There is nothing we particularly like
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.
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.
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.
