A Look At OraSure Technologies Inc’s (NASDAQ:OSUR) Exceptional Fundamentals

Andrew Edmonds

Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I’ve chosen to put the spotlight on OraSure Technologies Inc (NASDAQ:OSUR) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. OSUR is a company with strong financial health as well as an optimistic growth outlook. Below, I’ve touched on some key aspects you should know on a high level. For those interested in digger a bit deeper into my commentary, read the full report on OraSure Technologies here.

Flawless balance sheet with reasonable growth potential

OSUR’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 an important determinant of the company’s health. OSUR currently has no debt on its balance sheet. This means it is running its business only on equity capital funding, which is typically normal for a small-cap company. OSUR 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.
