Flawless balance sheet with high growth potential

Investors in search for stocks with room to flourish should look no further than DBV, with its expected earnings growth of 35%. 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. DBV’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 DBV has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is a key determinant of the company’s health. With a debt-to-equity ratio of 1.8%, DBV’s debt level is relatively low. DBV has plenty of financial flexibility, without large debt obligations to meet in the short term, as well as the headroom to raise debt should it need to in the future.
