Today, we decided to present you with a brief analysis of cash per share of Croatian Blue Chip companies.
In November, Croatian companies published their Q3 results, so we decided to update our cash per share analysis for 10 Blue Chip companies within CROBEX 10. The analysis is done in order to see the strength of the balance sheet and how liquid selected companies are. This figure, cash per share, as a percentage of a company’s share price, can give us more insight into the company’s strength on returning the money to shareholders (either through dividends or buybacks), paying down debt, etc.
Cash per Share of Croatian Blue Chips (HRK)
It is important to note that looking solely at cash per share of a company could lead to a misleading conclusion without also taking into consideration the company’s indebtedness, which you can find here.
A high level of cash per share indicates a solid performance of the company, reassuring the shareholders that the company is operating with “enough room” and liquidity to cover for any potential difficulties and that the company has adequate capital.
