I've been keeping an eye on Stitch Fix, Inc. (NASDAQ:SFIX) because I'm attracted to its fundamentals. Looking at the company as a whole, as a potential stock investment, I believe SFIX has a lot to offer. Basically, it is a company with robust financial health as well as an optimistic growth outlook. In the following section, I expand a bit more on these key aspects. If you're interested in understanding beyond my broad commentary, take a look at the report on Stitch Fix here.

Flawless balance sheet with reasonable growth potential

SFIX is an attractive stock for growth-seeking investors, with an expected earnings growth of 34% in the upcoming year. Earnings growth is paired with an eye-catching top-line trajectory of 51%, which indicates a high-quality bottom-line expansion, as opposed to those driven simple by unsustainable cost-cutting activities. SFIX'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 a key determinant of the company’s health. Investors should not worry about SFIX’s debt levels because the company has none! This implies that the company is running its operations purely on off equity funding. which is rather impressive for a US$2.7b market cap company. Therefore the company has plenty of headroom to grow, and the ability to raise debt should it need to in the future.
