High growth potential with adequate balance sheet

COGEC is an attractive stock for growth-seeking investors, with an expected earnings growth of 67% in the upcoming year. Earnings growth is paired with an eye-catching top-line trajectory of 60%, which indicates a high-quality bottom-line expansion, as opposed to those driven simple by unsustainable cost-cutting activities. COGEC’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 an important determinant of the company’s health. COGEC appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 0.45x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated.
