Gerald Huddleston

Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I’ve chosen to put the spotlight on Vanda Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ:VNDA) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. VNDA is a company with robust financial health as well as a buoyant growth outlook. In the following section, I expand a bit more on these key aspects. If you’re interested in understanding beyond my high-level commentary, take a look at the report on Vanda Pharmaceuticals here.

Flawless balance sheet with reasonable growth potential

VNDA is financially robust, with ample cash on hand and short-term investments to meet upcoming liabilities. This implies that VNDA manages its cash and cost levels well, which is a key determinant of the company’s health. Investors should not worry about VNDA’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.
