So-Young International Inc. (NASDAQ:SY): The Best Of Both Worlds

Simply Wall St

I've been keeping an eye on So-Young International Inc. (NASDAQ:SY) because I'm attracted to its fundamentals. Looking at the company as a whole, as a potential stock investment, I believe SY has a lot to offer. Basically, it is a company with strong financial health as well as an optimistic future outlook. Below is a brief commentary on these key aspects. For those interested in digging a bit deeper into my commentary, take a look at the report on So-Young International here.

Flawless balance sheet with high growth potential

Investors in search for stocks with room to flourish should look no further than SY, with its expected earnings growth of 55%. The optimistic bottom-line growth is supported by a similarly outstanding revenue growth over the same time period, which indicates that earnings is driven by top-line activity rather than purely unsustainable cost-reduction initiatives. SY's ability to maintain an adequate level of cash to meet upcoming liabilities is a good sign for its financial health. This indicates that SY has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. Investors should not worry about SY’s debt levels because the company has none! It has only utilized funding from its equity capital to run the business, which is typically normal for a small-cap company. SY has plenty of financial flexibility, without debt obligations to meet in the short term, as well as the headroom to raise debt should it need to in the future.
