Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I've chosen to put the spotlight on Elmos Semiconductor AG (ETR:ELG) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. ELG is a company with great financial health as well as a a strong history of performance. Below is a brief commentary on these key aspects. If you're interested in understanding beyond my broad commentary, read the full report on Elmos Semiconductor here.
Solid track record with excellent balance sheet
Over the past year, ELG has grown its earnings by 22%, with its most recent figure exceeding its annual average over the past five years. Not only did ELG outperformed its past performance, its growth also exceeded the Semiconductor industry expansion, which generated a 21% earnings growth. This is an notable feat for the company. ELG'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 key determinant of the company’s health. ELG appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 0.88x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated.
