Excellent balance sheet with reasonable growth potential

LON is an attractive stock for growth-seeking investors, with an expected earnings growth of 22% in the upcoming year, made up of high-quality, operational cash from its core business, which is expected to more than double over the next year. This indicates a high-quality bottom-line expansion, as opposed to those driven by unsustainable cost-cutting activities. LON'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 indicates that LON has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. LON's has produced operating cash levels of 0.44x total debt over the past year, which implies that LON's management has put its borrowings into good use by generating enough cash to cover a sufficient portion of borrowings.
