Why Fundamental Investors Love Parsley Energy Inc (NYSE:PE)

Phillip Young

Parsley Energy Inc (NYSE:PE) is a company with exceptional fundamental characteristics. Upon building up an investment case for a stock, we should look at various aspects. In the case of PE, it is a company with robust financial health as well as a excellent future outlook. Below, I’ve touched on some key aspects you should know on a high level. For those interested in digger a bit deeper into my commentary, read the full report on Parsley Energy here.

High growth potential with adequate balance sheet

PE’s outstanding revenue growth of 89.9% forecasted for the near future is certainly eye-catching for investors on the hunt for growth, 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 revenue is driven by high-quality cash from PE’s day-to-day business as opposed to one-off income. With a debt-to-equity ratio of 35.8%, PE’s debt level is reasonable. This indicates a good balance between taking advantage of low cost funding through debt financing, but having enough financial flexibility and headroom to grow debt in the future. PE appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 0.39x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated.
