Value is all about what a company is worth versus what price it is
available for. If you went into a grocery store and all the bananas were on sale

INTRINSIC VALUE BASED ON FUTURE CASH FLOWS
It is not possible to calculate the future cash flow value for
LawFinance. This is due to cash flow or dividend data being
unavailable. The share price is
PRICE RELATIVE TO MARKET
We can also value a company based on what the stock market is willing to pay for
it. This is similar to the price of fruit (e.g. Mangoes or Avocados) increasing
when they are out of season, or how much your home is worth.
The amount the stock market is willing to pay for
is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.
Price based on past earnings
LawFinance's earnings available for a low price, and how does
this compare to other companies in the same industry?
In this section we usually present revenue and earnings growth projections based on the consensus estimates of professional analysts to help investors understand the company’s ability to generate profit. But as LawFinance has not provided enough past data and has no analyst forecast, its future earnings cannot be reliably calculated by extrapolating past data or using analyst predictions.
This is quite a rare situation as 97% of companies covered by Simply Wall St do have past financial data. You can see them here.
