As an investor, I look for investments which does not compromise one fundamental factor for another. By this I mean, I look at stocks holistically, from their financial health to their future outlook. In the case of Otonomy, Inc. (NASDAQ:OTIC), it is a company with robust financial health as well as an optimistic growth outlook. Below is a brief commentary on these key aspects. For those interested in understanding where the figures come from and want to see the analysis, take a look at the report on Otonomy here.
Excellent balance sheet with high growth potential
One reason why investors are attracted to OTIC is its notable earnings growth potential in the near future of 58%. This growth in the bottom-line is bolstered by an equally impressive top-line expansion over the same period, which is a sustainable driver of high-quality earnings, as opposed to pure cost-cutting activities. OTIC's ability to maintain an adequate level of cash to meet upcoming liabilities is a good sign for its financial health. This implies that OTIC manages its cash and cost levels well, which is a crucial insight into the health of the company. With a debt-to-equity ratio of 22%, OTIC’s debt level is reasonable. This implies that OTIC 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.
