Excellent balance sheet with reasonable growth potential and pays a dividend
TEP’s cash-generating ability is outstanding, with analysts expecting its operating cash flows to flourish by 67.57% in the upcoming year. This underlies the notable 26.87% return on equity over the next few years leading up to 2021. TEP’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 indicates that TEP has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. TEP seems to have put its debt to good use, generating operating cash levels of 0.95x 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.
