These Factors Make Opera Limited (NASDAQ:OPRA) An Interesting Investment

Amar Chadha

Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I’ve chosen to put the spotlight on Opera Limited (NASDAQ:OPRA) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. OPRA is a company with robust financial health as well as an optimistic future 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 Opera here.

High growth potential with excellent balance sheet

One reason why investors are attracted to OPRA is its notable earnings growth potential in the near future of 52%. The optimistic bottom-line growth is supported by an outstanding revenue growth of 58% over the same time period, which indicates that earnings is driven by top-line activity rather than purely unsustainable cost-reduction initiatives. OPRA’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 an important determinant of the company’s health. OPRA seems to have put its debt to good use, generating operating cash levels of 6.41x total debt in the most recent year. This is also a good indication as to whether debt is properly covered by the company’s cash flows.
