is also a good indication as to whether debt is properly covered by the company’s cash flows.
