In the following section, I expand a bit more on these key aspects. If you're interested in understanding beyond my broad commentary, read the full report on Fuling Global here.

Excellent balance sheet with proven track record

In the previous year, FORK has ramped up its bottom line by 21%, with its latest earnings level surpassing its average level over the last five years. Not only did FORK outperformed its past performance, its growth also exceeded the Consumer Durables industry expansion, which generated a 19% earnings growth. This is an optimistic signal for the future. FORK'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 suggests prudent control over cash and cost by management, which is a key determinant of the company’s health. FORK seems to have put its debt to good use, generating operating cash levels of 0.33x 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.
