Simply Wall St

As an investor, I look for investments which does not compromise one fundamental factor for another. By this I mean, I look at stocks holistically, from their financial health to their future outlook. In the case of CareDx, Inc (NASDAQ:CDNA), it is a company with strong financial health as well as a buoyant growth outlook. Below is a brief commentary on these key aspects. For those interested in understanding where the figures come from and want to see the analysis, take a look at the report on CareDx here.

Flawless balance sheet with exceptional growth potential

One reason why investors are attracted to CDNA is its notable earnings growth potential in the near future of 76%. 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. CDNA is financially robust, with ample cash on hand and short-term investments to meet upcoming liabilities. This implies that CDNA manages its cash and cost levels well, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. Investors should not worry about CDNA’s debt levels because the company has a very miniscule amount on its books. CDNA 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.
