If you're interested in understanding beyond my broad commentary, take a look at the report on Hollysys Automation Technologies here.

Flawless balance sheet and good value

HOLI'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 indicates that HOLI has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is a key determinant of the company’s health. HOLI appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 6.02x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated. HOLI's share price is trading below its true value according to its price-to-earnings ratio of 8.71x compared to its industry as well as the wider stock market, making it a relatively cheap stock compared to its peers.
