Simply Wall St

Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I've chosen to put the spotlight on Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:MRCY) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. MRCY is a company with robust financial health as well as a excellent future outlook. Below, I've touched on some key aspects you should know on a high level. For those interested in digging a bit deeper into my commentary, read the full report on Mercury Systems here.

Flawless balance sheet with reasonable growth potential

MRCY'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 implies that MRCY manages its cash and cost levels well, which is a key determinant of the company’s health. Investors should not worry about MRCY’s debt levels because the company has none! This implies that the company is running its operations purely on off equity funding. which is rather impressive for a US$4.2b market cap company. MRCY 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.
