Discounted Cash Flow Calculation for ASX:AMA using Dividend Discount Model Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for AMA Group is arrived at by discounting future dividends to their present value. This approach is used for finance firms where free cash flow is difficult to estimate (e.g. Banks/ Insurance firms).

If the firm does not pay the majority of its earnings out as a dividend this method will often arrive at a value significantly lower than the share price.

See our documentation to learn about this calculation.

Current Discount Checks
For AMA Group to be considered undervalued it must be available for at least 20% below the current price. Less than 40% is even better.
  • AMA Group's share price is below the future cash flow value, and at a moderate discount (> 20%).
  • AMA Group's share price is below the future cash flow value, and at a substantial discount (> 40%).

  • AMA Group has not efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity less than 20%).
  • AMA Group used its assets less efficiently than the AU Commercial Services industry average last year based on Return on Assets.
  • AMA Group's use of capital deteriorated last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed).

  3. Is the recent earnings growth over the last year higher than the average annual growth over the past 5 years? (1 check)

  5. Is the Return on Assets (ROA) above industry average? (1 check)
  6. Has the Return on Capital Employed (ROCE) increased from 3 years ago? (1 check)

Health

 How is AMA Group's financial health and their level of debt?

A company's financial position is much like your own financial position, it includes everything you own (assets) and owe (liabilities).

The boxes below represent the relative size of what makes up AMA Group's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • AMA Group's short term (1 year) commitments are greater than its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • AMA Group's long term commitments exceed its cash and other short term assets.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of AMA Group's finances. If any of them are yellow this indicates they may be out of proportion and red means they relate to one of the checks below.
Assets
Liabilities and shares
The 'shares' portion represents any funds contributed by the owners (shareholders) and any profits.
  • High level of physical assets or inventory.
  • Debt is not covered by short term assets, assets are 0.5x debt.
Historical Debt
Nearly all companies have debt. Debt in itself isn’t bad, however if the debt is too high, or the company can’t afford to pay the interest on its debts this may have impacts in the future.

The graphic below shows equity (available funds) and debt, we ideally want to see the red area (debt) decreasing.

If there is any debt we look at the companies capability to repay it, and whether the level has increased over the past 5 years.
