Excellent balance sheet with reasonable growth potential

Investors in search for stocks with room to flourish should look no further than DAN, with its expected earinngs growth of 24%, supported by its outstanding capacity to churn out cash from operating activities, which is predicted to more than double over the next year. This indicates that earnings is driven by top-line activity rather than purely unsustainable cost-reduction initiatives. DAN is financially robust, with ample cash on hand and short-term investments to meet upcoming liabilities. This suggests prudent control over cash and cost by management, which is a key determinant of the company’s health. With a debt-to-equity ratio of 26%, DAN’s debt level is reasonable. This implies that DAN has a healthy balance between taking advantage of low cost debt funding as well as sufficient financial flexibility without succumbing to the strict terms of debt.
