Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I’ve chosen to put the spotlight on Co-Diagnostics, Inc. (NASDAQ:CODX) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. CODX is a company with impressive financial health as well as a buoyant growth outlook. Below is a brief commentary on these key aspects. If you’re interested in understanding beyond my broad commentary, read the full report on Co-Diagnostics here.

Flawless balance sheet with high growth potential

CODX is an attractive stock for growth-seeking investors, with an expected earnings growth of 72% in the upcoming year. Earnings growth is paired with an eye-catching top-line trajectory also doubling over the same period, which indicates a high-quality bottom-line expansion, as opposed to those driven by unsustainable cost-cutting activities. CODX’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 an important determinant of the company’s health. Looking at CODX’s capital structure, the company has no debt on its balance sheet. This implies that the company is running its operations purely on off equity funding. which is typically normal for a small-cap company. Therefore the company has plenty of headroom to grow, and the ability to raise debt should it need to in the future.
