I've been keeping an eye on Sogou Inc. (NYSE:SOGO) because I'm attracted to its fundamentals. Looking at the company as a whole, as a potential stock investment, I believe SOGO has a lot to offer. Basically, it is a company with impressive financial health as well as a excellent future outlook. Below is a brief commentary on these key aspects. For those interested in understanding where the figures come from and want to see the analysis, take a look at the report on Sogou here.

Flawless balance sheet with reasonable growth potential

SOGO is an attractive stock for growth-seeking investors, with an expected earnings growth of 22% in the upcoming year, made up of high-quality, operational cash from its core business, which is expected to increase by 51% next year. This indicates a high-quality bottom-line expansion, as opposed to those driven by unsustainable cost-cutting activities. SOGO's ability to maintain an adequate level of cash to meet upcoming liabilities is a good sign for its financial health. This implies that SOGO manages its cash and cost levels well, which is a key determinant of the company’s health. Investors should not worry about SOGO’s debt levels because the company has none! This means it is running its business only on equity capital 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.
