Flawless balance sheet with solid track record

Over the past few years, UTMD has more than doubled its earnings, with its most recent figure exceeding its annual average over the past five years. This illustrates a strong track record, leading to a satisfying return on equity of 21%, which is an optimistic signal for the future. UTMD's ability to maintain an adequate level of cash to meet upcoming liabilities is a good sign for its financial health. This indicates that UTMD has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. UTMD currently has no debt on its balance sheet. This implies that the company is running its operations purely on off equity funding. which is typically normal for a small-cap company. Therefore the company has plenty of headroom to grow, and the ability to raise debt should it need to in the future.
