For those interested in understanding where the figures come from and want to see the analysis, read the full report on Qutoutiao here.

Flawless balance sheet with exceptional growth potential

One reason why investors are attracted to QTT is its notable earnings growth potential in the near future of 73%. This growth in the bottom-line is bolstered by an equally impressive top-line expansion over the same period, which is a sustainable driver of high-quality earnings, as opposed to pure cost-cutting activities. QTT's ability to maintain an adequate level of cash to meet upcoming liabilities is a good sign for its financial health. This implies that QTT manages its cash and cost levels well, which is a key determinant of the company’s health. Looking at QTT's capital structure, the company has no debt on its balance sheet. This implies that the company is running its operations purely on off equity funding. which is typically normal for a small-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.
