This week’s scan searches for stocks with market caps that are less than the amount of cash on their books. As if buying dollars for pennies isn’t enticing enough, we added a few other factors to our scan to increase the odds the companies can maintain or even increase their cash balances.
The companies below have almost no debt and good past and forecast earnings growth. All four companies have had double-digit earnings growth rates for the past five years and are expected to grow by at least 10% over the next five years. As small-cap companies, their high cash balance with low debt offers flexibility to jump on high growth opportunities at the right time.
- Price to Cash < 1.0
- Market Cap >$100 million
- EPS Growth Last 5yrs >10%
- EPS Growth Next 5yrs >10%
- Debt to Equity <.1
Our four companies met our screening requirements, as shown below.
