MTU Aero Engines AG (ETR:MTX): The Best Of Both Worlds

Simply Wall St

Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I've chosen to put the spotlight on MTU Aero Engines AG (ETR:MTX) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. MTX is a financially-robust , dividend-paying company with an impressive track record of performance. Below, I've touched on some key aspects you should know on a high level. For those interested in digging a bit deeper into my commentary, take a look at the report on MTU Aero Engines here.

Flawless balance sheet with solid track record and pays a dividend

MTX delivered a bottom-line expansion of 31% in the prior year, with its most recent earnings level surpassing its average level over the last five years. This illustrates a strong track record, leading to a satisfying return on equity of 21%. which is what investors like to see! MTX'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 MTX manages its cash and cost levels well, which is a crucial insight into the health of the company. Investors should not worry about MTX’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 €12b 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.
