Bet on 3 Stocks with Solid Sales Growth Amid Coronavirus Woes

In challenging times like these, finding stocks that are expected to record earnings growth in the near term can be a daunting task. Sustained sales growth is a parameter for selecting such stocks.

Sales growth is an important metric for any company, as it is vital for growth projections and helpful in strategic decision making. By monitoring this key metric over multiple time periods, one can clearly understand a company’s growth trend.

In cases when companies incur loss, albeit temporarily, they are valued on the basis of revenues. Top-line growth (or decline) is usually an indicator of a company’s future earnings performance. While price to earnings and price to book value ratios can turn negative and cease to be relevant, the price-to-sales ratio is available even for firms that have hit choppy waters.

A company can improve earnings by resorting to cost-control measures, while maintaining stable revenues. However, superior profits can be achieved through steady revenue growth.

Huge sales numbers do not necessarily convert into profits. So, considering a company’s cash position, in addition to sales numbers, can prove to be more prudent. Substantial cash in hand and a steady cash flow lend a company more flexibility with respect to business decisions and investments.
