From a fundamental point of view, Veritex offers something unique when compared to most of the large market cap banks. Put plainly, VBTX offers a much greater growth potential. However, the company also carries plenty of risks with it. For example, Veritex's balance sheet currently holds $1.07 billion in total debt with just $260 million in cash, making them less financially stable than what is typically expected for a company in the banking sector.

Nonetheless, Veritex’s financial growth has been phenomenal in recent years, with the exception of 2020, since 2017, the company has more than tripled its revenues. Veritex has also grown its net income by about 400%, even though the company took greater losses on the bottom line over this past year. Specifically, Veritex’s net profits fell by 29% in fiscal 2020.

Veritex stock currently trades at a price-earnings ratio of 22.19, which is a great value for a company with such a high growth rate. Overall, investing in Veritex stock now is a very interesting growth and dividend play from a risk-reward perspective.
