Weak Balance Sheet

ORCL's financial position is not ideal. The key is to check whether ORCL is using debt to fuel its growth and the sustainability of that tendency. Highly capital intensive businesses (see Economic Moat) follow this route, which can deeply impact the future prospects of the business.

Consistent Reinvestment of Profits over the past 10 years

ORCL has consistently retained profits. This may put ORCL in a strong position to invest for the future, by buying new machinery, investing in R&D or a number of other options. By effectively using these earnings, ORCL can greatly improve their long-term economic picture.
