I've been keeping an eye on Anglo African Oil & Gas plc (LON:AAOG) because I'm attracted to its fundamentals. Looking at the company as a whole, as a potential stock investment, I believe AAOG has a lot to offer. Basically, it is a company with impressive financial health as well as a buoyant growth outlook. Below, I've touched on some key aspects you should know on a high level. For those interested in understanding where the figures come from and want to see the analysis, read the full report on Anglo African Oil & Gas here.

Flawless balance sheet with exceptional growth potential

One reason why investors may be attracted to AAOG is its explosive triple-digit earnings growth potential in the near future. The optimistic bottom-line growth is supported by a similarly outstanding revenue growth over the same time period, which indicates that earnings is driven by top-line activity rather than purely unsustainable cost-reduction initiatives. AAOG'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 implies that AAOG manages its cash and cost levels well, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. AAOG currently 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. AAOG has plenty of financial flexibility, without debt obligations to meet in the short term, as well as the headroom to raise debt should it need to in the future.
