A Holistic Look At Zogenix, Inc. (NASDAQ:ZGNX)

Simply Wall St

Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I've chosen to put the spotlight on Zogenix, Inc. (NASDAQ:ZGNX) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. ZGNX 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. For those interested in digging a bit deeper into my commentary, take a look at the report on Zogenix here.

Flawless balance sheet with high growth potential

Investors in search for stocks with room to flourish should look no further than ZGNX, with its expected earnings growth of 73%. 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. ZGNX'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 ZGNX manages its cash and cost levels well, which is a crucial insight into the health of the company. Investors should not worry about ZGNX’s debt levels because the company has none! This means it is running its business only on equity capital funding, which is rather impressive for a US$2.2b market cap company. Investors’ risk associated with debt is virtually non-existent and the company has plenty of headroom to grow debt in the future, should the need arise.
