High growth potential with excellent balance sheet

Investors in search for stocks with room to flourish should look no further than HMI, with its expected earnings growth of 40%. Earnings growth is paired with an eye-catching top-line trajectory of 78%, which indicates a high-quality bottom-line expansion, as opposed to those driven simple by unsustainable cost-cutting activities. HMI's strong financial health means that all of its upcoming liability payments are able to be met by its current cash and short-term investment holdings. This suggests prudent control over cash and cost by management, which is a crucial insight into the health of the company. HMI appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 35.38x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated.
