What we like:

Low volatility

The stock’s annual returns have been stable and consistent compared to its sector peers(for a hold period of at least 12 months) and is in the top quartile. Although stability is good, also keep in mind it can limit returns.

Low debt

The company is less leveraged than its peers ,, and is among the top quartile, which makes it more flexible. However, do check the news and look at its sector. Sometimes this is low because the company is not growing and has no growth potential.

What we don’t like:

Low market capitalization

This is among the smaller entities in its sectors with below median market capitalization. That may make it less stable in the long run unless it has a unique technology or market which can help it grow or get acquired in future.

Poor risk adjusted returns

This company is delivering below median risk adjusted returns in its peers. Even if it is outperforming on returns , the returns are unpredictable. Proceed with caution.

Below median dividend returns

The company’s average income yield over the past 5 years has been low compared to its peers. However, it is not a problem if you are not looking for income.

Negative cashflow

The company had negative total cash flow in the most recent four quarters.

Negative free cash flow

The company had negative total free cash flow in the most recent four quarters.

Low Earnings Growth

This stock has shown below median earnings growth in the previous 5 years compared to its sector

Low Revenue Growth

This stock has shown below median revenue growth in the previous 5 years compared to its sector
