CHOPPIES Value

 Is Choppies Enterprises undervalued based on future cash flows and its price relative to the stock market?

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 at half price, they could be considered undervalued.

In this section, we usually try to help investors determine whether Choppies Enterprises is trading at an attractive price based on the cash flow it is expected to produce in the future. But as Choppies Enterprises has not provided consistent financial data, and the stock also has no analyst forecast or coverage, its intrinsic value cannot be reliably calculated by extrapolating past data or using analyst consensus cash flow predictions.

This is quite a rare situation as 89% of companies covered by Simply Wall St do have a valuation analysis. You can see them here.

Show me the analysis anyway

INTRINSIC VALUE BASED ON FUTURE CASH FLOWS
  • It is not possible to calculate the future cash flow value for Choppies Enterprises. This is due to cash flow or dividend data being unavailable. The share price is BWP0.69.
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 Choppies Enterprises's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

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

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.

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.
