Sonos' financial performance staged an impressive turnaround in fiscal 2021. The company exited fiscal 2021 with a $640 million net cash position and generated $208 million in free cash flow that fiscal year. Sonos is leveraging its financial strength by buying back its stock. The firm is also considering potential M&A activities that could be used to enhance its growth runway, with an eye towards the potential for Sonos to expand into the premium wireless headphone space. Sonos forecasts that it will grow its revenues by double-digits annually in fiscal 2022, though its margins are expected to face moderate headwinds this fiscal year. Shares of SONO have faced sizable selling pressures of late as concerns mount over its medium-term outlook. We love the company's products, but we're cautious on the stock in the near-term given its cloudy EBITDA outlook. That said, we see potential upside in the stock to the high-$20s from a valuation perspective (modestly above where shares are trading at this time).
