As an investor, I look for investments which does not compromise one fundamental factor for another. By this I mean, I look at stocks holistically, from their financial health to their future outlook. In the case of RIB Software SE (FRA:RIB), it is a company with robust financial health as well as a buoyant future outlook. In the following section, I expand a bit more on these key aspects. If you’re interested in understanding beyond my broad commentary, read the full report on RIB Software here.
Excellent balance sheet with reasonable growth potential
Investors in search for stocks with room to flourish should look no further than RIB, with its expected earinngs growth of 29%, made up of high-quality, operational cash from its core business, which is expected to increase by 57% next year. This indicates a high-quality bottom-line expansion, as opposed to those driven by unsustainable cost-cutting activities. RIB’s ability to maintain an adequate level of cash to meet upcoming liabilities is a good sign for its financial health. This indicates that RIB has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. RIB seems to have put its debt to good use, generating operating cash levels of 3.57x 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.
