I've been keeping an eye on PEC Ltd. (SGX:IX2) because I'm attracted to its fundamentals. Looking at the company as a whole, as a potential stock investment, I believe IX2 has a lot to offer. Basically, it is a company with great financial health as well as a a great history of performance. Below is a brief commentary on these key aspects. For those interested in digging a bit deeper into my commentary, read the full report on PEC here.

Solid track record with adequate balance sheet

Over the past year, IX2 has grown its earnings by 31%, with its most recent figure exceeding its annual average over the past five years. Not only did IX2 outperformed its past performance, its growth also surpassed the Construction industry expansion, which generated a -37% earnings growth. This is an notable feat for the company. IX2 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 7.9%, IX2’s debt level is acceptable. 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.
