Excellent balance sheet with reasonable growth potential and pays a dividend
HREN'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. HREN's has produced operating cash levels of 0.89x total debt over the past year, which implies that HREN's management has put its borrowings into good use by generating enough cash to cover a sufficient portion of borrowings.
