HAYN'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. HAYN seems to have put its debt to good use, generating operating cash levels of 1.94x total debt in the most recent year.

HAYN pays a decent dividend yield to its shareholders, higher than the low-risk savings rate, which is what investors expect when they take on the risk of investing in the stock market. That said, please remember that dividend yields are a function of stock prices and corporate profits, both of which can be volatile.
