How to direct your investments towards companies with high growth potential

Use fundamental analysis to direct your investments towards companies with high growth potential


Investing in the stock market is a marathon, not a sprint. To be successful, it is crucial to choose businesses that are not only doing well today, but also have the potential to grow and prosper in the long term. This requires careful analysis of certain key indicators of their financial health. Here are five fundamental indicators to watch for growth opportunities.

1. Revenue Growth

Revenue growth is often the first metric investors look at when judging the health of a company. A steady increase in turnover means that the company is producing something that the market wants and in increasing quantity. This indicator is even more relevant if analyzed over several years, because it shows the company's ability to increase its sales despite market fluctuations.

2. Operational Result

Operating income, or operating profit, reflects the company's profitability before interest and taxes are calculated. It shows how much the company actually earns from its core operations, without taking into account the sometimes misleading effects of financing decisions or exceptional items. A steady increase in this figure is a sign that the company is well managed and its core business is strong.

3. EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization)

EBITDA gives a clear idea of a company's operating performance by excluding non-cash elements and tax and financial factors. This indicator helps understand the company's cash generation from its core activities. An increasing EBITDA indicates an increased ability to generate profits and, by extension, sustainable growth potential.

4. Free Cash Flow

Free cash flow is the money a company has on hand after covering all its operating and investment costs. It is crucial because it shows the company's ability to self-finance its expansion, repay its debts, and return value to shareholders in the form of dividends or share buybacks. Positive free cash flow is often an indicator of strong financial health and future growth.

5. Net income

Net income represents the company's total profit after all deductions (operational, interest, taxes, and others). This is the amount that can be reinvested in the business, distributed to shareholders or used to reduce debts. Stable, sustained growth in net income over multiple periods signals a business that is not just surviving but actually thriving.

These indicators are not just numbers to be looked at in isolation; they interact and complement each other to provide a complete picture of a company's financial health and growth potential.
