How Bellicum Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:BLCM) Could Add Value To Your Portfolio

Casey Hall

Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I’ve chosen to put the spotlight on Bellicum Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:BLCM) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. BLCM is a company with strong financial health as well as a excellent growth outlook. In the following section, I expand a bit more on these key aspects. For those interested in digger a bit deeper into my commentary, take a look at the report on Bellicum Pharmaceuticals here.

Excellent balance sheet with high growth potential

Investors in search for stocks with room to flourish should look no further than BLCM, with its expected earnings growth of 26%. 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. BLCM’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 BLCM has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. With a debt-to-equity ratio of 39%, BLCM’s debt level is reasonable. This indicates a good balance between taking advantage of low cost funding through debt financing, but having enough financial flexibility and headroom to grow debt in the future.
