Lee Kay

Capitol Health and Technology One can add profound upside to your portfolio. This is because the optimistic growth outlook for their profitability and returns make their high-growth potential appealing relative to their peers. If your holdings could benefit from diversification towards growth stocks, whether it be in reputable tech stocks or green small-caps, take a look at my list of stocks with a bright future ahead.

Capitol Health Limited (ASX:CAJ)

Capitol Health Limited provides diagnostic imaging services to the healthcare market in Australia. Capitol Health was formed in 2006 and with the company’s market cap sitting at AUD A$233.73M, it falls under the small-cap group.

CAJ is expected to deliver a buoyant earnings growth over the next couple of years of 41.85%, driven by a positive double-digit revenue growth of 32.90% and cost-cutting initiatives. Profit growth, coupled with top-line expansion, is a positive indication. This is because net income isn’t artificially inflated by unsustainable activities such as one-off cost-reductions expected in the future. We see this bottom-line expansion directly benefiting shareholders, with expected positive return on equity of 11.83%. CAJ’s bullish prospects on both the top and bottom lines make it an interesting stock to invest more time to understand how it can add value to your portfolio. Thinking of investing in CAJ? I recommend researching its fundamentals here.
