Reasons to buy – WEX
High level decisions on buy or sell for a stock should be driven by
1. The margin that the company makes. i.e. Out of $1 that the company sells how much does the company taken home.
- Here we see WEX makes a margin of 22% on Operating Level and about 14% on Net level. This means that out of $1 that it makes $0.14 is being pocketed as profits.
2. The growth rates of the company on revenue, net income, EPS and Dividend. i.e. If it sold $1 last year how much more did it sell this year.
- Here we see net revenue growth of 21% in the revenue and the net profit figures grew by 65%.
3. The efficiency ratios of the company on Equity and Assets. i.e. How well is the company able to sweat each $1 that it puts to work in the company.
- Here we see WEX makes a Return on Assets of 3% and Return of Equity of 11% which is pretty good.
The company is involved in payment processing and information management services to the United States commercial and government vehicle fleet industry. Since it is in the financial services space the Debt/Liabilities will be high and hence this can be ignored.
